Explore the Features Revealed by the 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf Debut
The 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf just made its debut, unveiling a radically revised powertrain alongside standout technologies. Refreshed to deliver revolutionary performance, this is the only all-electric VW offered in the United States, and the company certainly seems to be making the most of it, with everything from power to infotainment taking significant steps forward.
Power and Range
The 2017 e-Golf will be running on an all-new lithium-ion battery, which boasts up to 35.8 kWh compared to 24.2 kWh with the 2016 model. In case you’re wondering, that upgrade really makes a difference — VW is promising a 50% increase in range over the old model, equaling up to 124 mile on a single charge.
That’s going to be perfect for commuting around Schaumberg and Elmhurst, and the city- and suburb-friendly nature of the e-Golf is nicely complimented by its vibrant, engaging drive. Performance-wise, the new model makes up to 134 hp and 214 lb-ft of torque, translating to a vehicle with a 93 mph top speed and the ability to make zero to 60 in just 9.6 seconds.
When you’re all done for the day, you can charge up the new battery in just six hours using the 7.2-kW on-board charger. An available DC Fast Charger can get you to 80% in only one hour.
The 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf debut demonstrated more than the height of electric technology. We also saw a wide selection of first-rate comfort, convenience, and safety features become available, including:
- 9.2-inch Discover Pro Infotainment Screen with Volkswagen Digital Cockpit
- Adaptive Cruise Control

Such features combine with an already impressive list of amenities, including Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, to make every drive feel that much more enjoyable and effortless.
