4 Reasons the E-Golf is a Great Commuter Car

January 3rd, 2016 by


Now that electric vehicles are starting to gain in popularity, more and more people are deciding whether they want to use them as commuter cars. If you are looking for a new car that is a joy to drive to work, consider whether these four features of the e-Golf sound right for you.

Save Money on Gasoline

Since the e-Golf is an all-electric vehicle you never have to spend money on gasoline. Perhaps even more importantly, you never have to stop at a gas station while you’re rushing to work in the morning.

Instead of filling up with gas, you rely on electricity that you get from an outlet at home. Volkswagen estimates that a fully charged e-Golf gets the equivalent of 126 mpg in the city and 105 mpg on the highway.

Good Range for Commuters

A lot of people worry that all-electric cars don’t offer the range that they need to get to work and run their errands. The possibility of a dead battery leaving them stranded on the road is enough to convince them that they should avoid electric vehicles.

The e-Golf will change your mind. According to Volkswagen, the e-Golf has an estimated 83-mile range per charge. Unless you drive 40 miles to work (and another 40 heading home), you aren’t going to run out of power.

If you’re uncertain, spend a few days tracking your mileage. If you are like most people, you will find that you hardly ever drive 80 miles in a day. That makes the e-Golf a good commuter car for you.

Quiet Ride

Whether you’re driving to work or going home at the end of a long day, your commute can cause a lot of stress. The e-Golf can help lower that stress by giving you a quiet ride that helps you tune out the rest of the world.

Feel free to turn on the stereo and enjoy your favorite music, audiobooks, or podcasts. Instead of focusing on the stress of driving, you can turn your commute into a relaxing part of the day when you don’t have to worry about all of your other responsibilities.

Plenty of Cargo Room

The Golf has long been a popular car among people who want the amount of cargo space that a hatchback offers. Even though this is a modified version, it still offers nearly 23 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. That gives you plenty of room for carrying all the materials that you need for an important presentation. It will also serve you well when you need to take the kids to soccer practice.

The e-Golf actually has the exact same amount of cargo space as a regular Golf. If you feel that the Golf is a good size for you, then you will also like the electric version.

While no car can match every driver’s needs, the e-Golf is a versatile all-electric vehicle with a good range, excellent efficiency, and other noteworthy features. Before you decide which vehicle to buy, set aside some time to test drive an e-Golf. It could be the perfect commuter car for you.
