2017 Volkswagen e-Golf

2017 Volkswagen VW e-Golf electric Golf in Mississauga, Toronto, and the GTA

All Golf and all electric, the e-Golf is the first 100% electric Volkswagen in Canada.
Meet the future of e-mobility in your favourite hatchback.

The second generation of Volkswagen's all-electric family car, the e-Golf, is finally here. The new lithium-ion battery offers almost 50% more energy capacity, from 24.2 to 35.8 kWh, resulting in a driving range of about 200 kilometres on a single charge. The electric motor itself delivers 134 hp and 214 lb.ft. of near-instant torque, improving performance and acceleration, while maintaining the same level of efficiency.

A host of cold weather-related features are standard: heated windshield, heated front seats, and an auxiliary heat pump. In addition, the e-Manager allows every e-Golf driver to set a desired departure time and temperature to warm or cool the interior while still connected to the electrical grid. These features will help maximize comfort and range in winter and minimize the unique challenges faced by every electric vehicle in Canada.

Getting your e-Golf ready for any adventure is easy with DC Fast Charging. Simply plug it in to a fast-charging station and you’ll be ready to go in as little as 30-45 minutes—which means less time waiting, and more time driving.

As the first Golf in Canada to feature a refreshed, series 7 design, the e-Golf features a bold, confident design to match its bold, confident performance. Suffice to say, this electric hatchback will stand out for all the right reasons.

Whether you’re charging in the comfort of your garage, at a designated fast-charging station, or just plugging into an outlet outside your office, keeping your e-Golf charged and raring to go is simple and convenient. In the e-Golf, energy efficiency is at your fingertips. Literally. Choose between three driving modes - Normal, Eco, and Eco+ - and use as much or as little energy as you want, when you want.

If you need a hatchback that’ll go the distance, this one’s got you covered. With a range of 201km*, and a suite of cold-weather features that’ll keep you going even when it’s not, one charge is all it takes to be set for wherever your day’s current takes you.

Electric vehicles feature motor efficiency of up to 96%, quiet operation, zero harmful emissions or greenhouse gases while driving, and require minimal additional maintenance. Even though the technology is advanced, you’ll find owning an electric vehicle is simple.

From easily swiping through songs with the gesture control feature, to enjoying dynamic range predictions courtesy of the “Range 360” tool, you’ll soon see the 9.2-inch Discover Pro is our best centre display yet. Because understated design speaks volumes, we’ve added blue accents throughout the car, and a unique badge that’ll tell you this Golf is electric with a tasteful whisper, rather than a raucous yell.

Both driver and passenger can set the temperature for their side of the cabin. When your passenger leaves the vehicle (or if you don’t have a passenger to begin with) their temperature zone is disabled—saving you energy without you lifting a finger. It’s just one of the many ways the e-Golf works to take you farther while using less.
