Earlier this Volkswagen and Eaton executives met a small group of journalists at the VW Research Laboratory in Belmont, to discuss VW’s partnership Eaton on AC and DC charging, followed by a conversation about VW’s for vehicle electrification over the several years. Topics the upcoming introduction of the blue Golf electric vehicle, called the e-Golf, near the end of (early 2014 for the US market), as as Volkswagen’s goal of achieving 3% of its sales through plug-in by 2018.

That goal is part of overarching Strategie 18, in which the manufacturer hopes to trump in global sales by the same Volkswagen sold 9.07 vehicles in 2012 to Toyota’s 9.7 assuming 10 million vehicles per year in 2018, VW would to move 300,000 plug-in per year to meet their

Plug-in Charging. The gathering the introduction of Eaton’s DC quick (link ), one of which is now installed at The charger has a maximum output of 50 kW, and is using 10 kW modules, or “power to allow for expansion: for example, a can specify a 20 kW charger, and scale up to 30, 40, or 50kW as needed.

Although the charger at ERL is equipped with the new SAE Combined Charging System for AC or DC charging (earlier post ), and supports the new standard, both and VW said that they support CHAdeMO if that prevails, particularly in the Japanese Eaton’s John Wirtz “ it would not be difficult ” to equip DC charger with charge for either standard, or with cables for both standards, if

Volkswagen’s Rudolf Krebs, who VW’s electric powertrain further explained that VW plug-in charging as evolving four levels:

single-phase AC;

fast three-phase AC (in

DC charging of up to 20kW; and

public DC of up to 86 kW.

Three-phase AC is readily available in parts of Europe, and is used in areas to power high-demand DC quick charging will be for VW’s battery electric but not for their plug-in hybrids: usage patterns, in the company’s renders DC charging “unnecessary”.

sentiment echoes the position by General Motors; in a previous GM’s Larry Nitz, Director of Hybrid and Electric Engineering, observed that half of all Volt users use Level 1 (110V AC, standard receptacle) charging equipment to their vehicles, eschewing 2 (240V AC) chargers altogether.

Volkswagen also expects hybrids to coalesce around an range of 35 miles in the United as well as a slightly shorter 50 km (31 range in other markets, by governmental policies, including policy in China.

Which standard will prevail?
