The other 5% mentioned in the article is that when they were designing the car, they anticipated that it would be recharged 95% of the time at home and only 5% of the time on the go.Like @fireboy92k I appreciated the ID4 charging news (Google translation slightly improved for better legibility):
The average charging time for VW ID vehicles on the fast charger is currently 30 minutes. And during that time only 30 kWh of electricity are drawn - because the charging point is activated too early.
“They don't come to the column with 5 percent SoC, but often at 20 percent” - and then don't experience the full charging capacity. With the new software version ID.3.0 for the ID.5 and all other VW EVs on the MEB platform, the charging curve has therefore been adjusted: the full charging power is available longer, which shortens the charging time by nine minutes."
