American consumer's appetite for eco-friendly cars is increasing, and perfectly meeting this demand is Volkswagen's first fully electric vehicle in the U.S. — the VW e-Golf. Joining the burgeoning Golf family of versatile and sporty hatchbacks, the 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf in Orange County CA brings the benefits of an electric powertrain to the Golf’s fun-to-drive and practical formula — defeating the idea that compact EVs are bland and only about efficiency. Come check out the 2017 e-Golf at Capistrano Volkswagen!
When you get behind the wheel of the 2017 e-Golf, you'll almost forget that it's an electric car. Its electric motor delivers 214 lb-ft of torque, with instant responsiveness for quick acceleration. The e-Golf offers three modes to cater to your driving preferences — Normal/Eco/Eco+ — as well as three regenerative braking models. Charging your e-Golf is easy, whether at home with an available 240V wall box, at any ChargePoint or public charging station or at select VW dealerships. With a full charge, the e-Golf gets a range of up to 125 miles. Every mile in an e-Golf is a zero-tailpipe-emissions mile. Volkswagen works with 3Degrees to invest in carbon-reduction programs to help offset carbon emissions for the production, distribution and use of the e-Golf, further enhancing the e-Golf's eco-friendly credentials.

The 2017 e-Golf shares much of the same stylish design of the Golf family, which means it has the same sharpened lines and dynamic proportions as the other seventh-generation models. However, the e-Golf distinguishes itself by several unique features. This includes the energy-efficient LED headlights on the SEL Premium model — the very first application of this technology on any Volkswagen vehicle in the United States. These lights 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 2017 e-Golf's driving experience and level of safety are enhanced by its available driver assistance features. The Forward Collision Warning system has sensors in the front to help monitor traffic and can alert you to a potential collision. If a collision is imminent, Autonomous Emergency Braking can help brake the car. Park Distance Control has sensors that can help you back out of or drive into a parking spot. Audible signals and the optical parking system on the display indicate how much space you have behind and, on some vehicles, in front of the vehicle when parking. In the event you get too close, an alert sounds as a warning. If you live in San Juan Capistrano, Huntington Beach, Anaheim, Irvine or anywhere else in Orange County and would like to get behind the wheel of the 2017 e-Golf, then feel free to get in touch with us at Capistrano Volkswagen!
