Charging takes five hours from a regular power outlet, and three driving modes of Normal, Eco and Range are offered with the e-Golf. Normal is the standard setup, Eco limits output to 95 hp and top speed to 75 mph, while Range deactivates the a/c and further limits top speed to 59 mph. Distinguishing the EV from the internal combustion-powered Golf is the near silent engine note, revised bumpers designed to reduce wind resistance, and newly styled headlights. Inside a new MMI displays graphics that inform drivers of what’s going on with the car. Look out for the e-Golf at Geneva where it will debut before hitting showrooms at the end of the year.
