2015 Volkswagen e-Golf Limited Edition price sliced
A higher-value variation on the basic EV theme, the 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf Limited Edition is heading into showrooms with a starting sticker of $34,270 before the $7,500 federal tax credit and any other state or local incentives. Available at participating VW dealers across the country, the new Limited Edition costs $1,995 less than a standard SLE-spec e-Golf. To lower its bottom line, Volkswagen swapped the SLE's alloy wheels for 16-inch steel alternatives, fitted conventional halogen headlamps in place of its LED units, trimmed the Limited Edition's cabin in cloth rather than leatherette and deleted the heat pump system while leaving all of the e-Golf's fundamental elements intact.
Buyers willing to forego the aforementioned premium touches will still get an e-Golf powered by the same 115-horse electric motor that delivers an EPA-spec 119 MPGe combined fuel economy number linked to a 24.2kWh lithium-ion battery pack that earns an 83-mile per-charge range rating. Fitted with a 7.2kW on-board charger, the Limited Edition also has DC Fast Charging capability that can replenish the battery to an 80-percent level in about 30 minutes. Like the SLE, the Limited Edition's roster of standards also includes navigation system, dual-zone auto climate control, keyless entry/starting, a rearview camera and front/rear park distance controls. Volkswagen also announced it will offer the new 2015 e-Golf Limited Edition on a lease deal for $229 a month plus applicable fees.
