EVchip for e-Golf/e-Up is a range extender controlling load applied to engine via throttle control. No problems with warranty – undetectable by dealer. It is easy to install, as it uses factory plugs. It delivers following extensions to standardVW e-Golf/e-Up:
- range extender – it bases on adding „N-mode on demand” (aka glide mode) to D-mode, along with alternative torque delivery strategy (read below). Range extension is around 10% (ECO mode, 24kWh/30kWh battery). With normal mode EVchip for e-Golf/e-Up is off.
- mimic of some functions of “e-pedal” from new VW e-Golf/e-Up 2018 is possible.
- regenerative force at D mode can be increased by about 20% (from 20kW to 24kW). If you have version of EVchip for e-Golf/e-Up with B mode – lucky you. But I can have B-mode even in the basic version of e-Golf/e-Up.
- max power of VW e-Golf/e-Upcan be increased from 80kW to 83kW (option).
