2017 Volkswagen e-Golf Electric Mileage Range

The electric cousin of the list-topping hatchback has arrived to stellar ratings — the 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf.

Waiting for you now at Volkswagen Santa Monica, this hatchback is full of luxury features like a smart infotainment system and versatile interior that you’re sure to love. Find out what the experts praise below before you come in to give it your own review today!

What the Critics Have to Say

It’s no surprise that year’s model arrives to high marks as it did last year, outshining popular competitors for its upscale interior and great value.

  • At Car and Driver, one critic noted, “A short drive along the California coast proved that the reasons to choose an e-Golf are the same as the reasons to choose any Golf: access to VW family values, including a rock-solid platform, excellent dynamics (improved, actually, with a lower center of gravity due to the battery mounting below the floor), and fastidious interior packaging.”

  • Green Car Reports praised this year’s model’s improvements for boosted battery life by saying, “That’s a 50-percent increase over the previous model’s 83 miles, and significantly increases the practicality of the e-Golf for drivers with longer commutes—or those who live in areas with winter weather.”

  • Over at Motortrend, another reviewer remarked on the likeness this electric car has to its popular cousin by writing, “It’s safe to say the e-Golf is one of the more natural driving EVs available today.”
