Does a Volkswagen electric car fit my lifestyle?

Our electric vehicles can go further than ever before on a single charge, they charge much faster too.

Plus the ever-growing charging infrastructure is now bigger than ever, with more charging points than fuel stations. We understand that making the switch can seem daunting but, rest assured, whatever your lifestyle, there’s a Volkswagen electric vehicle to suit your needs. 

Our electric vehicles have come a long way

  • Range capabilities

    Electric vehicle battery technology has evolved massively over the last few years. If you use your car, like most drivers, to run errands, for the school run or to drive to work you probably average less than 19.5 miles per day. Which means you’ll only need to fully charge once every couple of weeks. Longer journeys are fine too, 280 - 435 miles is the range our IDs are now hitting.

    Charging options

    You can charge your Volkswagen electric vehicle with a 3-pin plug. This is the slowest method but basically means you can charge anywhere there’s electricity. What we recommend is that you install an Ohme wallbox, which allows you to fully charge quicker and easier. Since December 2022 the public charging network has grown by 45%. Zapmap recently revealed that there are now more charging points in the UK than fuel stations, many of them now offering fast charging.

  • Cost Comparison

    There are many financial benefits to owning a Volkswagen electric vehicle which include a range of government grants and schemes that make buying an EV cheaper. The government also offers a grant that helps to make installing a wallbox charger at home cheaper too. The offer extends to homeowners who live in flats and rented accommodation. As an EV owner, you’ll also avoid payments for entering the Congestion Zone and Ultra-Low Emission Zone.

Did you know that the way you drive effects the power you use? 

Driving modes

Our electric and hybrid vehicles come with distinct driving modes to give you control over how your car’s power is distributed.

How do I know I’m an EV driver?

Volkswagen electric vehicles are ideal as everyday cars, but if you’re still unsure, our EV Check App will help you to decide by analysing the way you drive and matching you to our most appropriate model. It also displays charging stations in your area.

Still worried about longer journeys?

Volkswagen electric vehicle ranges are continually growing, but there might come a time when you do need to use a charging station, particularly on longer journeys, like going on holiday for example. As part of your sat nav, the EV Route Planner maps out your journey making sure there are charging stations along the way should you need them.
