Elli is a subsidiary in the Volkswagen Group and a provider of energy and charging solutions. We and our customers have been eagerly awaiting the market launch of the first wallboxes. At the beginning of September 2020, the first ID.Chargers were delivered to company car owners in the Wolfsburg area. CUBOS was there from the very beginning. We don’t know whether we commissioned the very first “Elli”, but definitely one of the first.
The ID.Charger always has a permanently attached cable with a type 2 plug and a maximum charging power of 11 kW.all info on elli.eco
FAQ about the Elli
Based on our customer contacts and our practical experience, we have compiled the most important points about the ID.Charger here. Incidentally, the SEAT Charger and CUPRA Charger - also available via elli.eco - are identical in design and price.
The information is checked and updated regularly, most recently on 06.11.2020.
CUBOS is not Elli. Therefore, we cannot make any binding statements about the availability of the ID.Charger. Delivery times of three to four weeks are currently estimated for all models. This also applies to the SEAT Charger and CUPRA Charger. The date of delivery start of the SKODA Charger is still unknown.
According to the Elli Website, the Connect and Pro models will be eligible for funding in accordance with KFW funding guideline 440. Installations will therefore be subsidised with 900 euros per charging point, provided the conditions are met.
The same applies in the SEAT / CUPRA Shop by Elli. Connect and Pro are eligible for subsidies.
For those who want to opt for the low-priced basic model, it is already clear today: this is not eligible for subsidies. Therefore, you do not have to wait for 24 November.
Currently, the app control of the ID.Charger is not yet available. This should change by the end of the year at the latest.
However, the recognition of an ID.Charger in the Volkswagen app We Charge already works.
The ID.Chargers are always delivered with a permanently attached cable with a type 2 plug. Optionally, the standard cable length of 4.5 metres can be extended to 7.5 metres.
The housing serves as the cable holder. The cable is looped around the wallbox when not in use.
The connection cable can be fed into the wallbox from above or below.
1-phase, 230 V, 32 A, 50 Hz.
3-phase, 400 V, 16 A, 50 Hz.
7.4 kW (1-phase - 32 A)
11 kW (3-phase - 16 A)
The maximum cable cross-section for the supply line is 5x 6 mm² - but we do not use less.
Fuse protection on the installation side
- Residual current circuit breaker min. type A (30 mA AC)
- Circuit breaker 16 A (3 phase)
Residual current monitoring
IΔn AC ≥ 30 mA, IΔn DC ≥ 6 mA
Dimensions (WxHxD in mm)
297 x 406 x 116 - this is approximately DIN A3
Weight 5.6 kg - 7 kg - depending on equipment and cable length
The basic version of the ID.Charger cannot be protected against unauthorised use because it cannot be unlocked via an app or RFID, nor via a mechanical key or similar.
The Connect variant offers activation via RFID and individual control for each vehicle via an app.
With the additional integrated electricity meter, the Pro variant offers, at least theoretically, the possibility of documenting consumption in such a way that it can be settled with one’s employer and/or the tax office. Keyword: company car.
The ID.Charger can be used to charge electric cars of various brands that are equipped with a type 2 plug. The charging power is a maximum of 7.4 kW for single-phase charging - for example on the e-Golf or e-up! and a maximum of 11 kW for three-phase charging.
Wallboxes with a charging capacity of up to 11 kW must be registered with the responsible energy supplier, but are not subject to any approval requirements. CUBOS will take care of the application and registration for you during installation.
