VW’s 3.0 ID. software update improves quick charge time by nine minutes

VW is preparing a software update for its ID. series electric cars that increases peak charging speed from 125kW to 135kW on the largest 77kWh battery.

The 3.0 software also includes improvements to navigation, voice control, and driver assistance.

While 10kW might sound like a minor improvement (only 8%), it actually cuts charge time from 38 minutes to 29 minutes for a 5–80% charge. The reason for this is a significant shift in charge curve and a slower taper.

Batteries typically charge fastest when they are close to empty, and charging needs to slow down as the battery gets fuller.

Audi increases range of older e-tron electric SUVs with software update

Audi announced a new software update that is going to increase the range of older e-tron electric SUVs by boosting efficiency.

Several legacy automakers venturing into electric vehicles ended up having big battery “buffers” on their first electric vehicles.

A battery buffer is the difference between the net energy capacity of the battery and its usable capacity.

They were worried about battery safety and degradation, but many were overly cautious and ended up hurting their vehicle’s efficiency by having it carry a battery pack with a big part it can’t use.

Audi was one of them, and it’s starting to
