2017 Volkswagen e-Golf Official Information
Chevrolet’s $37,495 Bolt EV providing 238 mile range and fresh relative to its oppositions, is overshadowing other bargain priced electric automobiles. Not only is it brand-new, but its extent range far exceeds that of the only somewhat less exorbitant Nissan Leaf (107 miles per charge), the Ford Focus Electric (100 miles) and Volkswagen’s e-Golf, which until now has only been able to gather an EPA-certified 83 miles of range.
For the 2017 version year, that illustration strokes up by 50 proportion, reaching to 124 miles. Though will threatens the Bolt's leadership, but it does show that Volkswagen, like Nissan and Ford, is striving to capture up. The EPA-certified illustrations for the Nissan Leaf and the Ford Focus EV also are notably high than those for last year’s processes.
The Golf’s enhanced steering extent comes by path of a brand-new 35.8-kWh lithium-ion artillery pack, versus the 2016 e-Golf’s 24.2-kWh artillery of the same chemical collection, while Bolt’s artillery sports an energy ability of 60.0 kWh. Volkswagen also has made the previously elective 7.2-kW onboard charge standard, conveying that the recharge time using a 240-volt consumes less than six hrs. A DC swift charger that can fill the artillery to 80 proportion of its ability in about a hour is elective on the base SE and standard on the SEL Premium. Volkswagen also enhanced the electric engine, profiting a more 19 horsepower and 15 lb-ft of torque for brand-new totals of 134 horsepower and 214 lb-ft of torque. The new attractiveness shares more than an second from the e-Golf’s zero-to-60 mph moment as per VW, reducing it to 9.6 seconds. Given that a 2016 e-Golf knocked 60 mph in 9.4 seconds, Volkswagen’s illustrations are likely blimpish, and yet this is still no whee-Golf. The automobile’s top speed increases to 93 mph, although as is the case with any EV, steering at top speed quickly emptying the artillery pack.
