VW Electric Golf Hits UK Market, Price = £25,845 | PlanetSave

The Volkswagen e-Golf, the electric version of the extremely popular VW Golf, has now hit the UK market. After the government’s £5000 Plug-In Car Grant (PICG), the price comes to £25,845. That’s still a bit higher than the Nissan Leaf, which sells for £20,990, but may not be too far off for those who prefer VW and the e-Golf.

VW also offers the smaller and simpler e-Up! in the UK. That one goes for £19,250, and if you’re just looking for a low-priced electric car, is better competition for the world-leading Leaf.

Under the European rating system (quite a bit more loose than the US system), the e-Golf can reportedly get 118 miles per charge, and the fully electric car is said to go from 0 mph to 62 mph in 10.4 seconds. That’s nothing special, but the best part of that is that the car’s instant torque (one of the key benefits of electric cars) allows quick acceleration into traffic, when entering a roundabout from a stopped position, etc.
