What is your guess-o-meter reading for range on a full charge these days, vs what you are actually getting?


Haven't done too many long drives since the weather improved, but most days I'm seeing 84 miles and I'm getting around that. If it's warmer and I don't have the HVAC on I'm seeing 92.

Edit: It's 75 today (first time since I have owned the e-Golf), and now I'm seeing 105 miles. We'll see!


105 miles on the GOM is doing quite well, at that temperature, all things considered. It will do a little better at 82 to 84F if you can barely crack the windows while driving, and keep the fan and AC off. Maybe 110 to 112. The battery like the higher temps slightly, and the air is less resistance, the warmer it gets, as well as the whole drive train gets up to operating temps a whole lot quicker when in the low 80's . Just a whole bunch of cumulative little things that add up to more range. This is my second spring that I've observed the same as you, albeit about a month earlier here in So Cal.

Annual maintenance is free for 2015's, but not for 2016 e-Golf. However most of the VW salesguys did not know about that when they started selling the 2016 and gave out information that annual maintenance is free also. VW did a poor job training their salesguys when the 2016 came out.

I just got my 20k service and was also surprised to see that it was free. They gave me an estimate for about $100, but then when it was done it turned out to be free. So it seems like (as usual with the eGolf), they don't really know what's going on.
