2015 VW e-Golf Providence RI

In the last several years, a pretty significant move has been made industry-wide to create a viable all-electric vehicle. Now, with the release of the 2015 VW e-Golf near Providence RI, it’s finally here. Amazing German engineering, iconic Volkswagen performance, and stylish Golf sensibility have combined to create a vehicle worthy of recognition in the form of recognition as Motor Trend’s Car of the Year, and it’s arrived at Speedcraft VW. So, care to take a closer look?

It’s Here: The e-Golf is ON THE LOT at Speedcraft!

Goodbye to Gas

When the e-Golf was announced, the commercial seen below made the rounds to the delight of auto enthusiasts everywhere. However, it was more than just an entertaining novelty. Say farewell to gas stations, say farewell to oil changes, say farewell to paying attention to gas prices. With the e-Golf’s range of 83 miles per charge and over 18,000 charging locations, you’ll get there and back again with ease, only stopping at service stations to wipe off your windshield.

With three driving modes to choose from, the e-Golf is always up to the task at hand.

Legendary Performance

We must admit, it was a logical question to ask: will the e-Golf still drive like, well, a Golf? To that end, VW devised a 115-hp electric motor, which responds with 199 instantly responding torque. And, with three driving modes–Normal/Eco/Eco+–available depending on the situation, the e-Golf is well suited to all driving conditions.

A True VW, Through and Through

For all of the demand for a great all-electric vehicle, to its credit, VW didn’t rush this. They made absolutely that they’d gotten the e-Golf just right before it was time for production, and this is evident in its style and execution. The e-Golf features model-exclusive features such as an electrically heated windshield and full LED headlights and daytime running lights, while exceptional amenities such as a rearview camera, a Media Device Interface, and a Navigation System with proximity sensors and voice control are standard as well. And, with its VW Car-Net Telematics system at the ready to integrate the e-Golf’s functions, it’s smart in all the ways you’d expect as well.
