Volkswagen's take on the all-electric family car is, as you'd expect, an extremely convincing one

Good stuff

Feels like a Golf, drives like one too

Bad stuff

Useless if you're regularly commuting from Penzance to Portsmouth

Overview

What is it?

The first-ever Golf to entirely do away with that old-school notion of an internal combustion engine. The e-Golf is propelled solely by an electric motor sending 114bhp to the front wheels, fed by a 24.2kW lithium ion battery tucked down between the axles. Apart from that, this is very much a Golf, underpinned by the familiar MQB bits underneath.

What's the verdict?

The e-Golf is an EV that works for most of us, most of the time. A truly convincing electric car.
