Volkswagen e-Golf tested by Model 3 Owners Club???
The Model 3 Owners Club found and tested the 2018 Volkswagen e-Golf in Canada, which is equipped with a larger battery pack that holds nearly 50% more energy than the previous version (35.8 kWh compared to 24.2 kWh - the first longer range copies arrive in September in the US).
The range improved from 83 miles up to 125 miles (200 km) under the EPA test cycle (and 300 km NEDC). Range gets a further boost thanks to the use of a heat pump.
According to the review, the new e-Golf is very fine car to drive. It's quiet, smooth and has excellent fit and finish.
The only problem with the e-Golf is that Volkswagen is a few years behind the cutting edge as the new goal for 2017-2018 electric cars is 200 mile of range or so.
"In this segment we take the brand new 2018 VW E-GOLF for a Test drive. Please note this is the Canadian version so it might differ from the US version."
"Base price for the E-Golf in Canada is $35,999. The tech package is $2300 and so is the drive assistance package. Custom colours over the standard 9 cost an additional $2900. In Ontario after the $14,000 rebate, will result in a base net cost of just under $26,700 after taxes. Not bad at all!"
