It's July, 2017, folks. Time for VW to roll out the new hardware with the bigger battery. Interested in some new owners first person reports on it after a couple of weeks of ownership, on the range you get per charge and miles per kwh you are getting.

I'm starting to feel we'll be seeing Tesla Model 3s on the streets before the 2017/2018 e-Golfs

No pictures? No review? Thoughts on the vehicle? Will you lease or buy, or sit on the fence?

Just picked up our new 2017 e-Golf (Tech package and Leatherette package) in Mid Atlantic Blue Metallic this past Monday. Only put on about 400km so far, but my wife and I really love it! I'll post a more detailed review once we have more time with it.

Hello,

I recently got my e-Golf (09/20/2017).

-Comfortline
-Technology Package
-Driver Assistance Package
-Leatherette

-Deep Black Pearl
-FLO Home X5 (Installed 08/19/2017)


I live just outside the GTA and commute into Toronto weekdays for work. VW Canada claims a range of 201km which is within my daily range of driving. I have adapted my driving however, and incorporated the regenerating modes to improve the range by about 25%. I usually drive in Eco mode with the regeneration set at 2. I have just over 1500km on 36-hours charge at 7.2kW. I charge during off-peak hours at a rate of 6.5cents /kWh. The outcome is $1.12/100km when charging and i'm averaging 13.4kWh/100km when driving. I used to drive a tuned GTD with an upgraded turbo and clutch and I really like the torque that the eGolf has.

Do you have a delivery rate? If so you should include that in your charging costs...

For example, I live in southern Ontario in the boonies... So I have Hydro One...

Given the estimated EPA of 17.4Kwh/100km, off peak time for me is 7.7 c/Kwh and delivery factor of 1.076 should cost me ~$1.44/100km.

At least that's how I calculated $28.80/month based on 2000km usage...

I have yet to receive my first hydro one bill. I based it on the new Ontario off-peak rate and the maximum kW usage that my EV charger can draw.
