Volkswagen E Golf is the first electric car being sold by Volkswagen from the year 2015 in the United States. The unique distinction of the Volkswagen e-golf lies in its synchronous permanent magnet AC motor and its dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The 2019 e-golf Volkswagen has been improved with a more fast-charging DC motor, more advanced driver’s aids being made standard in all trims and it has been rated number three among other electric cars by scoring 7.9 scores out of ten because of its wonderful performance more like other gasoline engine cars and plenty of standard features available for passengers. The styling of the car is pretty much nice but its normality is its actual strength. Although the mileage is offered by it less than its rivals but its overall performance, ride quality, and premium versatile interior will definitely urge you to buy the Volkswagen e-golf when you are shopping for a stepping stone in the electric world.
It is available in two trim levels that include SE and SEL premium.

Powertrain, Battery & Range of Volkswagen E Golf:
The power of the Volkswagen e-golf comes from its 35.8-kilowatt-hour battery that can be charged at either a 120-volt outlet or a 240-volt outlet with a difference in its charging time. The 120-volt outlet charges the battery in 26 hours but the 240 volts outlet charges it in six hours only. E golf is fun to drive with responsive and accurate steering control and outclass acceleration that requires 8.5 seconds to reach sixty miles per hour in our acceleration testing at a top speed of 150 miles per hour. E golf promises a mileage of 110 miles per gallon which is quite less than the mileage offered by its competitor electric cars.
The braking pedal is firm and the fuel-saving tires require 128 feet to stop from sixty miles per hour. E golf delivers a predictable response on turning around the roads without giving the dirty feeling on straights and it requires very low effort. The handling of e golf is also well balanced and it orbits the skid pad at 0.88g. E golf leans very less when turning the car around corners because of the low mass battery pack. The brake regeneration lift throttle has four levels that can be selected easily with the shift lever. The DSG offers a faster gear shift than any other manual transmission with a hydraulic torque converter that had made it unique among other cars of its class.
