Hi All

I own since Monday (22/9) an e-Golf the car is great but the range is tight but worst of all it is that I can't charge it at many CCS charging points. I managed it on one poit in Georges Yard Braintree but at Beaconsfield services and along the M4 as at Bristol science park no connection possible
What are you experiences on CCS charging?

Thanks

Stephan

Maybe post in the General section or even the i3; can't imagine there are many members with an e-Golf. How are you finding it...and don't forget to post pics in the 'Show us your EV thread'.

Welcome @Stephan it's excellent to have an e-Golf driver join us here, hopefully the first of many!

I would also suggest a double post of this question (or a variation of) in the general charging forum, to increase your odds of another CCS equipped car owner spotting it. :)

Come to think of it, Simon Crowfoot mentioned this at the Malvern event on Sunday.

My e-Up is working well on CCS chargers, but I did also see that tweet from Ecotricity about the E-Golf... It's not an issue with CCS not working on the chargers, but maybe a current level one as the e-Golf can take more current over CCS can't it?

*edited to make more sense*

Hi,

It has been advised that after the initial requirements for the CCS charging within the eGolf and passing charging standards on to such companies as Ecotricity and the Chargepoint manufacturers, VW decided to change some of the parameters/protocols, etc but then did not notify anyone else further.

The issue has not become apparent until deliveries have started taking place.

That's a VW ball that is rolling around on the floor, no one else's...

the car is well designed, the regenerating braking is great, adaptive cruise control as standard...
And an app to control charging and climate of the car whilst plugged in...
God, she's purdy.... Jet black was the right choice sir!

Fancy showing us the DRLs? They are the same shape and style as the Up I believe.

What range are you getting on it Stephan? The E-Up has settled at around 90 miles range being sensible.
