Volkswagen EVs: Frequently Asked Questions
Are EVs more expensive than traditional gasoline-powered vehicles?
While some EVs may have a higher MSRP than their gas-powered counterparts, almost all electric cars will likely save you money in the long run thanks to their reduced maintenance needs and the low cost of electricity relative to gasoline. Additionally, there are often federal EV incentives available that can help bring your final purchase price even lower than you thought possible.
What is the range of an EV and how far can I drive before needing to recharge?
The range of models like the new VW ID.4 EV will vary based on several factors, but most modern EVs can travel well over 200 miles on a single charge. However, it's important to note that factors such as driving habits, weather conditions and local terrain can all affect total range.
How long does it take to recharge an EV?
The time it takes to recharge an EV depends primarily on the car's battery capacity and the charging method used. Level 1 charging, which uses a standard household outlet, can take a day or more to fully recharge an EV, while a dedicated Level 2 charging station can typically provide a full charge overnight. Rapid DC charging, available at some public EV charging stations in San Antonio and elsewhere, can often provide a significant charge in under an hour, allowing you to quickly get back on the road.
