PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
This car is 100% battery-electric. It has a range of 200-250 km in warm weather, and approximately 130-150 in the cold winter weather. However, you get the benefit of a quiet drive, instant torque, and best of all, you don’t need to worry about paying for gas!
If you are planning to take a road trip in this car, especially if you have no experience with EVs, you will need to plan ahead and identify charging stations along the way. DC Fast Chargers will give you a boost of 75-85 km per 30 minutes of charging time. J-1772 chargers can charge the car once you arrive at your destination, and can fully charge the car from almost empty to full in about 4-5 hours. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW THE BATTERY LEVEL TO DROP TOO LOW! Once the Distance Warning appears (usually when there is only 50 km of range left), head to the nearest charger so that you are not left without battery on the road.
This car is well equipped with plenty of technology. It has the upgraded, big touch screen display which has VW’s navigation system and backup camera and is also Apple CarPlay and Android Auto enabled.
If you’re looking for a cheap car to use for short trips or to get around the city, or are curious about what it’s like to drive an electric vehicle, this is the car for you!
Some important apps you should have on your phone to help with finding and using charging stations: Plugshare, ChargePoint, Flo.
If you have any questions, reach out and I’ll gladly explain everything!
