Volkswagen e-Golf gets EPA rated 83 mile range

According to the EPA, the 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf electric vehicle has a range rating of 83 miles (combined city and highway driving). The test drives were done only in B-Mode which is the maximum regenerative braking mode, and put the e-Golf 1 mile below the Nissan LEAF, and 1 mile above the Chevy Spark EV.

Overall efficiency is rated at 116 MPGe, slightly higher than the Nissan LEAF’s 114 MPGe rating.

Price wise, the e-Golf has a base MSRP of $35,445 which is higher than the Nissan LEAF. Lease pricing of $299 per month, however, is very competitive with other comparable electric vehicles.

According to Volkswagen, the e-Golf competitive set includes the Chevy Volt, Ford Focus Electric, and Nissan Leaf.
