Volkswagen e-Golf review

£11,807 - £47,095
Published: 13 Jan 2015


What should I be paying?

VW quotes a range of 118 miles on a single charge, claiming the e-Golf is around 30 per cent more energy efficient than competitors such as the Nissan Leaf, but as ever with EVs it depends how you drive. Exercise reasonable right-foot restraint and you’ll achieve around 100 miles on a charge, which, with the right energy tariff, should cost you 5p per mile. The e-Golf can be 80 per cent fast-charged in just 30 minutes, but you’ll need 13 hours or so to brim the battery at home. The list price says £30k but the Government grant takes £5k off that, making it look like a bit of a bargain to buy, particularly when it’s so well equipped as standard. If an electric car fits your lifestyle, this is one of the best out there.
