Charging guide

Home and Destination Charging (0 → 100%)

Were you aware that you have two options to charge your Volkswagen ID.4 Pure Performance? You can either charge it using a standard wall plug or a specially-designed charging station. However, when you're on the road, it's only possible to use a charging station for public charging; a wall plug won't suffice. The speed at which your EV will charge is dependent on the type of charging station or EVSE you use, as well as your EV's maximum charging capacity. Check out the table below - it provides all the available charging options for your Volkswagen ID.4 Pure Performance, as well as the estimated time required to fully charge the battery from empty.


Charging an electric vehicle (EV) in Europe can differ from country to country. Some European countries primarily use 1-phase connections to the grid, while others mainly use a 3-phase connection. The table below presents all possible ways of charging a Volkswagen ID.4 Pure Performance. However, some charging modes may not be accessible in certain countries. To find out which options are available to you, please confirm with your local electric vehicle charging networks.

Fast Charging (10 → 80%)

Fast charging is essential for increasing the range of your journey by adding the maximum possible amount of range in the shortest amount of time. When the battery reaches 80% state-of-charge, the charging power will decrease noticeably. Therefore, conventional fast charging usually does not exceed an 80% SoC. The speed of charging an electric vehicle depends on both the charging station used and the EV's maximum charging power. The following table provides a comprehensive guide for fast-charging the Volkswagen ID.4 Pure Performance.

  • 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%
