What Car? review

“The Golf succeeds because it works brilliantly as an electric car yet it doesn’t compromise on practicality, equipment, or driving dynamics.” 

Honest John's e-Golf review 

An all-electric Golf. Eco nirvana, right? Yes, actually. In more ways than one. Mark shows you why. Want some more car-based advice? Go to HonestJohn.co.uk.

We put it to the people

The only way to truly experience the thrill of electric is to drive the e-Golf. So we invited some first-timers to do just that. 

How does the e-Golf compare?

e-Golf quote

e-Golf makes a buzz.

But only in the motoring press. Volkswagen’s new pure electric hatchback has been receiving the sort of reviews you might expect for a Volkswagen.

e-Golf

Easy as 1, 2, 3.

The e-Golf is much simpler to maintain than a petrol or diesel car. There are just three components in the entire drivetrain and far fewer moving parts. Electric servicing is already available at all Volkswagen retailers.

e-Golf

0-80% in 45 mins.

That’s how long it takes to charge your new e-Golf using a rapid charger. And unlike petrol and diesel cars, you don’t have to be there while it fills up, so you can go and do something more interesting instead.

e-Golf charging

Charging everywhere

ZapMaps recently confirmed there are now more charging stations in the UK than filling stations. Charging your e-Golf will be like charging your smartphone. Just plug in to top up your charge wherever you are. Easy.

Fill up for a fiver.

This is how much it costs to fill up your new e-Golf, all the way from empty to full. (Home charging based on a typical cost of 14p/KWh.)

e-Golf

London to Brighton.
And back.

This is how far you can go without recharging your new e-Golf. That’s one charge every 5 days for the average driver doing 25 miles a day. (144 miles WLTP tested range.)

e-Golf

Cleaner getaway.

Your new e-Golf doesn’t produce tailpipe emissions. In fact, it doesn’t even have a tailpipe.

e-Golf

The wait is over.

Unlike petrol and diesel, there’s no lag between pressing the accelerator of your new e-Golf and actually accelerating. Experience the thrill of electric. Drive the e-Golf.

Take a closer look at the e-Golf

The Golf constantly evolves to bring you the latest in driving technology, but its uncompromising standards always remain the same.

Exterior

The e-Golf retains the classic styling of the Golf, with its own electric twist. LED headlights, C-shaped running lights and signature blue flash across the front grille.

Interior

The surprisingly spacious interior of the e-Golf combines style, practicality and comfort with unique touches like the electric blue stitching on the leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Forward thinking design

Lights

The e-Golf's highly efficient LED headlights use far less energy than conventional headlights, with no compromise on brightness.

Aerodynamic alloys

The 16-inch ‘Tileve’ alloy wheels have been specially built to be extra-aerodynamic. The reduced drag means they actually help the car save energy.

Driver Assistance

The e-Golf features the full suite of Volkswagen driver assistance, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Assist, Blind Spot Sensor, Park Assist, Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist to bring the car to a controlled stop if you are unable to.

**The stated values were obtained using the legally required measurement procedure. The information does not refer to a particular individual vehicle and does not constitute part of the offer. It merely provides a basis for comparing the different types of vehicle. The fuel/energy consumption and CO₂ emissions of a vehicle not only depend on the efficient use of the fuel/energy from the battery by the vehicle itself, but also on driver behaviour and other non-technical factors such as environmental conditions

**The actual range achieved in realistic conditions differs from this result during normal driving operation and amounts to approx. 124 miles on average annually and is dependent on driving style, speed, use of comfort features or auxiliary equipment, ambient temperature, number of passengers/load, choice of driving profile (Normal, ECO, ECO+), and terrain.
