What's the used Volkswagen e-Golf hatchback like?
You could pretty much sum up the e-Golf in one line: ‘It’s like a Golf, just quieter.’ However, while the characteristics of this all-electric version are broadly similar to the normal petrol and diesel models, the ownership experience can be quite different. Mind you, the improving electric charging network means the usability of electric cars is getting better; but has it got to the point where we no longer have to make the comparison with the regular Golf and treat it simply on its own merits?
The claimed range is 186 miles, according to NEDC figures, but Volkswagen suggests most drivers will get a more conservative 125 miles. That being said, a Renault Zoe can go considerably further, even if it is much less refined than the e-Golf, both in terms of wind and road noise.
