Introduction

The 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf, the all-electric version of the long-running Golf hatchback, serves up a taste of German engineering without burning a drop of fossil fuel. The current Golf was designed from the start to accommodate electric power, so it comes as no surprise that the e-Golf looks and feels nearly identical to the rest of the line. You get the same packaging, versatility, and driving dynamics that give the other versions their appeal.

Under the hood is a 115-horsepower electric motor that delivers 83 miles of range and 126/105 MPGe City/Highway. (MPGe is the EPA’s measurement of how far an EV can travel on the amount of energy in a gallon of gas.) A single-speed automatic transmission delivers power to the front wheels, and a lithium-ion battery pack is mounted under the passenger floor. The e-Golf offers quick-charge technology that can restore a depleted battery to 80 percent capacity in just 30 minutes.

The e-Golf debuted last year as part of the latest generation of Golf models. For 2016, e-Golf gets a revised infotainment system with Apple Car Play and Android Auto capability. The newly available Driver Assistance package features a front collision mitigation system. For now, the e-Golf is sold in 10 states covering the Northeast and West Coast, which is actually decent availability for an EV. VW has stated it plans to expand into other markets in the near future.

The e-Golf competes with mainstream electric hatchbacks such as the Nissan Leaf, Ford Focus Electric, and Kia Soul EV. When fully equipped, it’s also a cost-conscious alternative to the upscale BMWi3 and Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive.

Lineup

The SE ($28,995) comes with features like a rearview camera, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic wipers, and an eight-speaker sound system with HD and satellite radio.

The SEL Premium ($35,595) carries an upgraded interior with leatherette upholstery, navigation, cruise control, and parking sensors. Quick-charge capability is standard on the SEL Premium and optional on the SE.

Walkaround

Like its siblings, the e-Golf is conservatively styled, but that doesn’t mean dowdy in this case. The hatchback body looks crisp and mature. Some might even call it classic. If you’re looking for an EV that doesn’t look like one, this is it. The only clues are the shuttered grille and lack of a tailpipe, which actually result in a sleeker appearance. The e-Golf also gets unique LED lighting in front and a special wheel design.

Interior

The no-nonsense theme carries over to the inside, which features clean, angular shapes and well-defined controls. Most surfaces are covered in soft, nicely grained materials. The 6.5-inch touchscreen found on the SE is informative and easy enough to use, but visibility is much better with the 8-inch unit used in the SEL Premium. The e-Golf gets some blue accents and an electric power display, but is otherwise identical to other Golfs inside.

The upright, relatively boxy body provides impressive head and shoulder room for this class. Front passengers will be plenty comfortable on long trips, and the back feels spacious enough for a pair of full-size adults. Surprisingly, the battery pack doesn’t interfere with cargo space at all. You get a 22.8 cubic feet of it behind the rear seat, and an exceptional 52.7 cubic feet with it folded. That’s more than some small crossovers.

Driving Impressions

With its electric power and shiftless transmission, the e-Golf is remarkably smooth and quiet on the road. The motor is tuned to deliver maximum torque at takeoff, so the e-Golf feels surprisingly peppy in city driving. Acceleration ebbs as you reach cruising speeds, but not to the point where you feel deprived of power. Getting up to 60 mph from a standstill takes about 9.1 seconds, which is slightly above average for an EV in this price class.

The e-Golf features Eco and Eco+ driving modes that reduce horsepower from 115 to 94 and 74, respectively. These settings are designed to extend your driving range, although performance drops off considerably. They are best used when you’re already cruising at a comfortable speed.

You can also extend your range by selecting how much braking energy is used to charge the battery pack. There are three regenerative braking modes that control how fast the car slows down on its own using a grabbing action applied by the motor. The faster the car slows by itself, the more braking energy is routed to the battery. In maximum regeneration mode, you seldom need to hit the brake pedal to slow down. It can take some type to get used to this driving style, which is probably why VW offers three modes progressive modes (you can also turn off regeneration completely). A driving range of 100 miles or more is possible once you get the hang of the available driving and braking modes.

Although the battery pack adds weight, it’s positioned at the lowest point on the body and the suspension is specially tuned to compensate for it. As a result, the e-Golf handles with the same precision and athleticism as the regular Golf. Ride quality is actually better, and there’s an overall sense of stability that you usually don’t find in cars this size. The hushed operation only enhances this feeling. The only thing you might hear is the gentle siren that sounds at low speeds to alert pedestrians that the e-Golf is approaching.

Summary

Aside from reduced driving range, the e-Golf requires no sacrifices or attitude adjustments for buyers making the switch to electric power. Everything there is to like about the regular Golf is here, along with seemingly effortless operation. It’s an indication that life will go on after fossil fuels.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
