Volkswagen e-Golf

Volkswagen e-Golf

The Volkswagen e-Golf is a 5-door compact family hatchback. It is a part of the Golf lineup from Volkswagen, a segment of cars that consists of various compact family sedans, hatchbacks, and crossovers. It is the longest-running nameplate from the German automaker that went for sale for the first time in 1974. The e-Golf was announced in 2011 under the Golf Blue e-motion name, and the first production car was showcased at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was offered for sale in the U.S. from 2014 to 2020 and was received warmly as a low-cost electric alternative to gas-fired cars. The e-Golf is not being offered anymore, but you can still buy a used unit.
Is Volkswagen e-Golf the right car for you?

Power and Range

The e-Golf comes with a 35.8kWh battery and a 134hp powertrain. The battery, though seemingly small, gives the E.V. a range of 125 miles on a single charge. That is enough electric driving for getting around town and for short intercity hops.

Charging Time

While the small battery on the e-Golf might not promise much range, this unit aces in the charging time area. The e-Golf can be charged from a 120V or a 240V A.C. outlet. It will fill up in 26 hours on a 120V connection and in just 6 hours with a 240V A.C. power source. The car also supports D.C. fast charging, and you can charge it to 80% at any D.C. fast-charging station in under an hour.


The interior is another area where the e-Golf excels. It offers features like leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and partially power-adjustable seats. The rest of the interior is also nice and roomy, and the overall quality of the materials used in this car is better than other models at the same price. Being a hatchback adds to the car's practicality by offering you a massive 22.8 cubic feet cargo area.
