The 2015 e-Golf is Volkswagen’s first fully electric vehicle for the U.S. market and joins the burgeoning Golf family of versatile, sporty hatchbacks, starting in November 2014 at participating dealers in initial launch states. Although Volkswagen has sold more than 30 million Golf models worldwide, this is the first zero tailpipe emissions, fully electric version of the car. It is also part of Volkswagen’s Think Blue® holistic approach to sustainability.

The e-Golf brings all the benefits of an electric vehicle to the Golf’s “fun-to-drive yet practical” formula, forever ending the idea that compact EVs must be bland. The e-Golf adds a compact electric motor and lithium-ion battery (built in-house at Volkswagen’s Braunschweig facility) to the Golf’s sporty Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) platform. With this modern drive train, the e-Golf offers zero tailpipe emissions and zero trips to the pump, as well as class-leading torque and interior volume.

Volkswagen is improving the ownership experience with a holistic approach to e-mobility. For every e-Golf purchased, VW will invest in carbon reduction projects to help offset the emissions created from the production, distribution, and charging of the e-Golf for approximately 36,000 miles of driving.

In-home charging solutions from Bosch® ensure that preparing your personal charging infrastructure is seamless, while VW’s relationship with Chargepoint® will provide e-Golf drivers with access to more than 18,000 public stations around the U.S., in addition to stations installed at certified VW dealerships.

A comprehensive new Roadside Assistance program and VW Car-Net® e-Golf app† are designed to make owning the e-Golf a thoroughly reassuring, rewarding and enjoyable experience, while a best-in-class eight year/100,000 mile battery warranty add additional piece of mind.
