      Thanks,
      1) ~26 hours, keep in mind though you should keep your battery between 25-90% meaning your charge time will vary. I never go below 25% and my charge time is much less and my battery will hopefully last longer also

      2) Depending on your L2 charger rate and what the charger your using can put out... 3.6kw will be <8 hours, 7.2kw will be <4 hours. I think all the new egolf have the 7.2kw charger though.

      3) not required but if you want to refill your battery quickly and/or drive more than the range of your car in one day and/or don't have access to a public charger, you'll need to install one.

      4) Old ones get 60-100 miles depending on driving style and weather. New ones go 125+ miles

      1) How much time take to full charge eGolf using Home Charger ? using the 110v = 18ish hours if on E

      2) How much time take to full charge eGolf using Level 2 Charger ? 240v= 4 hours if on E

      3) Is Level 2 charger is required to install at Home ? If you plan on switching to a EV electricity plan with your utility company, yes

      4) How much mileage eGolf is giving ? I have the Gen 1 battery. VW rated it at 83 miles. With in-town driving we were getting 100-110 easily. 3 years/45k miles later its around 90.


      Thanks,
      see in bold above
