Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*
Especially on short journeys, like in urban areas, a purely electric powertrain is the ideal mobility solution. With the new e-Golf, you can also leave the city. It boasts a range of 300 km (NEDC)***.
How many kilometres do you travel every day? Adjust the control and fuel range calculation values precisely to your needs. You will see that in most cases, the e-Golf will adapt to your everyday life.
The "City" and "Country" speed profiles are typical everyday driving modes of the e-Golf.
City (average speed approx. 30 km/h):
The "City" driving mode reflects typical driving behaviour in urban areas, with speeds of up to 70 km/h and frequent stops and delays. Here, the e-Golf uses recuperation to recover brake energy and improve the fuel range. Due to the low average speed, the air conditioning settings have a significant influence on fuel range.
Country (average speed approx. 70 km/h):
The "Country" driving mode reflects typical driving behaviour on roads and motorways outside the city, with few stops and a maximum speed of over 130 km/h (ECO driving mode: 120 km/h | ECO+ driving mode: 95 km/h). The high average speed means that the air conditioning has less influence on the fuel range.
Summer or winter, you will want to drive your e-Golf all year round. The temperature regulator allows you to test the influence of the outside temperature on the fuel range. This does not take into account whether you have activated the air conditioning or heating and fresh air systems. You can find more settings options here under "Air conditioning".
While on the road, you can use the selected driving mode to directly influence energy consumption. Alongside the normal driving mode, you can select from the ECO and ECO+ driving modes. ECO+ mode lets you achieve maximum fuel range, depending on additional consumption factors. ECO mode is the perfect choice for drivers who value agility and comfort. However, if the battery contains enough charge, you can of course drive at higher speeds in both profiles. For example, when overtaking or when you need a quick burst of power.
Although the air conditioning and heater systems can make the interior more comfortable, they can also have a significant influence on the energy consumption of your e-Golf. If you use the air conditioning or heater systems often, bear in mind that this will have an effect on the fuel range. When calculating the factors that affect the fuel range, it is assumed that you have the interior temperature set to 22°C. Higher or lower interior temperatures can cause deviations in the fuel range.
The optional heat pump is an energy-efficient alternative for the winter, which uses the ambient air and waste heat from the electrical drive components to provide warmth. This can lead to energy savings of up to 50% compared to an electrical heating system. This in turn has a positive effect on fuel range.
In extreme weather, you will love the pre-air conditioning system. The Car-Net remote control system allows you to switch it on and off from your smartphone when you're on the go, or from your PC in the living room. This means when you get into your e-Golf, the temperature in the vehicle interior will be just right. Using the air conditioning while charging also has a positive effect on the available fuel range. As the vehicle interior is at the required temperature when you start your journey, you save energy by not having to heat or cool.
*Actual fuel range is influenced by a wide range of factors. Alongside the factors described here, the individual driving behaviour (acceleration) and the journey profile (altitude) have a significant influence on the actual fuel range.
Futuristic and yet familiar: in addition to the typical blue elements, the striking Volkswagen e-Design includes a range of attractive highlights that enhance the e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*) – and not just visually. These include the full LED headlights in a daylight-look colour and the striking design of the LED daytime running lights with their characteristic C shape – both delivering greater luminosity with low energy consumption.
The weight-optimised 16-inch Astana alloy wheels with optimised rolling resistance tyres contribute further to the vehicle’s efficiency. Together with the roof spoiler, they give the e-Golf an even more dynamic look. They also improve the aerodynamics, positive affecting the fuel range among other factors.
The tail of the e-Golf is also appealing, with its LED tail light cluster and number plate light.
The interior of the e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*) sets e-specific accents with its unmistakeable design, featuring blue decorative stitching on the steering wheel and gear lever. Beautifully finished leather adorns the steering wheel and gear knob.
