Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

It may interest you to know that there are two methods of charging your Volkswagen ID.4 Pure. You can either use a regular wall plug or a charging station. However, public charging while on the move is only possible through a charging station. Using a wall plug is inadequate in such cases. The charging speed of your EV is dependent on the type of charging station you choose, as well as the maximum capacity of your EV's charging. For a comprehensive breakdown of the available charging options for your Volkswagen ID.4 Pure, along with the estimated duration required for a full battery recharge, please refer to the table below.


Charging an electric vehicle (EV) across Europe can vary significantly from country to country. Certain European nations rely heavily on a 1-phase connection to the grid, while others primarily use a 3-phase connection. The table below lists all the potential methods for charging a Volkswagen ID.4 Pure. However, some charging options may not be readily available in specific countries. We recommend that you contact your local electric vehicle charging networks to determine the charging options that are available to you.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Efficient charging is crucial for extending the range of your journey by quickly adding a substantial amount of range. Once the battery reaches an 80% state of charge, the charging power significantly reduces, resulting in traditional fast charging rarely surpassing 80% SoC. The speed of electric vehicle charging involves both the charging station utilized and the maximum charging power that the EV can support. To get a comprehensive guide on fast charging the Volkswagen ID.4 Pure on our charging stations, refer to the table provided below.

  • 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%
