What is the Volkswagen e-Golf?


Ever wondered if the Volkswagen Golf had an EV version? The answer is yes! The new Volkswagen e-Golf is an all-electric hatchback that looks similar to the Golf but operates very differently. It delivers the same powerful performance as its gas-powered sibling while helping you reduce your carbon footprint and slash gas prices. If you’re looking for a more efficient way to travel around Naperville, learn more about the Volkswagen e-Golf below!

All-Electric Performance

According to the EPA, the Volkswagen e-Golf can travel up to 125 miles* on a single charge. That’s enough power to commute to Chicago or explore Countryside without having to worry about recharging. The e-Golf hatchback’s advanced EV system includes the following:

  • 100 kW AC synchronous electric motor that produces 134 hp with 214 lb-ft of torque
  • Normal, Eco, and Eco+ driving modes
  • Three selectable levels of regenerative braking
  • 35.8 kWh lithium-ion battery
  • 7.2 kW onboard charger

Plan to use your VW e-Golf to travel long distances? Choose the available SAE combo DC Fast Charge and you’ll benefit from lightning-fast charging capabilities.
