It’s the first electric vehicle for Volkswagen, but with specs like this, the e-Golf won’t be the last. It’s one of the better affordable EVs on the market, plus it doesn’t have the sort of styling that screams to the world that it’s a green machine. But you’ll know it’s true when you skip past the pumps.

Why is the Golf such a popular option for Volkswagen fans? It could be the attractive yet subtle styling, the fact that it offers impressive features for an economy model or the excellent interior space.
