The Top Gear car review:Volkswagen e-Golf
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
It’s a Golf. Space for a battery pack was engineered into the MQB architecture from the very start – indeed, electric Golfs roll down the same production line as their petrol and diesel counterparts – so no compromise was needed when packaging the e-Golf’s electric gubbins. With the 318kg battery lurking effectively under the passengers’ feet, legroom is identical to that of every other Golf. And, of course, all the nav/music goodies are as we’ve come to expect from the slickest family hatch out there.
