Volkswagen Opens Order Book For Electric GolfWed, 12 Mar 2014
FOLLOWING on from the recent launch of its electric up!, Volkswagen has announced details of its next new eco-themed model, the e-Golf.
Like with its city car, Volkswagen is adopting the policy of using a conventional car as the basis for its electric power Golf.
The German car maker is claiming a range of 118 miles after a full charge, while top speed is an acceptable 87mph and the zero to 62mph sprint takes a brisk 10.4 seconds.
And just like the electric up!, the e-Golf can be charged overnight from a domestic power outlet or via a professionally installed wallbox in as little as eight hours. A suitable DC supply can charge the car to 80 percent in just 35 minutes.
Order books are open now at 24 specialist Volkswagen dealers ahead of June deliveries, with the car priced at £25,845 on the road (including £5,000 Government grant) or £30,845 without.
UK spec for the five-door only model is comparable with SE specification, with the addition of two-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors and satellite navigation, with an eight-inch colour touchscreen.
