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.
Practical family vehicle, excellent driveability and solid build quality.
Doesn’t look special, range nothing to shout about and pricey compared to rivals.
