Charging guide

Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Did you know that there are two charging options for your Volkswagen e-Up!? You can either utilize a standard wall plug or a charging station. Nonetheless, if you are on the go, it is necessary to opt for a charging station as a wall plug won't be sufficient. The charging speed of your EV depends on the type of charging station you use, as well as your maximum charging capacity. The table provided below shows all the available charging alternatives for your Volkswagen e-Up!, along with an estimated time needed for a full battery recharge.


Charging an electric vehicle (EV) in Europe can vary from country to country. Depending on the region, some countries use 1-phase connections to the grid, while others mostly use 3-phase connections. The table below displays all the charging options for a Volkswagen e-Up!. However, certain charging modes may not be available in certain countries. To determine the available options in your area, please check with your local electric vehicle charging networks.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Rapid charging is crucial for maximizing the distance you can travel by allowing you to add as much range as possible in the shortest period of time. Once you reach an 80% state of charge, charging power will reduce significantly. Therefore, a usual fast charge hardly ever surpasses 80% SoC. The speed of electric vehicle rapid charging depends on the charging station utilized and the maximum charging power that the EV can support. The table presented below offers a comprehensive summary of the rapid charging process for the Volkswagen e-Up!.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
