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. Neo. 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. Neo. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 24h45m 8 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 15h15m 12 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 7h45m 24 mph

3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 3x16A 11 kW † 5h15m 36 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge 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 rapid charging the Volkswagen I.D. Neo.

Volkswagen has not released details about rapid charging the I.D. Neo. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely rapid charging capabilities.

  • Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
  • Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 50 kW 45 kW 45 min 170 mph
CCS (100 kW DC) 100 kW 95 kW 25 min 310 mph
CCS (150 kW DC) 125 kW † 100 kW † 25 min 310 mph

All about the Volkswagen I.D. Neo

Concept car

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. Neo 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.

Pricing

The Volkswagen I.D. Neo has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £23,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Volkswagen I.D. Neo is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Volkswagen I.D. Neo is £20,000.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Volkswagen I.D. Neo is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Volkswagen I.D. Neo is 125 kW (168 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 221 lb-ft. The Volkswagen I.D. Neo is rear wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 8.0 seconds. The estimated top speed is 99 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Volkswagen I.D. Neo has an estimated total capacity of 48 kWh. The usable capacity is 48 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 185 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 5 hours 15 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 7 hours 45 minutes and a charge rate of 24 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 24 hours 45 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 125 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 100 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 25 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 125 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Volkswagen I.D. Neo is about 255 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 156 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.

CO2 Emission

The Volkswagen I.D. Neo 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.
