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 I.D.. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
NOTE: Volkswagen has not released details about the on-board charger of the I.D.. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Car Uses||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||30h45m||7 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||19h15m||12 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||9h45m||24 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||230V / 3x16A||11 kW||6h30m||36 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||230V / 3x16A||11 kW †||6h30m||36 mph|
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)
Fastcharging is only possible at public charging points. Fastchargers enable longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. As fastcharges will only charge a battery up to 80% of its capacity at full speed, the optimal fastcharge is between 10% and 80% SoC. The fastcharge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for fastcharging the Volkswagen I.D..
NOTE: Volkswagen has not released details about fast charging the I.D.. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely fast charging capabilities.
|Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)|
|Charging Point||Car Uses||Time||Rate|
|CCS (50 kW DC)||50 kW||55 min||170 mph|
|CCS (100 kW DC)||100 kW||30 min||320 mph|
|CCS (150 kW DC)||100 kW †||30 min||320 mph|
† = Limited by fastcharge capabilities of vehicle
NOTE: Most rapid charges are currently limited to 50 kW. Chargers with more power are expected in the near future.
All about the Volkswagen I.D.
This electric vehicle is a concept: data marked with * are estimates and other data might not be officially confirmed. The text below is written as if the Volkswagen I.D. would be available today. Please note that data for the final production version might differ significantly from the concept. The purpose of listing this concept vehicle is to give an insight in upcoming vehicles and EV trends.
The Volkswagen I.D. has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £30,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Volkswagen I.D. is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £4,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Volkswagen I.D. is £26,000.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Volkswagen I.D. is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Volkswagen I.D. is 125 kW (168 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 221 lb-ft. The Volkswagen I.D. is rear wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 8.0 seconds. The top speed is 99 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Volkswagen I.D. has an estimated total capacity of 60 kWh. The usable capacity is 60 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 230 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.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 6 hours 30 minutes. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 9 hours 45 minutes and a charge rate of 24 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 30 hours 45 minutes.
Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 100 kW, which charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 160 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Volkswagen I.D. is about 260 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 155 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.
The Volkswagen I.D. emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
