VW Takes Wraps off e-Golf at LA Auto Show

New Version Offers More Power and Range

The latest generation of the e-Golf was recently shown to the public for the first time at the Los Angeles Auto Show, revealing a sharp uptick in power, range and new features from its predecessor. The 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf increases the range on a single charge to 124 miles, up almost 50 percent from last year’s model. The electric motor shows a jump of 19 horsepower from 2016, now producing 134 horses with 214 pound-feet of torque. This enables the new e-Golf to cut a second off its 0-60 mph time en route to a top speed of 93 mph. Keep in touch with Chapman Volkswagen to see when the new e-Golf will be making an appearance on the showroom floor.

High-tech Features Both Fun and Functional

The new VW e-Golf is loaded with high-tech features that make it a joy to drive. The optional Volkswagen Digital Cockpit displays all the instruments on a large color screen. Drivers can change the information profiles to deliver different types of data, as well as varying graphics including album art. The Discover Pro infotainment system also allows drivers and passengers to configure the home screen to their liking. The 9.2-inch color display is a totally new design. This system is geared up for the launch of a gesture control system in two years that will only take a swipe or a pinch to move through the menus and pick the music or function you want to use. Remote access remains a part of the e-Golf suite of features, letting you use your smart phone to locate your car, start the battery charging, lock and unlock doors, etc.

More Driver Assistance Safety Features This Year

Drivers of the 2017 VW e-Golf will have access to more driver assistance safety features than ever, including pedestrian monitoring added to the Forward Collision Warning system. If your vehicle is in danger of striking a person, the e-Golf will first warn you both audibly and visually, then apply the brakes if you fail to react. Choose the optional Drive Assistance Package and you’ll receive the digital cockpit, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with pedestrian monitoring, blind spot monitoring, lane assist, light assist and park assist.

Design Changes Feature LED Lights

Along with more power and features, the 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf also includes a new look with redesigned bumpers and fenders along with LED headlights, tail lights and daytime running lights. The running lights are integrated into the new bumper, creating a seamless front end with a sharp, modern look. The new e-Golf, a technological marvel with extended range, will be making its debut at Chapman Volkswagen in the near future.
