Even if electric cars are still considered exotic today. Why? Because consumers have a certain skepticism towards them. Because consumers are worried about the range. Because consumers are worried by a horrifying scenario: staying put on a longer journey with an empty battery, far away from the next charging station.
But these worries are already mostly unfounded today. For example, the average daily distance travelled by a commuter in Germany is 35 kilometers. This means that an average commuter with a vehicle that today has a range of 200 kilometers, for example, only has to recharge about once a week. So, it is easy to factor in when the car should be recharged overnight at the home socket, or during working hours at a charging station during the day.
Volkswagen Group will be presenting two completely new products at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt from September 12 to 22: the ID.31, the first all-electric car with a range of 330 to 550 kilometers and the ID. Charger, the matching Wallbox for charging at home.
