If you want 80% all the time, and never ever have it charge above 80% unless you explicitly tell it to by pressing the "charge now" button:

Set your minimum charge to 80%
Set one departure timer for literally any day and time (it doesn't matter), and set the maximum charge to 80%.

Now you can forget about it and your car will never ever charge above 80% unless you tell it to. Works great for me!


That's what I've done, and since I let CarNet expire (and thus cannot change it on my 2015 without re-subscribing) it works exactly as I always wanted it to.


If I use this method on the 2019 eGolf, is there an easy way to change to 95% charge for occasional roadtrips? After Carnet expires, any way to toggle between 80% and 95% SOC via the car itself and not through the app?


Vehicle menu > e-Manager.

You can change all the charge settings in-car in 2016+ models.

You can only choose 10% increments though so you would pick 100%. (100% is probably more like 90% real state of charge so it’s ok to charge to 100% when you do need the full range. Just don’t leave it at 100% for extended periods :)

Good info, thanks!
