eUp!, white, still, charging

Recharge not refuel.
How does it actually work?

It’s as easy to recharge an electric car as it is to pump petrol or diesel at a filling station.
There are several options and each has its own advantages.

Recharging at a Socket-Outlet

There’s a little filling station in your own home: you can charge an electric car at any standard, fully functional household socket. It’s just like a vacuum cleaner or a smartphone that runs on batteries – simply plug your car in and it will start to recharge. The power comes from your electricity company and is added to your monthly bill. You don't need to change anything.

Clean Energy

This is the simplest and easiest choice for recharging your electric car, because you can find socket-outlets almost everywhere. And if you want a car that’s powered not just with electricity, but with green electricity, switch to an energy supplier that gets its energy from renewable sources.


Recharging at the Wallbox 

Power on a platter: the Wallbox is installed for an extra charge and connected directly to your household circuit. You're billed for recharges by your everyday energy provider. Park your car with the Wallbox on your right-hand side and plug in the cable. On request the wallbox can be installed by one of our cooperation partners.

Energy Overnight

The Wallbox recharges the e-up! and e-Golf up to three hours faster than a regular household socket-outlet. Charging is complete when the green light flashes on the Wallbox, or when the Car-Net app indicates the battery is full.

Recharging at an AC Charging Station

Recharging at an AC Charging Station

A snack on the go: many public charging stations now work by mobile phone. Just send a text message to the station’s number and your recharge will be enabled. Payment will be listed on your phone bill. Local energy providers often offer a customer card for charging stations. For these stations, you will need your own charging cable.

Flexible Recharging

Public charging stations will soon be available almost everywhere and will allow flexible recharging at any time – even in car parks. Find out about services in your area and look for the most convenient stations for your route.


Recharging at a CCS Station

CCS stands for "Combined Charging System". If your car has the right equipment, this means that a top up at a CCS station is powered by both alternating and direct current electricity. The cable is usually provided by the station, and you just connect it directly into the vehicle inlet. Payment is managed with the same system as AC charging stations.

Turbo Loading

DC charging provides a higher current. What this means for you: your car battery will recharge much faster than with any other charging method. Starting with an empty battery, it can take just 30 minutes to complete an 80% recharge for an electric car. E-mobility is even more flexible with CCS.
