Electric vehicles are increasing in popularity and it's easy to see why. With many environmental benefits as well as great personal advantages to the driver, there has never been a better time to make the switch.
Volkswagen first started their electric movement over 50 years ago, with years of pioneering research it has helped the brand launch their electric range.
If you use your electric car to travel around 30 miles a day, you will only need to charge it around
once or twice a week. Ideally, you can do this at home overnight using your optional wall box.
When it comes to conserving energy, the heater and air conditioning systems can make a big difference to your vehicle’s range. The outside temperature can also sometimes affect the electric car’s range.
The e-Remote stores your e-Volkswagen’s data in your smartphone. It can be used to find out where the nearest place to charge up is, where you parked your car and the battery’s charge level. It also set your air conditioning levels and let you know whether you locked the doors and turned off the lights. The e-Remote stores your e-Volkswagen’s data in your smartphone.

We’ve made charging your electric vehicle simple and accessible, allowing you to charge at home, on the go and even in a rush.
