e-Golf Delivers Increased Economy and Range

New Battery has Increased Energy Capacity

As part of the VW Golf lineup, the e-Golf is an attractive alternative for eco-conscious consumers looking to reduce emissions. For 2017, the e-Golf has increased range thanks to the new 35.8 kWh lithium ion battery. The new e-Golf now has an EPA-estimated ability to go 125 miles on a charge, up significantly from 83 miles last year. When using a 240V charging system, the new e-Golf can go from completely drained to a full charge in less than six hours. The DC Fast Charging option allows the battery to get an 80 percent charge in less than an hour. Take a visit to Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale to learn more about the new VW e-Golf.

New Motor Delivers More Horsepower

VW has also created a new electric motor for the 2017 e-Golf that ups the horsepower from 115 to 134. The 85 kW electric motor also generates 214 pound feet of torque for quick acceleration on its way to a top speed of 93 mph. The EPA estimates the new e-Golf will get up to the equivalent of 111 MPG on the highway and 126 MPG in the city. That equates to an estimated fuel cost for the average driver of $550 per year. The new e-Golf will be showing up at dealerships later this spring.

Golf Family Offers Something for Everyone

Starting with the base VW Golf hatchback, the Golf is the most popular model in the VW lineup, offering a little something for everyone. The base Golf is sporty enough for most people, offering an energy-efficient commuter that’s fun to drive. Move up to the Golf GTI and Golf R and you get increased horsepower and performance for people who still think driving is something to enjoy. The Golf SportWagen offers more room for families with the same great handling, while the all-new Golf Alltrack is an alternative off-road option for those with an adventurous spirit.

Alltrack Delivers with “All-wheee” Drive

As Volkswagen likes to say, the new VW Golf Alltrack delivers a fun off-road performance with “all-whee” drive. The patented VW 4Motion all-wheel drive system kicks in when you need it for traction, then disengages on smooth roads so you get the maximum fuel efficiency possible. Features such as Hill Descent Control keep you in charge when coming down steep inclines. Steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters let you quickly change gears while concentrating on staying between the boulders.
