Volkswagen's Golf hatchback is one of the German firm's most popular models, and with the introduction of the all-electric e-Golf the hatchback appeals to an even broader audience. It is now cleaner and more efficient than ever, while still remaining exciting to drive and highly practical.
The model is unmistakably a member of the Golf family as its styling shows, with only a few subtle details distinguishing the e-Golf from the rest. Redesigned LED headlights, a closed-off black grille, new front bumper and unique 16-inch alloy wheels are all reserved just for this example. There are chrome trimmed inserts for the front, body-coloured bumpers and a sporty black diffuser too, for a look that is eye-catching and modern.
Inside, the spacious cabin greets the driver with white instrument panel lighting, brushed dark silver decorative inserts, and durable grey cloth upholstery. Vienna leather upholstery can be added as an option if preferred to complement the elegant chrome air vent surrounds. With a 341-litre boot you never need to pack light, and the rear bench splits to increase this capacity.

In typical Volkswagen style, the e-Golf boasts an impressive equipment list featuring a variety of leading technology. The Discover Pro satellite navigation/radio systems bring an eight-inch colour touchscreen to the dashboard which you can control through voice commands. Meanwhile, Car-Net makes electric vehicle ownership much simpler by allowing you to link the vehicle to your smartphone and access a variety of functions remotely, such as battery management or interior temperature control. You also benefit from Bluetooth ® telephone connection to take calls hands-free and therefore legally.
Power is delivered by a 113bhp BEV engine which also creates 270Nm of torque to accelerate confidently from 0-60mph in approximately 10.4 seconds. A range of up to 118 miles is ample for everyday drives and plenty for a longer on-road adventure, during which the vehicle emits zero CO 2. Sophisticated brake energy recuperation helps the drive system offer such an impressive range by recycling energy usually lost when slowing and it’s just one more example of Volkswagen ingenuity.
Driving is safe in the e-Golf as well for that bit more satisfaction at the wheel. The Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system includes Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) and Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) for excellent road holding, while Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) keeps the car stable during an emergency manoeuvre. The driver alert system warns you if it thinks you are tired and, like pre-crash preventive occupant protection, it's a standard addition.
