Re: Question for 2017-2019 Owners

I've gotten 149 mi. out of a charge with 4 mi. remaining. As a rough guess, that's with about 5% highway driving, and 10% with my wife running her seat heater.

Re: New 2019 e-Golf SEL Owner

Before I turned in the 2016 e-Golf, it was still estimating about 100 miles on a full charge, but I almost never went to a full charge because time-based charging meant that the last 10-15 minutes raised the cost. In hindsight, this micro-optimization saved little cash, but might have helped protect...

Re: 2016 e-Golf tires for sale in Portland, Oregon

I know I drive conservatively, like an old man, how else do I get 6 to 6.3 m /kwh... Think I am at 19800 miles now... and I measured tread depth, I still have 8/32" tread left on my original Ecopia's. Yes, the Ecopias seem to hold up well. Checking the pre-turn-in report on my 2016, I had 28,6...

Charging curve on 2016 vs. 2019

Charging to the old 2016 e-Golf, I saw a characteristic curve where the car gradually accepted less power in the last 10 minutes as it approached 100% SOC. Filling up the 2019, it looks like the car doesn't ramp down, but goes straight to 0. I'm curious why I'm seeing this behavior? Below I have URL...

Re: Speculation about 2019 e-Golf

We found the nearby Chevy dealer had interrupted the charge on my car in order to plug a Bolt into the DCFC station, so my departure was delayed. They were able to unplug you? Was the car locked? I find that DCFC in particular has issues of “letting go” on my 2015 even if I unlock the car. This was...

Re: Speculation about 2019 e-Golf

I found a way to qualify for VW partner pricing, and sprang for a 2019 lease from Capitol VW. We found the nearby Chevy dealer had interrupted the charge on my car in order to plug a Bolt into the DCFC station, so my departure was delayed. However, I was glad to start out with a fully charged vehicl...

Re: Speculation about 2019 e-Golf

The rush for red California HOV stickers makes me wonder if I might do better to wait until later in 2019, and sit on a lease extension in the meantime. I don't use the freeways that much... Sit on the lease extension until January at the least, wait for the white sticker cars to decrease in value ...

Re: Speculation about 2019 e-Golf

I missed picking up a 2018 before stock ran out, but I'm talking to a couple of dealers about 2019s; one reports getting a few on their lot as of 12/18. There's a feature matrix one sent -- I don't have a place to host it, otherwise I would share it here. It looks like the 2019s are getting some mor...

Re: 2016 e-Golf max DC Fast Charging Rate

The InsideEVs curve for the 26kWh e-Golf is consistent with the one time I used a Chargepoint DCFC with my '16. Power started around 40 kW and rose slowly to 43.8 kW, then sloped down. I unplugged when the charger reported 91% SOC -- no other charger I've used has reported this info.
