All the We Charge charging points can be located via Volkswagen's We Connect ID. app. The app also provides information on charging price and charging point availability. It further gives users the option to only show charging points that operate on green power. The We Charge service also provides users of ID. Charger with additional online services such as charging statistics, access management or remote control.

Volkswagen says that it plans to launch some 75 new electric models throughout the group in the next ten years. "As e-mobility increasingly takes to the road, public charging is becoming ever more important," explains Richard van Tatenhove, Head of Digital Charging Services at Volkswagen. Thus, the company's We Charge service becomes a complete package for convenient and sustainable charging of electric vehicles.
