10 Good Reasons To Buy A Volkswagen e-Golf

Thinking of buying an electric Golf? It's a big decision and a big shift in thinking. Let us help you with a few facts that may surprise you!

  • You could drive from Milton Keynes to Sheffield on one charge - The new e-Golf goes further between charges than ever before. There's a 50% increase in range, and up to 186 miles (New European Driving Cycle - NEDC) is now possible. 124 miles is a conservative real-world guide.
  • It can be recharged in less than an hour - The new lithium-ion batteries can be charged from empty to 80% full in just 45 minutes with a rapid charger.
  • It's exempt from vehicle excise duty (VED) - You can save money.
  • It's still got power - With 136PS, it is an electric car with power and speed.
  • It has more equipment that its rivals - Stand spec includes Discover Nav Pro, parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, dual zone automatic climate control, App Connect and full LED headlights.
  • You pay less VAT - You only pay 5% VAT on the electricity used to recharge the e-Golf at home, much lower than road fuels at 20%.
  • You could get a big discount off the list price - The government offers an Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) grant of £4,500 to buyers of any new electric car. If you have a qualifying older diesel model to trade in (of any make or model), Volkswagen will make a further £5,500 reduction in the price to take you to a total of £10,000 off the RRP of £32,190.
  • It's free to drive in London - There's no congestion charge and many towns and cities offer free parking for electric cars.
  • It's cost efficient for businesses and business users - There are some significant tax benefits for businesses and company car drivers who choose the e-Golf, including qualifying for a 100% first year allowance.
  • It's still a Golf - The e-Golf has all those famous Golf attributes - it just happens to be electric!
