2017 Volkswagen e-Golf Electric Mileage Range

The future of electric driving is here, and it appears Volkswagen is making huge shifts to make electric driving a better experience for drivers. The all-electric e-Golf has been around for a little while, and it already offers impressive range. That said, reports online suggest the 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf electric mileage range could receive a significant boost.

According to a report on Autocar, the 2017 model will be receiving increased battery capacity. As the report states, the battery will have a capacity of 35.8 kWh, which is an improvement over the existing 24.2 kWh.

This means that the 2017 VW e-Golf could have an electric mileage range of as much as 186 miles. Though this estimated range should likely be based on the NEDC rather than EPA estimates, it’s still a significant improvement over the already impressive 83 miles the current 2016 e-Golf is capable of. That said, these estimates are not official, but we’ll be able to update you with the official range estimate once it’s made available.
