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.
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.
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
The e-Golf's highly efficient LED headlights use far less energy than conventional headlights, with no compromise on brightness.
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.
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.
Exceptional comfort for an exceptional car
High-spec technology. Total comfort.
The e-Golf provides for comfort, convenience and style. The cabin is climate controlled and the fully adjustable front seats offer lumber support as standard. Also available in leather.
The e-Golf's Car Net Mirrorlink system makes your Android and Apple entertainment apps available on your dashboard, while the Active Info Display delivers navigation instructions in the driver's eyeline, directly behind the steering wheel.

**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.