The Discover Pro navigation system, included as standard, has also been designed especially for the e-Golf and offers a wealth of innovative features. The 23.4 cm (9.2 inch) colour touchscreen display presents a clear overview of the relevant information, such as the fuel range, energy consumption and energy recovery statistics. The Premium multifunction display and power meter will also help you keep an eye on the most important information about your vehicle.
And there’s more: blue illuminated decorative trim and sill panel mouldings in the optional ambient lighting provide a futuristic atmosphere as you glide through the night in your e-Golf.
The light-emitting diode or LED is a brilliant invention, which has become an integral part of modern technology. Compared with conventional bulbs, which produce a lot of heat energy as not as much light energy, the LED is a real energy-saving wonder. LED lights also last longer and are less likely to fail.
You will find that light-emitting diodes are used in many ways in your e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*), especially in the front headlights and tail light cluster. The full LED headlights, which resemble the colouring of daylight, diffuse a pleasant light whilst also lighting up the road effectively. The characteristic C shape of the LED daytime running lights is more than a design element, since it also makes your vehicle more visible. This is also true of the attractively shaped LED tail light cluster.
Another innovative feature are the optional sweeping indicators: an animated strip of light that moves in the direction in which you are going to turn.
Because the wheels on your e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*) don’t just look great but are also economical in operation, you can certainly say that they round off the full package perfectly. Astana 6.5 J x 16 alloy wheels with diamond turned surfaces and optimised rolling resistance tyres continue to drive the theme of efficiency. These tyres also offer one of the pleasant side-effects of aerodynamic optimisations: they often go perfectly with a particularly flowing, dynamic design. That means that techies won’t be the only ones gazing longingly at your car.
The Discover Pro navigation system is the Infotainment system for the especially discerning driver. With innovative gesture control, it's easy to move around in the main menu or – with a single hand movement – to switch from radio station to radio station or from song to song, for example.
It has a 23.4 cm (9.2 inch) TFT touchscreen for a first-rate 3D map display, and – with one USB interface, two SD card slots and Bluetooth – has fantastic connection options. It also features a CD player that even plays MP3 and WMA files, as well as FM radio reception and eight loudspeakers.
Additional highlights include that the voice-activated controls respond to spoken place names and street names and calculate a route according to your instructions. The vehicle's Bluetooth technology makes using the phone easier. Last but not least, the internal Flash memory has more than enough space for five years of free updates for your navigation software.

With Car-Net, you can enjoy the benefits of the Internet in your car: keep an eye on the current traffic, use your own smartphone apps or stay in contact with the Volkswagen customer care centre. And with the Car-Net e-Remote app, you can even use your smartphone as a remote control for your e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*). For example, the app allows you to adjust the temperature in the vehicle interior from anywhere, start or stop the charging process or view your remaining fuel range.
But Car-Net can do even more: the Car-Net Guide & Inform service package allows you to access current data from the web. This makes it possible, for example, to be alerted especially quickly if a traffic jam is forming or to find hotels, restaurants or filling stations thanks to the point of interest search function.
Car-Net App-Connect can be used to connect your smartphone to the Infotainment system and operate selected apps using the touchscreen. Car-Net Security & Service offers an emergency call service, as well as other functions. In addition, you can even create an on-board WLAN for your Volkswagen using the optional Volkswagen CarStick and a separate SIM card.
Never miss another call, while always keeping focused on the road. Two optional mobile phone interfaces make it easy and convenient to make phone calls while you drive. High-quality sound is assured, thanks to a digital speech processor, an integrated high-end microphone in the headliner and the vehicle's speakers. Connection to the external aerial ensures optimal reception even when signal is poor.
With the Comfort edition, you connect your mobile phone to the external aerial via an inductive (wireless) aerial connection in the centre console. This means you no longer need to buy matching mobile phone cradles.
In the Business version, a phone call begun outside the car can also be transferred to the hands-free system via Bluetooth while the mobile phone remains in your pocket. The system can be operated by voice command, via the multifunction steering wheel or using the Infotainment system. Very easy – and exactly how you wish.

