US:Volkswagen selects Bosch and ChargePoint as e-Golf charging solution providers

Volkswagen of America has announced providers of charging services for e-Golf models, the first zero-tailpipe emissions electric vehicle to be sold by Volkswagen in the US market. The e-Golf will go on sale later in 2014 as a 2015 model. Bosch Automotive Service Solutions has been selected as a charging station and installation services partner for the e-Golf. ChargePoint was chosen to complete the driver experience by providing VW branded stations to all e-Golf dealerships and access to the largest network of public EV charging stations.

Bosch will provide a suite of 240-volt charging options, including the Power Max charging station, as well as full-service installation for e-Golf drivers. The charging station and installation will be offered at highly competitive prices.

A Bosch Vehicle Charging Advisor will support customers through the entire installation process, including:

No-cost, on-site quotation
Local permit application, coordination, and inspection
Installation completed by a Bosch Certified Electrician

All Volkswagen e-Golf owners will be given automatic access to the ChargePoint network, the largest in the world with more than 18,000 charging locations. Every e-Golf will come with a ChargePoint membership card in the car at no additional cost, giving owners far greater opportunities to charge their cars while on the go. About 60% of stations on the ChargePoint network are free to use and drivers can start a session with their ChargePoint card, the ChargePoint mobile app or by calling the support line listed on the station.

In addition, all Volkswagen e-Golf dealerships will have the latest generation ChargePoint stations with VW branding, installed by Bosch. The stations will be available for public use and dealers will use them to walk prospective buyers through EV charging. All e-Golf drivers will also get access to the ChargePoint mobile app, where they can navigate to stations, see real-time status updates (to see if the station is in use, available or down) and start charging sessions.
