The numbers are in! We’ve got the official information from the Environmental Protection Agency for the 2017 VW e-Golf estimated range and fuel economy. Although our team here at Volkswagen Santa Monica has touched on this subject before, we wanted to provide our readers with the official numbers that were just released.
To make this easier, we’re going to highlight the changes from the 2016 e-Golf to the 2017 e-Golf to show drivers all of performance improvements. Check out the chart below for details:
|2016 VW e-Golf||2017 VW e-Golf|
|Battery energy capacity||24.2 kWh||35.8 kWh|
|EPA-estimated total range||83 miles||125 miles|
|EPA-estimated fuel economy||126 city/ 105 hwy MPGe||126 city/ 111 hwy MPGe|
|Total horsepower||115 hp||134 hp|
Those who choose the 2017 VW e-Golf will spend an estimated $550 annual on fuel costs, so it’s safe to say you’ll definitely save with this efficient new model. It’s also faster than last year’s model going from zero to 60 mph in 9.6 seconds with a top speed of 93 mph. Drivers can get behind the wheel when the 2017 e-Golf arrives this Spring! Stay tuned for details on the exact release date.
