When you think of the compact hatchback, the car that pops in your mind is probably the Volkswagen Golf, a stalwart in the market for decades. Historically, it’s been a peppy performer that won’t break the bank, and the gas versions all delivered good miles per gallon. But some people are looking to ditch the gas engine for an electric vehicle, and now, the Golf answers the call.
The Golf always offered a great driving experience, and that holds true with the e-Golf. The same fun-to- drive attitude is here and the e-Golf is even a bit peppier because the power is available instantly. It’s not ultimately a huge power output, and some other electric vehicles are quicker, but at 135 horsepower, it still feels like enough power overall.
