Volkswagen announced that its brand new 2015 e-Golf was officially rated by EPA at an impressive 126 MPGe city, 105 MPGe highway and a 116 MPGe combined. Moreover, the maximum range is 83 miles or 133 km. According to Volkswagen, the e-Golf is the most efficient car in its class for the 2015 model year.

So, if you want one, you should know that the 2015 VW e-Golf starts at $35,445 in the United States, excluding the $820 destination charge. As standard, the vehicle arrives with an electric motor that produces 115 hp and 199 pound-feet of torque as well as a 7.2 kW onboard charger and a 24.2 kWh lithium-ion battery.

Using a single-speed EQ transmission, the e-Golf is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 10.4 seconds, while top speed is 87 mph or 140 km/h.

With the optional 240-volt wallbox, the battery of the e-Golf can be charged in less than four hours, while with a charging cable that can be plugged into any standard 110/120-volt electrical socket charging takes about 20 hours.

When equipped with a standard Combined Charging System (CCS), which allows the vehicle to use the SAE standard DC fast charging infrastructure, the battery can be charged to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.
