How does instant performance, superior refinement, zero emissions and ultra-low running costs sound? Sounds dreamy. The new Volkswagen e-Golf makes it a reality. This innovative Golf offers a glimpse into the future of motoring, with an electric powerplant with an impressive range of 144 miles and a battery pack that charges from 0 to 80% in 45 minutes at a 100kWh station. It has the same quality you expect from a Golf, only it’s simpler, cleaner and more brilliant to drive. It’s everything you want in an everyday car and it’s loaded to the hilt, with features like LED headlights, a heated windscreen and 12.3” Active Info Display. Total comfort, total style. There’s no compromises here.
The e-Golf perfectly combines comfort, style and technology. It stands out with a unique LED daytime running light bar across its front grille, LED headlights, lightweight alloy wheels and exclusive upholstery with electric blue stitching on the leather steering wheel.
Plant your right foot and the e-Golf picks up like no other. Maximum torque of 290Nm is available instantly, from any speed, for safe overtaking and nippy manoeuvres. The running costs are around 4p per mile, versus 14p with a petrol engine.
This is the Golf you know and love, which means ample space for five passengers, ample space for two ISOFIX child seats across the back row and decent boot space - the e-Golf’s boot is 341-litres, or 1,231-litres with the rear seats folded.
Living with it
With the ability to run for 144 miles on a charge and charge from 0-80% in 45 minutes, range anxiety is a thing of the past. Superior refinement and low running costs make the e-Golf a pleasure, while features like a heated windscreen make life easier.
