No matter your motivation, driving an electric vehicle is a smart choice. Should you be concerned with lessening your carbon footprint, an all electric vehicle is sure to help you meet your goal. If your motivation is monetary, an electric vehicle will see you spending less at the pump (not to mention possible rebates). If you are just interested in an intelligent, fun to drive car, L'Ange-Gardien Volkswagen has the electric vehicle for you. The 2018 e-Golf, Volkswagen’s first 100% electric vehicle in Canada, packages all of the above in Volkswagen’s perennial favourite hatchback. With dynamic performance, the 2018 e-Golf is shockingly good.
100% electric, the 2018 e-Golf emits zero harmful emissions and zero greenhouse gases. Never has nothing meant more. The e-Golf, with its Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) technology, has a motor efficiency of up to 96%, and a whisper-quiet operation. Also, with fewer moving parts, there is a minimal amount of extra maintenance. The 2018 e-Golf also utilizes a technology called regenerative braking — in which every time you brake it actually charges the battery. Watch your energy consumption with the e-Golf’s three driving modes, Normal, Eco, and Eco+, for precision control. And if you’re worried about what the Canadian winter throws at you, worry no more. A humidity-controlled, heated windshield eliminates the need for a blower or fan, and the heat pump takes surrounding air and waste heat from the drivetrain and filters then recycles it into the cabin.
These are just a few aspects of the design that goes into the 2018 e-Golf. As sleek a hatch as you’ll find anywhere, the e-Golf takes the Golf’s signature styling and gives it a boost. Unique badging and accents will let those observant enough know that you’re doing your part for the environment, without being showy about it. And the C-shaped LED daytime running lights are the perfect unique touch on a one-of-a-kind vehicle.
If you’re more interested in performance than looks, odds are you are familiar with Volkswagen’s flagship hatchback, the Golf. The 2018 e-Golf proudly carries on the Golf’s tradition with a 100 kW electric motor that features 214 lb-ft of torque. And with a range of 201 km, you can feel confident that you can enjoy the drive for as long as you want between charges.
Speaking of charging, you’ll notice the savings in no time when you don’t have to stop at a gas station — ever. FLO Home™ charging stations are quite affordable, and at roughly 1/8th the cost of gas, you’ll happily forget what paying for gas feels like. As an added bonus, the Quebec government offers many different discounts and rebates for those purchasing electric vehicles as well as charging stations, meaning you’ll be able to save even more.
No matter your reason for going electric, the 2018 e-Golf won’t disappoint. Power and performance, comfort, a miniscule carbon footprint, in addition to exceptional value and savings, makes the 2018 e-Golf the total package. Come by L'Ange-Gardien Volkswagen today, to take a peek at the Golf of the future.
