Together with the refershed Golf, Volkswagen also introduced an improved e-Golf.
The changes seen on the outside of the vehicle are the same as the changes done to the standard model of Golf. To discover the novelties of the zero-emission e-Golf, we need to focus on the powertrain. The power of the electric motor has been boosted by 15 kW, so the total power output now equals 100 kW (136 hp). Torque has been increased by 20 Nm (to 290 Nm), enabling e-Golf to accelerate to 100 km/h in 9.6 seconds. Fuel consumption remains the same at 12.7 kWh per 100 kilometers driven.
The battery capacity has been increased from 24.2 kWh to 35.8 kWh, extending e-Golf driving range by around 50 per cent: 300 kilometers in measured by the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) and 125 miles as per EPA in the USA (which is much closer to real.life figures). The battery can be charged to 80 % capacity at a CCS charging station (DC, 50 kW) in a bit over 30 minutes, while charging from a wallbox (AC, 7.2 kW) to full battery takes less than six hours.
Volkswagen e-Golf also became the world's first zero-emission automobile with an infotainment system (with a large 9.2- inch LCD display) that can be operated by gesture control. e-Golf also recieved electronics update, including digital cockpit with adaptive cruise control, the forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and parking assist.
