Volkswagen e-Golf is the ultimate stealthy electric car

Have you seen the new e-Golf???

we like it that the e-Golf looks just like, well, any other Golf.

Barring some badging and wheel design, you'd never know from the outside that this Golf is electric.

That means the e-Golf's lithium battery is fully integrated into the chassis floor, rather than being a great lump randomly bolted on.

It comes with a 15hp electric motor and a 24KWh lithium battery pack and has an official NEDC range of 118 miles and starts at £25,845 in the UK

Nought to 62mph in 10.4 seconds and a top speed limited to 87mph.

that will do me fine.

The other thing that pops into your head initially is what's the point of all this? Isn't the Golf the jack of all trades? What are you supposed to do with a Golf that will only go 100 miles and takes four hours to charge, even with a beefy 30 amp power supply (it's about double that on a standard UK / European socket, double again on a standard US socket)? - we can install one for you, piece of cake!!!

if you don't do long distance travel it will be fine for you...

The e-Golf makes sense as an urban / suburban runabout.

think you might give it a punt??? it's not that over the top compared to the Golf GTD for price...
