What Is the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf?
The 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf is the all-electric version of the Golf five-seat hatchback. It has the same spacious, versatile interior as the gas model and a 125-mile driving range, according to the EPA. That’s less than the ranges offered by competitors like the Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Bolt EV. Launched as a 2015 model, the front-wheel-drive e-Golf is offered only in select states.
What’s New on the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf?
The base SE trim level adds DC fast-charging capability, which enables the car’s battery pack to be charged to 80 percent within an hour. The top SEL Premium trim comes with forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist and automatic high-beam headlights.
What Features in the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf Are Most Important?
One of the best things about the Golf is true in the e-Golf as well: The all-electric hatchback has one of the roomiest interiors in the five-seat small-car class. The available active safety features, 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and 9.2-inch touchscreen on the SEL Premium trim don’t justify the $7,000 upcharge over the SE model, but they are useful — and fun — features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity is standard.
Should I Buy the 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf?
If the price is right. The car’s roomy interior in the handsome Golf hatchback package is compelling, but expect it to be discounted in the states it’s sold in due to competition that offers nearly double the range.
