As consumer demand for eco-friendly vehicles increases, automakers are offering more electric vehicles. Volkswagen, which is making a significant push for environmental sustainability with the planned release of many electric vehicles in the upcoming years, currently offers one electric vehicle in the United States: the 2018 VW e-Golf. Check it out at Pacific Volkswagen! We proudly serve VW customers in Torrance and the South Bay of Los Angeles!
Gasoline is a major cost of vehicle ownership over the long haul. However, with estimated efficiency ratings of 126 city/111 MPGe (miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent), the VW e-Golf is very kind to your pocketbook. This impressive efficiency can be credited to the VW e-Golf's state-of-the-art electric powertrain, which features a synchronous permanent-magnet alternating current (AC) motor and a lithium-ion battery. The e-Golf has an estimated electric range of 125 miles, which means that for most of the time, you can charge the vehicle at home at night, with it ready to go with a full charge the next day. However, if you’re taking a longer trip and need to charge while on the go, you can do it at a DC fast charging station, which enables you to reach an 80% charge for the e-Golf within an hour.
The 2018 VW e-Golf delivers an exhilarating driving experience. The electric powertrain has a torque output of 214 lb-ft, which enables the e-Golf to accelerate very rapidly. Also, without noisy engine components and a liberal use of sound insulation materials, the e-Golf offers a very quiet ride. And with advanced driving assistance technologies like Forward Collision Warning with Autonomous Emergency Braking, Active Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert, and Active Lane Departure Warning, you can have the utmost peace of mind for safety. Here at Pacific Volkswagen, we invite eco-minded VW shoppers in Torrance, Long Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, and elsewhere in the South Bay of LA to check out the outstanding 2018 VW e-Golf!
