Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Volkswagen ID.3. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

NOTE: Volkswagen has not released details about the on-board charger of the ID.3. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.


Charging an EV in Europe differs by country. Some European countries primarily use 1-phase connections to the grid, while other countries are almost exclusively using a 3-phase connection. The table below shows all possible ways the Volkswagen ID.3 can be charged, but some modes of charging might not be widely available in certain countries.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 24h45m 12 km/h
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 15h15m 20 km/h
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 7h45m 39 km/h
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 5h15m 58 km/h
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW † 5h15m 58 km/h

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Fast Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Volkswagen ID.3.

Volkswagen has not released details about rapid charging the ID.3. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely rapid charging capabilities.

  • Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
  • Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%


Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 50 kW 45 kW 45 min 280 km/h
CCS (100 kW DC) 100 kW 75 kW † 30 min 420 km/h
CCS (175 kW DC) 100 kW † 75 kW † 30 min 420 km/h

† = Limited by fastcharge capabilities of vehicle

NOTE: Most rapid charges are currently limited to 50 kW. Chargers with more power are expected in the near future.
