rejuvenation swaps / 90% charge

Thu Jul 15, 2021 7:04 pm

I commute 35 miles each way. The e-Golf is a great car for doing this and I am extremely happy. (2019 e-Golf SE)

1) I use the ease of swapping rejuvenation modes like a stick shift and will switch a lot. Generally staying in Level 1, but increasing it as I come towards traffic or stop light/sign or general need to slow. Is this a bad idea? Cause any form of damage? VAG/COM capability to turn off the "pop-up" notification of status and just have the icon?

2) I like the idea of only charging to 90% on a regular basis. Is there any way to program a max charge of 90% and still use the charge now button? Or do I have to use the schedule? Any tricks to make it act like charge now but max of 90%?

Thanks for any tips/thoughts/advice.

1. I do something similar but only once or twice a year on my return trip from the mountains. Anything mechanical will eventually break, so if you are constantly adjusting modes, the selector is likely to wear out sooner than otherwise. I have not advice on screen displays.

2. In the e-manager set minimum SoC to 90%.

I see how to set the settings of a max charge for a delayed charge but when I do not seem to get that as an option for immediate charge. Feel like I am missing something here.

Each location setting has a minimum charge SoC. It is described in the owners manual.

understand that part - but I can only seemingly tell the system to charge based on a location for delayed charging.

which is fine. I can manage the delayed charging settings.

Yes, VW programmed delayed charging with a location. Glad you were able to find a solution.
