Like most electric vehicles the e-Golf comes with a trickle charger, a domestic friendly plug socket that will recharge the e-Golf overnight which is the most commonly used method of recharging. Alternatively, you can take advantage of the ever-growing fast stations which provide 80% battery charge in just over 30 minutes.
Like every Volkswagen Golf it is characterised by its popularity, polished interior and exterior design, innovative technology and high-quality engineering. Only now you can forget the petrol bills. The exterior is familiar, with added e-design features such as low power consuming LED lights, blue design elements and 16 inch aerodynamic alloy wheels. It’s obvious the e-Golf focuses on minimising its carbon footprint in style.
We put the e-Golf to the challenge with the New Zealand Automobile Association (AA), to see how far the e-Golf could travel in real-world conditions. The results: with two people in the vehicle, normal road conditions and air-conditioning on, the e-Golf traveled from Auckland CBD to Tokoroa – an impressive distance of 220km.
