The experts at Car and Driver have recognized the VW e-Golf among its 10 Best, and that's just the beginning. In fact, demand for this leading electric car was recently so high that Volkswagen had to double its production.
Below, we look at some of the more impressive features that make a new 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf an ideal upgrade for your daily driver. Once you have an idea of what to expect, come discover this all-electric icon during a test drive with us at Carter Volkswagen in Ballard, serving the greater Seattle area.
2019 Volkswagen e-Golf Configurations
2019 VW e-Golf SE
To offer even more value, this starting model now comes standard with a DC fast charger that provides up to 80% charge in as little as an hour. You'll also find an 8" touchscreen display for entertainment and information along with SD card and USB port. The standard satellite radio with included trial subscription is just one more of the generous features that you'll find on every new 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf model.
2019 VW e-Golf SEL Premium
Additional features in this top-of-the-line model include driver assistance features like Front Assist, Active Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert, Lane Keeping System, Park Assist, and High Beam Control. You'll also find a larger 9.2" touchscreen display with 3D navigation, Gesture Control, and EV-specific functions.
2019 Volkswagen e-Golf Technology & Safety
Clearly, the new 2019 VW e-Golf represents the height of modern automotive technology. This award-winning electric car features LED daytime running lights and taillights, which emit a brighter light while using less energy. Even the standard alloy wheels are designed for better aerodynamics. When combined with other engineering advancements like the radiator shudder and low rolling resistance tires, the resulting coefficient of drag is just 0.27. That means this remarkably advanced car slices through the air with ease for a more economical drive.
This is also an impressively safe electric car. It's modeled off the standard gas-powered VW Golf, which earned top safety marks from independent experts. While a generous variety of driver assist technology is standard on the SEL Premium model, you can also get them as available upgrades at the start of the lineup.
2019 Volkswagen e-Golf Performance
Have you ever taken the wheel of a modern electric car? Unlike gas engines, the electric motors can instantly apply torque to the wheels. The result is a responsive throttle unlike anything you'll find in a similarly priced traditional car. The new 2019 VW e-Golf turns out a phenomenal 214 lb/ft of torque that makes this electric car exceptionally fun to drive and practical, as well. With the battery fully charged, you'll get an estimated range of up to 125 miles. Since the average American commute is roughly 32 miles round trip, you'll have plenty of power left to run errands in this impressive new electric car from Volkswagen.
Of course, this is still a VW Golf we're talking about, so you can count on a level of handling, comfort, and reliability that only comes with a new Volkswagen. Its fully-independent suspension accommodates bumps in the road while sticking to the turns exceptionally well. Additionally, the advanced four-wheel disc brakes are always ready to safely reign the new VW e-Golf in at a moment's notice.
What Makes a New Volkswagen Ideal for Getting Around the Puget Sound?
It's simple really. Volkswagen remains one of the world's largest automotive manufacturers because of a level of quality that the rest of the industry still can't compete with. That's why nearly every new Volkswagen comes with America's best bumper-to-bumper warranty. It's called the People First Warranty, and it completely covers every new VW for six years or 72,000 miles. This leading warranty coverage is also transferable at no cost.
Before you decide on your next new vehicle, we invite you to come experience the value, capability, and economy of the latest Volkswagen models. You'll find that we do things a little differently at Carter Volkswagen in Ballard. That's because we've done away with the old high-pressure tactics that remain so common at dealerships. When you do find your next vehicle in our inventory, we'll even plant trees in your name in the Mountains to Sound Greenway. It's just one more way we want to give back to the community.
