Volkswagen e-Golf is a worthy competitor to gasoline versions. The car was created on the basis of the well-known Golf of the seventh generation. The electric Golf is a five-door hatchback of the C class. The new model combines a compact body and a spacious interior, a classic design and an affordable price. Such characteristics allow Volkswagen to compete with electric cars from other manufacturers.

Electric car design

The exterior of the car has several features that distinguish the electric car from other models. The slightly modified bumper is complemented by fog lights in the form of the letter C, which are connected by a solid line. The main light is represented by LED headlights. The overall picture is complemented by small plates with logos on the front and back, as well as a blue line on the radiator grille. The overall picture is complemented by futuristic light alloy wheels. At the stern, attention is drawn to the absence of an exhaust pipe and the restrained shape of the LED marker lights.

Thanks to the MQB platform and the use of the battery, it was possible to free up enough space for the legs in the car’s cabin, as well as for the luggage compartment.

Specifications

An electric motor with a capacity of 136 horsepower is installed under the hood of the car. The battery is fully charged in 5 hours from a 380V network. The battery capacity is 35.8 kWh. The electric car accelerates to 100 km/h in 10.4 seconds. The maximum speed indicator reaches 140 km/h. Without recharging, the car can cover 240-280 km. The distance depends on the season, the use of the air conditioning system, the time of day and the difficulty of the route. The manufacturer provided three driving modes, which allows you to choose individually taking into account economy and power reserve.

The wheelbase of the car is 2.6 m. The ground clearance reaches 12.7 cm and makes the car comfortable and maneuverable for urban locations.

Features

Volkswagen e-Golf has a discreet and spacious interior. On the instrument panel, instead of a traditional tachometer, the electricity consumption indicator attracts attention.
