What is it?
It's the first-ever Golf to entirely do away with that old-school notion of an internal combustion engine. The e-Golf is instead propelled solely by an electric motor, fed by a battery pack, sending 113bhp to the front wheels. It'll get from zero to 37mph in 4.2 seconds, to 62mph around six seconds later, and top out at 87mph. Prices start at £25,845 (including government EV subsidy) when it lands in the UK this summer.
