The table below shows the estimated charging time for your e-Golf from 0 to 100% with slow chargers as well as from 20 to 80% with rapid chargers. The reason we only include 20 to 80% for fast chargers is due to them slowing down once they hit 80%, as all rapid chargers do this to protect the batteries life.
