Perfect around town car - Zero Emissions

by Chris_in_SB from Santa Barbara, CA on Mon Jun 25 2018

Although the range is only around 90 miles on a single charge, this vehicle is perfect for around town. Takes 8 hrs to fully charge vehicle using a 110V outlet. Very comfortable and reliable. Build quality is outstanding.

Great service

by Cesarin from Frederick, MD on Sun Jul 10 2016

Very happy with my new VW e-golf! Is very sport and nothing like an electric car. No gas anymore. Also de design is like a regular car no something futuristic and lookin weird.

Love the fact its reducing our carbon footprint

by NAPALYNNW from NAPA,Ca on Wed Aug 09 2017

Easy to drive as it effortlessly glides along without the annoying engine exhaust sound and seems to have plenty of pep! Bought a level 2 charger on line that charges the battery about 3 times faster then the charger that came with the car. My wife Loves the car!

eGolf

by EV Newbie from Mountain View, CA on Fri May 05 2017

Good all around car, however, the mileage is awful ~90 to a charge, still working on it, hopefully, this improves as we learn more of the intricacies.

Looks, drives like a regular ice car

by EGolf Rob from Milton Mills, NH on Wed Oct 30 2019

Bought used, cant really tell by the looks of it, 35,400 miles. I commute daily in it, charge it nightly and it’s ready to go in the morning, nice and warm. Car is pretty much a regular Golf other than the eMotor and the battery. Handles real nice due to very low center of gravity. Surprisingly good acceleration. 3 modes of power, normal, eco and eco+. Regenerative braking dumps power back into battery, If you drive carefully and leave plenty of room between your car and the one in front of you, you can almost use no braking and really extend your range. Very intuitive electronics, just took me a couple of days to get used to it. If you get the chance test drive one, you won’t regret it. Come December I’ll be charging from my Solar Array, so I won’t be paying for electricity.

environmental responsibility

by sardine can from La Jolla, CA on Sat Nov 25 2017

Great car, great value, good performance, excellent environmentally but a real pain to get a charging station installed in a condo garage and expensive.

New owner, but seems super solid

by Percy311 from Omaha NE on Thu Jan 03 2019

What more do you have to say? It’s the Tesla Model3 5 years before it ever arrived and it’s actually $35k new! I scored a 2 year old top trim SEL for $18k and couldn’t be happier!

Looks Sporty, Drives Fast, Clean and no Emissions

by Karl K. from Chandler AZ on Fri Jul 21 2017

e-Golf is like any other Golf. Interior is excellent. Good room inside. Performance is great. Suspension is a little soft than regular golf maybe because of battery weight. Other than that, it is an excellent car to own.

Very nice elctric car even comparing to MB B-class

by JoannaP from Ladera Ranch on Mon Aug 21 2017

Drives nice, comfortable, good visibility around, excellent navigation and menu. But I'm missing home link (garage door opener) and lane departure warnings.
