Charging to Volkswagen e-Golf

Everything drivers need to know about the Volkswagen e-Golf

Combining practical functionality with an exciting driving experience, the Volkswagen Golf is one of the most well-loved auto models on the market. In 2014, Volkswagen Group introduced the e-Golf, the first fully electric model to the Golf lineup, and released a refreshed version for the 2020 model year. The e-Golf electric car delivers everything that drivers have come to know and love about its gas-powered counterpart with the extra pep of an electric-powered drivetrain.

Charging the Volkswagen e-Golf

The Volkswagen e-Golf features a 36 kWh battery pack with an EPA-rated driving range of 125 miles. The e-Golf can charge at a rate of 7.2 kW while charging on a Level 2 EV charger and can be charged up to 80% within an hour with a DC fast charging station. The VW Golf electric car takes over ten hours to be fully charged using a Level 1 EV charger plugged into a standard 120-volt outlet.


In contrast, a powerful Level 2 e-Golf charging station like the JuiceBox can charge the e-Golf battery pack from empty to 100% in around 5 hours. With a Level 2 home charging station, you will wake up every morning fully charged. Both the JuiceBox® 32 and JuiceBox 40 are perfect options for the VW Golf electric car, as either can charge at the car’s maximum charge rate.

For its 2020 update, the VW Golf electric model has the same fast-charging capabilities now included as a standard feature.
