e-Golf's interior is standard fare, resembling the petrol powered Golf's design closely.
e-Golf provides three driving modes and four levels of regenerative braking so drivers can adjust performance and efficiencies as desired.
e-Golf like other electrics, uses a single speed transmission powered by the electric motor.
e-Golf is powered by an all electric 85 kW power-train with range figures of between 130-190 km depending on driving mode.
The e-Golf uses an 85 kW - 114 hp electric motor paired up to a 24.2 kWh lithium ion battery.
