The 2016 e-Golf possesses a refined, spacious and versatile interior. Also, without the noise and vibration from a combustion engine, its cabin is very quiet. Additionally, due to its clever battery design, the e-Golf has 52.7 cu-ft of cargo space when the rear seats are folded down, which makes it easy for packing up for long trips.
You can charge your e-Golf at home with an available 240V wall box, at any of the 22,000+ nationwide ChargePoint locations or at select VW dealerships. Charging is easy. Just plug the e-Golf in and power up for an estimated 83 miles of driving range.
The smartphone app for VW Car-Net lets you turn on your air-conditioning or heat on your e-Golf from afar, check the battery level and even activate charging from your compatible smartphone. Additional tech features include the innovative MIB II infotainment system, a review camera and a new Driver Assistance Package.
While the 2016 e-Golf looks like a Golf and drives like one too, it diverts from the standard Golf with its technologically advanced electric drivetrain. The compact electric motor sends its power to the front wheels via a single-speed EQ270 transmission. Providing power for the e-Golf electric motor is a lithium-ion battery resting in the center tunnel just ahead of the rear axle and below the rear seats. The e-Golf gets an incredible 126 city/105 hwy MPGe rating and far surpasses many other EVs in its class with an estimated 83 miles per charge, which helps alleviate "range anxiety."
The 2016 e-Golf is perfect for those who desire the time-tested quality of critically acclaimed compact car, but with the benefit of not having to spend money at the gas pump, while also being friendly to the environmental. And with a $7,500 Federal Tax Credit for the purchase of electric vehicles, the 2016 e-Golf can be yours for as low as $21,495.
