Happy owner of a blue ID.4 FE
They likely did. cheap out. However, this omission spurred me to buy a higher power MUSTART Travelmate unit and three connector extensions, 14-50, 10-30, and 5-15. This allows me to charge at up to 40A at home and some other places, 24A at many relatives, and level 1 in a full on emergency. At home the unit will be in a holder on the wall and the cable wrapped and stored much like a wall unit. On road trips it will live in the back of the car. I doubt the Audi unit had this high amperage rating.So it's an emergency charger? That's fine, but that could still be accomplished with a combo charger, like the Audi one. Plenty of EV's come with combo chargers, like my friend's Leaf, so it feels like VW was cutting corners there. It doesn't make sense that my two Audi PHEV's will have come with a better charger than my ID.4.