Keeping a safe distance from the vehicle in front is reassuring while driving in traffic. Optional adaptive cruise control helps you to do just that.
ACC measures the proximity and speed of vehicles on the road ahead. In queues and traffic jams, the system combines with the optional DSG dual clutch gearbox to brake your e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*) to a stop and automatically move forward again shortly after. Within system limits, ACC can keep your car a safe distance from the vehicle in front at speeds of up to 210 km/h.
Sometimes the unexpected happens, and emergency braking is required. In these cases, the Front Assist area monitoring system can be useful. Within the system limits, you will receive a warning if the system detects a critical tailgating situation. In particularly critical situations, the system can also assist with braking or can even brake automatically to reduce the impact speed.
The City Emergency Braking system can intervene when you are driving at low speeds in city traffic, while Pedestrian Monitoring can detect, within the limits of the system, if for example a pedestrian steps onto the road suddenly. The assistance system provides relevant warnings, assists with braking or brakes automatically – always within the limits of the system. In the ideal case, this will prevent a collision or at least reduce its severity.
The optional Traffic Jam Assist uses proven functions such Adaptive Cruise Control ACC and lane keeping system Lane Assist to allow easy slow driving in traffic jams. Your e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*) will track the vehicle ahead and automatically operate the accelerator and brakes within the limits of the system. The vehicle is kept in lane.
The optional Emergency Assist system automatically engages when no driver activity can be detected, and there has been no response despite a warning. The system then tries to both prompt the driver and warn the passengers and other road users with brake jolts, acoustic warnings, the hazard warning lights and gentle steering movements. If the driver still does not take over control of the vehicle, the vehicle will be brought to a standstill in a controlled manner. This allows accidents to be prevented within the system limits.
Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist are part of the driver assistance package.
Optional Park Assist needs a mere 80 cm of space to manoeuvre your e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*) into the space. And what’s more, it can detect that space independently as you drive past at a maximum speed of 40 km/h. The system not only assists with reverse parallel parking, but can also help you pull forwards into both parallel and side-by-side spaces, for example in underground parking spaces where there’s little room.
You simply operate the clutch, accelerator and brake and the assistant will steer your car along the perfect line into the parking space – and out of side-by-side parking spaces as well. You can override or deactivate steering assistance at any time by taking the wheel, taking the car out of gear or pushing the Park Assist button.
If a car is approaching you from the rear and cannot be seen in your exterior or rear view mirror, it is in the dreaded blind spot. Before changing lanes, the trusty glance over the shoulder helps – and now, so does the optional blind spot sensor. From speeds of 15 km/h, the sensor can warn you by illuminating an LED icon on the exterior mirror of your e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*). If you still switch on your turn signal, the light begins to flash brighter and more quickly and draw your attention to the vehicle in your blind spot.
In combination with the lane keeping system Lane Assist, the blind spot sensor can even use corrective steering intervention to warn you within the limits of the system before you change lanes.
For its part, the Rear Traffic Alert assists you when reversing out of a parking space, within the limits of the system. Sensors in the rear bumper monitor traffic passing at the rear of the vehicle. If another car, a cyclist or a pedestrian is approaching you from the side, you will be warned by means of an acoustic signal and an indication on the Infotainment system display. If you do not react in time, the system can mitigate or even prevent an imminent collision by effecting a braking intervention.
The powerful, almost noiseless mechanical unit of the new e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*) is impressive evidence of the performance that is possible with modern electric motors. The maximum power of 100 kW and a torque of 290 Nm right from the first revolution speak for themselves. This allows for formidable acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 9.6 seconds and a top speed of up to 150 kilometres an hour. Acceleration from 0 to 60 km/h takes just 4.2 seconds.
You can also increase the fuel range of your e-Golf by braking. You can determine the extent of the energy recovery by means of a variety of recuperation modes: from maximum delay achieving optimum brake energy recuperation to minimum delay achieving a lower level of energy recovery.
