"Swoosh" sound on deceleration

2017 eGolf; Semi-regularly, when letting go of the accelerator, there is a soft "swooosh" sound emanating from the front (motor compartment?). No driveability issues, no codes. More common when accelerator was depressed for a few seconds, then let go, as opposed to rapid movement. Some sort of servo...

Re: Realistic winter electricity consumption

15km (9 miles) left after a 70 mile trip...getting close! Temperature was -15/-16 C (3 degrees F) for most of the day.

23.7 kWh/100 km (2.6 miles per kWh)

Re: Realistic winter electricity consumption

Unfortunately, VW is not interested in offering CarNet in Canada. I do pre-heat the car while plugged into Level II at home.

Realistic winter electricity consumption

2017/18 e-Golf Cooper winter tires Daily commute: 90 km round trip, rural highway at 90-95 km/h, then either city streets with typical stop-and-go or four lane highway at 100-120 km/h In "normal" mode and with driver side cabin heat on (because I hate driving with a winter jacket on and I like to no...

Re: Manual says motor may not start if temps fall to -27 cel

No issues in Ottawa last winter since February when I got the e-Golf. We had a few formidable cold nights.

Re: Buying a 2018 eGolf with Ontario incentive by Sept 2018

Yeah I'm just going to use my work charger and see how it goes. I would get to charge there for free, and it's 10km from my place. In Ontario, we've also lost the incentive in purchasing and installing an EV charger - so I'll be taking my time getting one and seeing how I make do. Pre-heating (or-c...

Re: Buying a 2018 eGolf with Ontario incentive by Sept 2018

To each his own. Fact is, if you don't buy by September, the business case for an EV will look a whole lot different in Ontario. You can get over that with a buck a beer, so everything will be fine. Nice to see they have the ir priorities straight. Yes, EV technology keeps evolving. Like computers. ...

Re: EXTREME COLD ISSUES

I am in Ottawa as well and picked up my e-Golf in February, so I got a few weeks of truly cold winter weather experience. - the range is shorter (normal) to the tune of about 160-180 km on the Guess-O-meter - no issues with starting, driving, heating or any other systems - the charging process itsel...

Re: What’s a “good” miles/kWh?

About 5000 miles/8000 km on my 2018 e-Golf. I am rarely challenging the range these days so I have little incentive to skimp on crew comfort or go extra slow. I am doing 100-120 km/h (62-75 mph)on the four lane highway, about 95 km/h (60 mph) on the rural highway. I also drive in the city, stop-and-...

Re: Trailer wiring

Thanks kataleen for posting the pics! It may well be as you say - a statement to avoid liability. So, quite clearly, a trailer hitch can be installed. Good to know.

Is that the 114121 Class 1 Trailer Hitch? Which harness did you use?
