The Volkswagen Golf has delighted droves of satisfied owners with its superb driving characteristics, refined interior and versatile hatchback design, and with the introduction of the e-Golf, consumers can enjoy all those great qualities, plus the benefits of an eco-friendly electric drivetrain. Possessing impressive range, optimized battery charging equipment and a very quiet ride, the 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf in Orange County CA stands out in the growing crowd of electric vehicles. Whether you're from Huntington Beach, Anaheim, Irvine, San Juan Capistrano or anywhere else in Orange Country, we're confident you'll be impressed with the outstanding 2016 e-Golf.
The 2016 e-Golf shares the majority of the visually attractive exterior design qualities with the rest of the Golf family, including the same sharpened lines and dynamic proportions as other Golf models. However, a notable difference is the energy-efficient LED headlights on the SEL Premium model, which offer greater illumination than traditional Bi-Xenon units, yet use less energy doing so. These LED clusters are complemented by C-shaped LED daytime running light strips in the bumper below. Other clues that this is an all-electric VW are the unique badges and blue accents, as well as the obvious lack of any tailpipes at the rear.
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.
