VW has released first details and photos of the VW e-Golf. A must read!
The front-wheel drive electric Golf VII will feature an electric motor capable of developing 115 hp (85.76 kW) and an instant torque of 270 Nm (199 lb-ft). Thanks to this setup, the e-Golf will need 11.8 seconds to complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run, before reaching an electronically limited top speed of only 84 mph (135 km/h).
The lithium-ion battery is mounted under the rear seats and has a capacity of 26.5 kWh which should be enough for a range of up to 175 km (109 miles). Charging from a regular household outlet will be done in at least five hours.
