e-mobility electricity tariff

Everything at a glance

Your electricity tariff and consumption, e-car charging, invoices and rewards – all in one smartphone app.

Überwiegend kurze Strecken

Less than 50 km per day

On average, that’s the distance drivers in Germany cover with their vehicles daily

Elektroauto, kurze Ladezeiten

Short charging sessions are often enough

to cover these distances

Abends steigt der Strombedarf

Electricity demand is highest in the evening

because more electricity is consumed in homes

Stoßzeiten Stromverbrauch

This puts a strain on the environment and the power grid

because at these peak times, there often is not enough renewable energy available for this heavy demand

Smart Charging

How you are helping to accelerate the move to renewable energy with Volkswagen Naturstrom Connect:

In Germany, renewable electricity is generated primarily from wind and solar power. At certain times of day there is little sun or wind; at others, sunshine and wind are available in abundance. At particularly sunny or windy times, renewable energy plants may have to be closed off, or ‘curtailed’, so as not to overload the power grid.

The Volkswagen Naturstrom Connect tariff gives you the option of charging your e-car using Smart Charging. This means we will always charge your vehicle at times when there is plenty of renewable energy available. With the Volkswagen Naturstrom Connect app, you will use Smart Charging completely automatically. You can also view your charging sessions and costs at any time. It’s an excellent way to help make better use of electricity from renewable sources.

The solution is Volkswagen Naturstrom Connect.

Our Smart Charging solution works around this challenge. It make sure that you charge your vehicle at home precisely at times when there is plenty of electricity available from renewable sources. Together, we’re helping to reduce fossil fuel consumption. And by making sure that peaks in renewable energy production are ‘mopped up’ by being used for charging, we’re also reducing the risk of ‘curtailment’: when so much renewable energy is produced that it could max out the grid, so is not fed in.

So simple, so smart.
