VW ID Charger Wallbox
In time for the on-sale of the VW ID.3 electric car, Volkswagen is launching the wall box ID.Charger. It is available to order online for clients in eight European countries, and the basic version costs 399 euros – without installation.

VW had announced the wall box in September 2019 and has kept in line with the pricing policy. In an exclusive interview with our German sister-site electrive.net, Martin Roemheld, VW’s Head of e-Mobility Services said: “We wanted to achieve a very attractive price.” The prices for the two other versions, ID.Charger Connect (starting at 599 Euro, with LTE module 799 Euro) and ID.Charger Pro (849 Euro), also correspond to the announcement at that time. However, the prices for the optional installation service are new. Depending on the version, VW subsidiary Elli charges around 1,600 euros for this service – which raises the prices to €2,049 and €2,429. To deliver, Volkswagen is teaming up with certified electrical contractors for installation, and potential customers can also complete a free pre-check online.

I remember hearing about these when they were announced. I love that this is a more secure option but the cost is up there, that is for sure. It is probably worth it though if you drive a Volkswagen.
