Q: How much will the e-Golf cost?

A: The e-Golf won’t go on sale in the U.S. until the fourth quarter of 2014, so it is too early to release pricing.

Q. What is the range?

A: The e-Golf will have a range of between 70 and 90 miles, depending on driving style and climate conditions.

Q: How safe is the e-Golf?

A: As safe as a Golf A7. The car offers all the standard safety features expected of a new car, as well as a new feature called the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System, which automatically slows the vehicle when it is involved in an accident in order to significantly reduce its residual kinetic energy. When it comes to the EV drive components, the high-voltage battery is housed underbody in a frame that is designed to protect it.

In addition, the high-voltage electrical system is protected so that in case of an accident, the high-voltage battery is automatically powered down.

Q: Will a pedestrian warning tone be offered for the e-Golf?

A: A pedestrian warning tone is mandatory for the US market.

Q: How does the weight of the high-voltage battery affect handling properties?

A: Although the high-voltage battery weighs 701 pounds, it is installed centrally in the vehicle floor, between the front and rear axles. This offers a low center of gravity with optimal weight distribution and results in very good handling.

Q: Is the amount of space limited by the battery compared to the Golf? Where is the high-voltage battery installed?

A: The electric drive system was developed in advance as part of the MQB platform. So its location does not result in any limitations. The high-voltage battery is mounted in the car floor between the front and rear axles.

This is the safest place in the vehicle, and its low center of gravity also offers benefits in the car’s orientation to the road.

Q. What services does the Car-Net e-Remote app offer?

A: It monitors and controls the charging process, sets the temperature inside the vehicle, gives access to vehicle data, and answers questions about vehicle status, among other functions.

Q. What happens if you run out of charge: does Volkswagen have a roadside assistance package?

A: Volkswagen is offering a class-leading three-year/36,000-mile Roadside Assistance Plan that’s designed to take the anxiety out of “range anxiety”. For instance, if the customer runs out of charge and is within 100 miles of home, VW will deliver the car to the closest convenient source for charging and will pay for the owner to take a taxi to home or work if they decide not to travel with the car. The Plan covers unlimited events, unlike our competitors.

Q. What is the warranty for the high-voltage battery?

A: Volkswagen of America will have an eight-year/100,000-mile battery capacity warranty to maintain 70 percent of battery life.

Q: How expensive is it to fully charge the battery once?

A: Based on assumed energy consumption of 3.2 miles per kWh and an electricity price of $0.12 per kWh, it would cost less than $3.00* to fully charge the high-voltage battery. The cost of driving an electric car can be roughly 60 percent lower* than that of a comparable, conventional gasoline powered car. *Figures calculated by assuming $3.62 as the average cost of a gallon of gasoline and $0.12 per kWh of electricity (Electric Power Research Institute’s 2013 technical report), along with a fuel economy estimate for a gasoline car of 35 mpg overall.

Q. Is Volkswagen offering various charging options?

A: There are several different ways of charging the e-Golf’s battery. The cheapest and easiest solution is to plug the standard charging cable into a 110/120-volt electrical socket, but it will take around 20 hours to fully charge the battery. A more optimal solution is Volkswagen’s recommended 240-volt wallbox for a garage or carport: this charges at 7.2 kW, enabling a completely flat battery to be fully charged in less than four hours.

Volkswagen plans to offer very competitively priced options for wallbox hardware and installation.
