Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Volkswagen Passat GTE. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||4h15m||5 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||2h45m||7 mph|

All about the Volkswagen Passat GTE
No longer available
This electric vehicle is no longer in production and not available to buy new. The Volkswagen Passat GTE was available from June 2015 until August 2018. Financial data like price, leasing and company car tax were applicable to the final year of availability of the Volkswagen Passat GTE.
The Volkswagen Passat GTE had a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £36,775 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £37,430. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Volkswagen Passat GTE is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). The maximum power of the Volkswagen Passat GTE is 160 kW (215 hp). The maximum torque is 295 lb-ft. The Volkswagen Passat GTE is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 7.4 seconds. The top speed is 140 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Volkswagen Passat GTE has a total capacity of 9.9 kWh. The usable capacity is 8 kWh (estimate). A range of about 20 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.
For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 14 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 29 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 3.7 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 2 hours 45 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 4 hours 15 minutes.
Rapid charging is not possible.
The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Volkswagen Passat GTE is about 400 Wh per mile in electric-only mode. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 101 mpg in a traditional petrol car.
The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 570 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 275 Wh per mile.
The Volkswagen Passat GTE has a combined (electric and fuel) range of about 517 mi, of which about 20 of fully electric range. Please note that, even when driving in full-electric mode, the internal combustion engine may kick in under high loads.
When the battery is empty or 'hold charge' mode is engaged, the fuel consumption is about 46 mpg on the combined (motorway and city) cycle. When starting off with a full battery and applying a moderate driving style, no fuel is consumed over a 15 mile trip and fuel consumption is about 113 mpg over a 30 mile trip and 64 mpg over a 60 mile trip.
The combined average consumption of petrol of the Volkswagen Passat GTE will therefor depend on the average trip distance and whether the car is charged before each trip. Climate, driving style and route will have a further impact on the actual fuel consumption. The official figures in accordance with the NEDC driving cycle for fuel consumption of 177 mpg and a range of 647 mi are irrelevant in practice.
While driving in full-electric mode, the Volkswagen Passat GTE will not emit any CO2. When the battery is empty, or if the engine load is high, the internal combustion engine will be used. As fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are directly proportional, the average CO2 emssions of a Volkswagen Passat GTE will depend greatly on several key factors that determine fuel consumption. Note: CO2 emissions are calculated per kilometre.
When driving using only the petrol engine, CO2 emissions will be around 146 grams of CO2 per kilometre on the combined (motorway and city) cycle. However, if the average trip distance is relatively short and the car is charged between trips, the average CO2 emissions will be reduced significantly.
CO2 Emissions will drop to 0 g/km on a 15 mile trip, 59 g/km on a 30 mile trip and 103 g/km on a 60 mile trip. This only includes tailpipe CO2 emissions. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels. The offical figures in accordance with the NEDC driving cycle for CO2 emissions of 37 g/km are for comparison of vehicles only and have no relevance in practice.
