About the e-Golf

Volkswagen are going all-in on electric vehicles. The company has announced a whole new family of electric vehicles,that will probably include a new campervan and possibly a dune buggy. This means we will may see the trusty Golf disappear of the next 5/10 years. 

E-Golf is tradition and future technology blended, it’s the trusty Golf you’re used to but with an electric motor powering you along instead. Volkswagen are the largest producer of cars in the world and you can feel that in everything they build. The quality and sturdiness of everything is always so high and everything feels really tight.

Volkswagen means “people’s car”. It is never going to be the fastest, it is never going to be the most luxurious, but it is super reliable and dependable. It blends in and doesn’t surprise people by being a flashy or weird EV. It is very understated and passes itself off as a normal Golf. It feels very much like VW’s bridge between their old, Dieselgate tainted past and their new, brave ID-inflected future; a (very nice) stopgap before their dedicated all-electric range hits the roads.

Driving experience

Around 149 miles range on a full charge is enough for all your normal day to day driving, and great price points designed to shift units, this is the EV for people that are also looking for a bit of familiarity. in looks and feel.  

If you’re looking for a car that resonates with the past but looks to the future, you would do a lot worse than the Volkswagen e-Golf.


There is an abundance of head and leg room in the front, with a generously wide interior that means you won’t want for shoulder room

What Car?

I loved my Mk5 Golf GT back in the day, and this car carries on in that tradition; fun to drive, comfy inside and enough room to get the family about
