With the 2018 Volkswagen e-Golf, you get the pleasing characteristics of the iconic VW Golf, such as its fun-to-drive nature, hatchback versatility, and upscale design, along with an added benefit. It comes equipped with an all-electric powertrain, resulting in high-level efficiency and emissions-free driving. Here at Capistrano Volkswagen, we invite eco-minded compact hatchback shoppers in the San Juan Capistrano-area to check out the 2018 VW e-Golf!
The powertrain of the 2018 VW e-Golf consists of a synchronous permanent-magnet alternating current (AC) motor and a lithium-ion battery. The estimated efficiency rating of the e-Golf is 126 city/111 hwy MPGe (miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent). The total estimated range is 125 miles. This is much higher than the average daily commuting distance for Americans, so it’s likely that most of the time you’ll never have to worry about charging the e-Golf outside of your home. However, if you need to charge the e-Golf while on the go, it can reach an 80% charge within an hour when charged at a DC fast charging station. Electromobility doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the performance, for the e-Golf generates an output of 214 lb-ft of torque, resulting in fast acceleration.
Inside the 2018 VW e-Golf, the cabin has an upscale design with a liberal use of high-quality materials and a plethora of premium features, including a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel and heated front seats. The new e-Golf also offers many multimedia features, including the MIB II infotainment system, Apple Car Play and Android Auto smartphone integration, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, and HD Radio.
The cabin of the VW e-Golf is very quiet. In addition to the quietness of the electric motor (compared to a gasoline-powered engine), this can be credited to the sound-absorbent insulation materials. Despite its compact size, the e-Golf offers a generous total cargo capacity of 52.7 cu-ft, while the 60/40 split-fold rear seats provide a great deal of cargo flexibility.
