If you’re looking for information on a newer Volkswagen e-Golf, we’ve published an updated review: 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf Review
The hybrid- and electric-car movement is real. Everybody wants to save, and the 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf wants in on the party. Here are five reasons why the electric e-Golf will save you money and turn heads while doing so.
Volkswagen didn’t compromise on style with the e-Golf; it looks just as good as any Golf. Of course, standard 16-inch alloy wheels help, and the shuttered grille sets it slightly apart from the regular gas-powered Golf. Unlike with some competitors, you can now look good while going electric.
To say the standard features list on the e-Golf is long and impressive would be an understatement. LED running lights, dual-zone climate control and heated front seats are just a few of the included items. The SEL Premium trim level has some nice additions as well, such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a bigger 8-in touchscreen. See the 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf models for sale near you
Tech to Match
Driving electric almost feels futuristic, so you have to have top technology to complement that. The e-Golf’s 6.5-in touchscreen has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, keeping you connected to your smartphone while you’re on the road. And with the VW Car-Net app, you can check your battery level and even activate it to start charging.
We kind of have to mention the fact that the e-Golf sees about 83 miles per charge. Of course, that range varies depending on driving dynamics, but there are selectable modes that help extend range. All in all, starting under $29,000 and with zero emissions, the e-Golf is an affordable way to get into the future of driving.
The clever Volkswagen design team deserves serious credit for the placement of the battery in the e-Golf. The vehicle offers a generous 52.7 cu ft. of cargo space with the rear seats folded flat. The setup doesn’t compromise any space, so it’s just like driving any other Golf, except you won’t need a gas station.
More and more drivers are jumping at the chance to go electric. Why not look good and save money at the same time? Get away from the gas pump, and get to your VW dealer to check out the 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf. Find a Volkswagen e-Golf for sale