As part of your everyday driving, you can ensure that the range of 300 km (NEDC)*** on your e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*) is more than just a theoretical figure. The two different driving profiles allow you to directly influence the range, acceleration and maximum speed of your e-Golf.
Reaching the maximum range of 300 km (NEDC)*** is easiest in ECO+ mode. ECO mode is the perfect choice for drivers who value agility and comfort. However, if the battery contains enough charge, you can of course drive at higher speeds in both profiles. For example, when overtaking and you need a quick burst of power.
***The stated range is the range achieved during driving cycles on test rollers according to the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). The actual range achieved in realistic conditions differs from this result during normal driving operation and amounts to approx. 200km on average annually and is dependent on driving style, speed, use of comfort features or auxiliary equipment, ambient temperature, number of passengers/load, choice of driving profile (Normal, ECO, ECO+), and terrain.
The options for charging the lithium-ion battery of your e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*) are as versatile as the car itself. If you wish to fully charge your e-Golf using a conventional household socket, the charge time is approximately 17 hours. Installing an optional alternating current wall box with minimum 32A provides you with greater charging capacity and as a result a shorter charging time of approximately 5 hours and 20 minutes. This also corresponds to the charging time at public charging stations using alternating current. The quickest way to charge your e-Golf is using direct current at public charging stations, which charges the battery to 80 percent in just 45 minutes if you are using the optional CCS quick charging system.
Electromobility is even less complicated with the Charge&Fuel Card: more than 1,200 stations belonging to the charging station operators RWE, EnBW and Ladenetz can be used with the card at standard rates. You can also use the card to pay without cash at around 10,800 filling stations in the UTA network. The ideal addition: the Charge&Fuel app.
Who doesn’t want clean air in our cities? The e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*) makes you happy – and the people around you. By choosing the electrically powered Golf, you are helping to reduce CO2 emissions – especially if you charge your car with electricity from renewable sources. This innovative car only needs an average of 12,7 kWh to cover 100 km. People have also begun talking about noise pollution. The quiet yet powerful electric motor in this vehicle is also a contemporary solution to this problem.
The e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*) is equipped with high-quality comfort seats and hard-wearing, long-lasting fabric seat covers in a Zoom design as standard. This will not only appeal to your sense of beauty, but also to your back. These seats will allow you to sit in comfort and relaxation, even on longer journeys.
The typical e-design blue decorative stitching on the steering wheel and gear lever gaiter round off the high-quality equipment in style and give your e-Golf a contemporary look.
The standard Air Care Climatronic air conditioning system in your e-Golf (Power consumption e-Golf, kWh/100 km: combined 12.7; CO2 emissions combined, g/km: 0; efficiency class: A+*) can ensure comfort in the vehicle interior at any time of year. And thanks to the windscreen heating, also included as standard, laboriously scraping the ice off the windscreen in winter is now a thing of the past.
The Premium multifunction display, which is also included as standard, ensures you can always view plenty of key data in condensed form. In place of the classic rev counter, the power meter shows the energy currently being retrieved from the battery and an integrated round dial shows the driver the maximum available electrical power.
The optional ambient lighting casts the instrument panel in the right light and creates a beautiful atmosphere for the blue illuminated decorative sills and side panel sills of the ergonomic cockpit.
An elegant solution: the optional Vienna leather equipment creates a comfortable atmosphere in your vehicle interior. This natural material comes in black, Shetland or pure grey. The perforations reveal contrasting colours: Crystal Crey, Shetland or Ruby Red.
The perforated leather adorns the centre sections of the seats and the insides of the seat bolsters on both sports comfort seats in the front. These can not only be adjusted in terms of height and lumbar support, but are also heated and provide firm support and pleasant comfort. The driver’s seat is also available in an electrically adjusted version. The drawers under the front seats are also practical.
