Get back to us when you are ready to return your e-Golf at the end of your lease. Things will be quite different by then, more to your performance liking. Volkswagen literally translates to "People's Car". When you want performance, look to the Audi and Porsche lineup.
You don't say
I basically got it because I wanted to save the other white one for "fun", not getting beaten too much in the city. And yet I honestly can tell you I'm just as happy driving both... That's a glowing recommendation for the golf ! A little more power from 40-80mph (or more range if you prefer not to use the power) and VW is onto something that'll sell like hotcakes !
Thumbs up. Well, with a Sunday driver like that P car... it's a little tough to live up to anything that does what that one does in the corners. Ever since the 356 started, Porsche has constantly had the next generation, 911 and 912's evolving. How many years now has the 911 and it's iterations been around now?
IMHO, the e-Golf 1st gen has been the sleeper. I'm sure I'll be pleasantly surprised when the Mk VIII e-golf comes out, and you can be certain VW folks read posts in here to get a feel for what the market desires, including your 40-80 mph wish. But that's going to take a bigger electric motor that will take much more current... 40 to 80 mph is in the realm of horsepower needed, it already has plenty of torque. I think it's going to happen, it's just a matter of when, or how soon, that the market is willing to pay for it.
