In fact on the VW website the basic model is 6 + 23 at £170 + Vat per month. So its worth checking with the dealerships for offers. We are interested in one for our local journeys and it won't be our only van.
It seems that the van is only supplied with a 5 metre 20 amp type 2 charging cable. I presume this problem can be solved by purchasing a 32a Type 2 cable but wondered whether anyone else has taken delivery of one of these vans yet? Is this normal for VW to supply with low amp cable? It has CCS.

Yes interestingly in the original deal they do offer the more basic spec but the price is higher !


I guess due to expected future values?

Also on the cable VW has form on this in the past early e-Golfs came with lower power cables and some got free swaps from VW I think. it may be to do with the fact that 3 phase power at home is much more common in Germany and so you can get away with a smaller cable and still get 11kw on 3 phase.
