2015 Volkswagen e-Golf Glendale CA
As more people become aware of their own carbon footprints, and see the gas prices rise year after year, electric vehicles are quickly becoming a popular option. The 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf Glendale CA is VW's first EV, but with all the acclaim it's been receiving, it certainly won't be the last. Critics love it for the same superior quality which the gasoline-powered Golf has, and with the battery pack positioned under the vehicle, it may even offer better balance. Acceleration is competitive with other EVs in the same class and strong brakes provides excellent stopping power.
The miles per charge is rated at 83, but Eco and Eco+ modes can be used to extend this further, and driving style is just one factor that can drastically increase this number, especially when considering the regenerative braking feature. Cargo capacity and interior volume are in line with the gasoline-powered Golf as well, meaning drivers of the 2015 e-Golf get the same experience inside the cabin, with a quieter and more fuel efficient ride. Standard features are also improved in this model, with an electrically heated windshield, rearview camera, touchscreen navigation, Car-Net functions and dual-zone climate control topping the list of features found in the limited-edition model.
