The extremely popular and widely acclaimed Golf is now available in smooth-driving electric form. While ideal for the stop-start nature of urban driving, the E-Golf’s 190-kilometre range means that it can also handle long hauls.
The five-door E-Golf is available with a Urano Grey paint scheme as standard. A range of colours such as Pure White, Deep Black and Pacific Blue can be selected as options. A striking front fascia features a black radiator grille, trimmed with chrome, and the vehicle’s flanks are adorned with 16-inch alloy wheels. Also featured as standard are a rear roof spoiler and colour-keyed components that include bumpers, door handles and door mirrors. The latter are power-adjustable and heated and are fitted with indicator lights. Further illumination includes automatic LED headlights, LED tail lights and a high-level brake light.
Front-row occupants are treated to height-adjustable and lumbar-supporting seating, and the driver further benefits from a height-and-reach-adjustable steering wheel. The latter is leather-trimmed, as is the vehicle’s gear lever, and both are enhanced with smart blue stitching. Other standard features include power-assisted steering, adaptive cruise control, an electronic parking brake, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, electric front windows and two-zone electronic air conditioning. Luggage capacity starts at 341 litres (seats up) and increases to 1,231 litres (seats folded).
An 84kW battery electric engine produces zero emissions and negates the need to ever queue up at the petrol station again. The E-Golf is capable of 0-100km/h in a shade under 11 seconds (0-80km/h in approximately 8.8 seconds) and a top speed of 140km/h. The vehicle comes with electronic differential lock, a start/stop system and battery regeneration as standard. It also features a DC Fast Charger, ensuring that charging time takes no longer than eight hours.
A Discover Pro infotainment system comes with a voice-activated eight-inch colour touchscreen, providing access to a CD player, an FM/AM radio, a 64GB hard drive and navigation functionality. Bluetooth connectivity is included as standard too.
Awarded a five-star rating by Euro NCAP, the E-Golf’s driver aids include front and rear parking sensors, tyre pressure indicators, Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System and Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. Passive safety elements such as whiplash-minimising front head restraints, multiple airbags, ISOFIX mountings and childproof locks are also featured.
