2015 Volkswagen e-Golf Review, Price and Release – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Volkswagen e-Golf Redesign. 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf is one brand new car from Volkswagen that will be release in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf.
Volkswagen is electrifying Europe’s most successful car ever: the Golf. The best seller with sales of over 30 million units to its name thus marches on to become the Volkswagen e-Golf with drive technology that delivers zero tailpipe emissions. Volkswagen is celebrating the world premiere of the e-Golf at the 2013 International Motor Show in Frankfurt. Also making its public debut at the IAA is another battery-powered electric Volkswagen, the e-up!. From now on, Volkswagen will thus be offering in its vehicles every form of drive system relevant in the world today.
On the European market the new e-Golf will be available starting the spring of 2014. In Asia and America, it will arrive in late 2014 or early 2015. Prices will be announced at a later date.
Visually the unique, always four-door Volkswagen e-Golf can be recognised even from a distance by its especially energy-efficient all-LED headlights, being used here as a world first. Compared to xenon headlights the LED system produces more light despite consuming less power. From now on, an identifying feature of Volkswagen electric cars will be the C-shaped designer signature of the LED daytime running lights in the redesigned front bumper. At the rear, the latest Golf can be made out as a zero-emission car by such features as the absence of any exhaust pipes. In addition appropriate model name markings and the VW logo with a blue background also show that the e-Golf is a zero-emission vehicle. Also standard on the car’s exterior, as mentioned above, are LED rear lights and the aerodynamically perfectly balanced 16-inch alloy wheels with 205 tyres optimised for low rolling resistance.
In addition to the specific fabric design (seats in the ‘Merlin e-grey / Clip titanium black’ pattern; optionally leather) and the extremely good level of standard equipment (incl. automatic climate control, parking heater/ventilation, high-end Discover Pro radio-navigation system, heated windscreen, leather steering wheel, leather gear knob and elegant ‘Iridium Matrix / Dark Magnesium’ trim) striking features in the interior of the e-Golf include the new instrument layout and the touchscreen in the centre console, which is also equipped with new functions. In line with the exterior, the interior is also enhanced by blue elements, including the decorative seams of the leather steering wheel and gear knob, plus the floor-mat edgings. As an option the so-called ‘Ambience pack’ creates a link with the world of ‘Think Blue.': it contains LED reading lights, blue footwell illumination, blue ambient lighting around the decorative trim and, of course, door-sill tread plates also illuminated in blue.
The new e-golf is powered by an EEM 85 electric motor that delivers a total of 115 horsepower and a peak torque of 199 pound-feet. The electric motor delivers enough power to sprint the e-golf from 0 to 60 km/h (37 mph) in just 4.2 seconds and to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 10.4 seconds. On the highway, the model can hit a top speed of 140 km/h (86 mph), and depending on the route and driving style, the new e-Golf has a driving rage between 130 and 190 km (80 and 118 miles).
The electric motor takes is powered from a lithium-ion battery hidden under the front and rear seats, and in the area of the center tunnel. The battery weights 318 kg (701 pounds) and features a total of 264 individual cells integrated into 27 modules.
The e-Golf offers three different driving modes: “Normal”, “Eco” and “Eco+.” In Eco mode, the engine delivers only 93 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, and the e-Golf can hit a top speed of only 115 km/h (71 mph). In Eco+, the engine delivers a total of 73 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque, and can hit speed of up to 90 km/h (55 mph).
The e-Golf is also equipped with regenerative braking featuring five different levels, ranging from ‘D’ (no regenerative braking), ‘D1’, D2’, ‘D3’ up to ‘B’, where regenerative braking has the strongest effect.
