VW E-GOLF

Daily Express - - TOTAL EV -

PRICE: from £27,690 We’re all fa­mil­iar with the reg­u­lar Volk­swa­gen Golf but the all-elec­tric e-Golf is a rare sight on UK roads.

Given a facelift for 2017, the lat­est model gains a boosted range, more power and im­proved on-board tech­nol­ogy.

Thanks to some engi­neer­ing nous from the man­u­fac­turer’s devel­op­ment team, the car’s lithium-ion bat­tery of­fers even greater ca­pac­ity, with­out tak­ing up any ad­di­tional space.

The re­sult is a claimed range of 186 miles with charg­ing tak­ing four hours on a home charger. As with all VW group cars, the e-Golf boasts a solid in­te­rior.

PROS:

Prac­ti­cal fam­ily ve­hi­cle, ex­cel­lent drive­abil­ity and solid build qual­ity.

CONS:

Doesn’t look spe­cial, range noth­ing to shout about and pricey com­pared to ri­vals.
