Pros

Model Highlights

Volkswagen e-Golfs come in two trims. A base SE and an uplevel SEL Premium trim. The e-Golf is based on Volkswagen's 4-door Golf model, making it more practical than most other electric cars.

The base SE e-Golf comes very well-equipped with LED daytime running lights, a rear lip spoiler, heated front seats, a rearview camera, dual-zone climate control and heated power-adjustable rearview mirrors.

Standard safety features include stability control, anti-lock brakes parking sensors, a backup camera and a low-tire pressure warning system.

The SEL Premium trim adds 16-inch "Astona" low-drag alloy wheels, LED headlights with dynamic range adjustment, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leatherette interior and cruise control.

Inside, the e-Golf maintains the conventional Golf's stylish and upscale interior and despite the presence of massive battery packs under the floor, the cargo area is just as big as on the conventionally powered Golf.

The powertrain consists of a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and a permanent-magent AC motor that can produce 115 horsepower and 199 lb-feet of torque. A single-speed transmission puts the power to the front wheels.

A 240-volt dedicated in-home charger can recharge the battery in 4 hours. Using household 120-volt current takes 20 hours. The range, while quite variable depending on driving style and terrain, is estimated from 85-100 miles. The e-Golf offers three selectable driving modes-- Normal, Eco and Eco+, which vary regenerative braking and throttle response to either maximize power or range.

The Volkswagen e-Golf is a solid competitor in the emerging field of electric-powered cars. It offers the practicality and usability of the highly regarded conventional Golf model paired with fast charging capability and a well-equipped feature set.


Model News

The e-Golf carries into 2016 with very few changes. The price of entry got a bit lower with a new entry-level SE base trim. All e-Golfs now come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. SEL e-Golfs now include with collision prevention and park-assist technologies.


Value Writeup

Even in base Limited Edition trim, the e-Golf comes quite well-equipped. Compared to other electric cars, such as the FIAT 500e, the BMW i3 and the popular Nissan LEAF, the e-Golf offers 4-door practicality as well as a lengthy standard equipment list that includes LED headlamps, heated front seats, parking sensors and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The e-Golf boasts a recharge time of only 4 hours and a range of up to 100 miles. Pricing is competitive with the FIAT and Nissan at around $29,000.

Volkswagen has notified owners, and dealers will update the battery management software, free of charge. The recall began March 15, 2016. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Volkswagen's number for this recall is 93B4.

Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2017 Audi A7, A4, A6, Volkswagen Golf and Tiguan vehicles and 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf vehicles for driver frontal air bags, passenger frontal air bags or head air bags that may not deploy properly. Additionally, certain 2017 Audi Q7, A4 Sedan, A4 Allroad, and 2018 Audi Q5 vehicles are being recalled because the seat belt pretensioners may not activate properly.

Volkswagen and Audi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected air bags and seat belt pretensioners, free of charge.
