What is the Volkswagen e-Golf?

The Volkswagen Golf is one of the most recognisable cars on British roads today. Having sat firmly at the heart of UK driving culture since the 1970s, it has long been a mainstay on the hatchback market. It has won numerous awards, and as of 2019 has sold more than 35 million units worldwide.

The Golf has gone through many iterations; the Mk1 was launched in 1974, and since then there have been eight different generations, and many of these have also had their own facelifts. Launched on the UK market in 2013, the Mk7 remains a popular car today, and it is this iteration that the e-Golf belongs to.

The Volkswagen e-Golf adapts what is one of the UK’s most popular cars into a bespoke electric vehicle. It retains the same kerb appeal as its non-electric counterparts, while adding the substantial benefit of zero emissions to its credentials. The e-Golf has good acceleration and power, meaning drivers seeking speed won’t be disappointed. Great for urban driving, thanks to its emissions-free power and compact nature, the e-Golf is a direct competitor of the likes of the BMW i3, Nissan Leaf and Hyundai Kona Electric.

Volkswagen e-Golf history

While the e-Golf was a groundbreaking development, it was by no means Volkswagen’s first step into the world of electric vehicles. The first all-electric Volkswagen was the T2 Camper, also known as the Elektro-Transporter, which went on sale to the public with a small run in the late seventies after spending most of the decade in production. At this time, it was marketed with the slogan, ‘Zero litres per 100 kilometres!’. In the same year, development on a prototype for the first electric Golf began.

The first commercially viable electric Golf, the Golf CitySTROMer, went through numerous iterations over the next two decades, before the Golf III CitySTROMer was finally produced for public purchase between 1992 and 1996. It remains an important part of Volkswagen’s electric vehicle history, and according to Volkswagen there are as many as 50 units still on the roads today.

The e-Golf followed decades of innovation from its manufacturer in the electric vehicle space and was launched in the UK in 2014. Its single power option offers 115bhp and a top speed of 93mph. Its torque of 290Nm delivers an impressive 0-62mph acceleration time of 9.6 seconds.

As a member of the Golf family, while wielding the added benefit of fully electric capabilities, the e-Golf’s style and substance set it apart in the EV hatch market until it ceased production in 2020. As a used car, it remains highly popular for urban drivers seeking to reduce their emissions. Its range of 119 miles can be maximised with three different driving modes – Normal, Eco and Eco+ – so the e-Golf can ensure efficiency across all driving environments.

Where does the Volkswagen e-Golf sit in the range?

Thanks to its EV credentials, the Volkswagen e-Golf is a premium option in the Golf range. The range of trims across the Golf range is enormous, even just on the Mk7. They range from the entry-level S and lower-level Match and GT to higher level trims like GTI and GTD, as well as the range-topping GTE.

Along with its desirable EV capabilities, the e-Golf contains a wealth of additional features and design touches that set it apart as a higher-level trim.

What features and equipment does the Volkswagen e-Golf have?

The Volkswagen Golf Mk7 is an eye-catching vehicle thanks to its sporty styling. To set it apart, the e-Golf builds on these features with numerous unique additions. It adds C-shaped running lamps, and it’s the first of the Mk7 range – and is the first Volkswagen vehicle – to add LED headlights. It also adds characterful blue strips to the grille, and the same blue colouring to the VW badge. The bumpers are also re-designed for the e-Golf and an additional spoiler is featured for added style.

Inside, the characterful blue styling is also present. There’s blue stitching on both the steering wheel and the gear stick, a subtle nod to the unique colour scheme of the e-Golf. There’s also a wealth of features that create a premium feel throughout the cabin. The eight-inch infotainment system includes an in-built sat nav system, and this cleverly indicates to drivers where the nearest charge points are, while also showing a range display.

The e-Golf also includes a wide variety of driver assist features. Adaptive cruise control and city emergency braking mean both motorway and urban driving are made easier, while front and rear parking sensors are an essential addition. Automatic headlights and wipers optimise visibility in even the most challenging conditions, helped further by an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.
