New 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf Exterior

2016 Volkswagen e-Golf Overview (See Available Styles)

Volkswagen joined the growing list of automakers offering all-electric cars with the debut of the e-Golf last year. Based on the Golf four-door hatchback, the e-Golf has an EPA-estimated range of 83 miles.

What's Special
  • New value-oriented SE trim level
  • Unique grille with blue accents
  • Touch-screen that offers a deeper look at the electric powertrain's operation
  • 115-horsepower electric motor
  • Lithium-ion battery pack that's located in the floor under the seats
  • Available 7.2-kilowatt onboard charger can replenish the battery in less than four hours
  • Three regenerative-braking programs
Here's info on the regular Golf:
The Volkswagen Golf is available as a two- or four-door hatchback, or as a wagon. Power comes from a gas or diesel four-cylinder engine, and the five-seat Golf competes with the Mazda3 hatchback, Hyundai Elantra GT and Mini Cooper. Volkswagen's performance-oriented Golf GTI and Golf R are related, as is the e-Golf electric car.

New for 2016
A newly available multimedia system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring on the car's dashboard screen. The S trim level gains a backup camera while the SE adds keyless access with push-button start.

A Driver Assistance Package for SE and SEL trim levels includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with autonomous braking, lane departure warning, a blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert, and automated parallel and perpendicular parking.
