Volkswagen e-Golf review

Volkswagen's facelifted the Golf range, and with it comes a new electric e-Golf. AOL cars got behind the wheel of the eco-friendly choice in Volkswagen's range to see if it makes sense over a petrol or diesel model.

What is it?

Though it looks just like a regular Golf, this is the electric-only version of Volkswagen's popular hatchback. It's aimed at the kind of driver who'd like an electric car, but doesn't want to shout about it – the e-Golf flies under the radar. It also offers the same benefits as any other Volkswagen – namely, a premium brand image and quality feel.
