now there are those electric cars like the BMW i3 that look all newfangled and space-age whereas the e-golf looks kind of like a golf really but that may or may not be a good thing depending on your point of view however what is good is that for 2017 the e-golf gets an increased range of 186 miles or in the real world even VW admits that’s more like to be about 125 miles but that’s still more than good.
enough for most people’s uses so let’s go and have a look and see what the e-golf is like to drive of course being an electric car there’s no rattling petrol or diesel engine up front just a nice smooth electric motor but when you put your foot down very slight we’re in the background and that makes it very nice and quiet and have been refined inside and also the fact that when you’re doing 70 miles an hour on the motorway there’s not much wind or tire noise either the other thing is that it’s quite brisk so you get an instant talk when when you accelerate away from a set of traffic lights which makes the car very good in
town for nipping in and out of spaces but also it will easily get you up to 70
miles an hour and a nice cruise on the motorway as well it’s also worth remembering that the golf is a practical car so you can seat four people no problem at all you’ve got a decent sized boot as well and the e-golf is based o SE trim which is well equipped anyway but the ego also adds to that thing like LED headlights a heated windscreen and also you get a massive 9.2 inch touchscreen which is the top spec model you can buy in the Gulf with sat-nav and plenty of connectivity features as well there is no doubt that the previous Gul was held back by its limited range but with the new e Gulf that’s no longer the
case because while it’s not class-leading it is very competitive with the rest of the segment but there is a but we don’t know the price V hasn’t announced them yet but we think about 32,000 pounds less your four and a half thousand pound government grant so that puts you roughly in line with a BMW
