We Charge: Volkswagen’s new charging service has over 150,000 public charging points
As e-mobility increasingly takes to the road, public charging is becoming ever more important. With We Charge, Volkswagen is offering customers the right solution for swift, hassle-free travel in Germany and Europe – electric, eco-friendly and above all, convenient, said Richard van Tatenhove, Head of Digital Charging Services at Volkswagen.
The charging tariffs are tailored to the different user groups. We Charge Go offers lower prices for individual charging processes and is the right choice for regular users of public charging points. We Charge Plus is the tariff for all frequent drivers.
Digital control via We Connect ID. app
With the app, users can easily locate all available We Charge charging points. The app also provides important information on charging price and charging point availability (free / in use). Going forward, the app will also give users the option to only show charging points that operate on green power. The intelligent route guidance takes into account available charging points as well as the chosen charging strategy. Furthermore, We Charge gives users of the ID.
Complete ecosystem for electric car drivers
At the same time, the brand is offering a complete package for convenient and sustainable charging of electric vehicles – the “We Charge” service. The ID. Electric cars can be run emission-free with certified Volkswagen Naturstrom® generated from renewable energy sources. All of these service and products are developed by the Volkswagen subsidiary Elli that is tasked with pushing ahead with charging within the Group.
