About Volkswagen e-Golf

Once a simple, unassuming hatchback, the 2017 Volkswagen Golf line has grown to include an all-electric e-Golf, two high-performance trims (GTI and R) and a wagon (reviewed separately). Although the fuel-economy champ TDI diesel is no longer offered, the Golf TSI’s standard 1.8-liter turbocharged gasoline engine returns highway fuel economy in the 35-mpg range and is a rather peppy performer. While competitors like the Honda Civic, Chevrolet Cruze and Hyundai Elantra have caught up to the Golf in terms of performance and comfort, the 2017 VW Golf still displays a more upscale feel. Its German heritage delivers excellent driving characteristics that still seem to elude Hyundai and Honda, although the Mazda3 trumps the Golf TSI in both handling and fuel economy.

"First off with the negative(s): -- its an electric with only 80 miles range -- this makes it pretty much only a commuter car for around town and short trips. Next the positives: -- its electric! -- instant torque at any RPM -- because the battery weight is low it corners like a go-cart -- its super quiet (no gas engine) -- its super smooth (no gas engine with narrow torque band) -- no trips to smelly gas station (no gas engine) -- low maintenance costs (see below) -- inexpensive to drive (over 100 MPG equivalent), and you can often find free charging -- we live on a hill and most of the energy we lose going up comes back to us going down -- cruise control works even downhill (while adding charge to your battery at the same time) -- single pedal driving means you seldom have to use the brakes (down on the gas pedal to go faster, up on gas pedal to slow down); this is super fun to use on twisty mountain roads. What it doesnt have (and you wont miss): -- muffler, engine noise, rumbling, shaking, oil changes, transmission, spark plugs, valves, pistons, crankshaft, ... -- the lack of so many complicated devices means they never have to be fixed or replaced"
