Torque that's ready when you are.

The e-Golf is proof that going electric doesn’t have to mean compromising performance. When you combine performance engineering with electric power, it’s not just responsible, it’s also agile, versatile, and fun to drive.


Hit the pedal and you’re off and running. The e-Golf is responsive, agile, and so much fun we’ve even made a film about it.

We’re big on the extra mile.

Going to great lengths describes more than just the distance an e-Golf travels between charges. It’s a philosophy that applies to the entire car.22

*2019 e-Golf EPA estimated range is 125 miles. Actual mileage and range will vary and depend on several factors including driving and charging habits, accessory use, temperature and topography, battery age, and vehicle condition. Battery capacity decreases with time and use. See Owner’s Manual for details.

“The Volkswagen e-Golf SE is proof that affordable battery-electric efficiency and sport driving don’t have to be mutually exclusive.”

It really is a work of remarkable vision.

Great looks aren’t everything. So we equipped it with advanced features designed to help you with the tasks of everyday driving.

Don’t pass up a chance for greater peace of mind.

Driver Assistance features can help give you more confidence on your drive.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Light Assist
  • Lane Assist
  • Park Assist
  • Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking
  • Front Assist
  • Rear Traffic Alert

White vehicle approaching blue vehicle on the road and with available Adaptive Cruise Control, seen from above.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

Available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps the vehicle maintain a preset speed and distance from the car in front of you. When activated, if the car in front of you speeds up or slows down, the sensors can detect the change and your car follows suit.34

Blue vehicle approaches white vehicle from behind on the left. White vehicle waits to change lanes.
Blind Spot Monitor

When driving, if you attempt to change lanes, the available Blind Spot Monitor can help alert you to cars that may be in your blind spot. The Active Blind Spot Monitor (available when vehicle is equipped with Lane Assist) on select models can also counter-steer within the limits of Lane Assist to help keep you in your lane if you attempt to change lanes when a vehicle is in your blind spot.

Brights dim as white vehicle approaches blue vehicle at night.
Light Assist

Available High Beam Control (Light Assist) helps provide better visibility on dark roads by turning on your high beams at certain speeds. A camera mounted at the base of the rearview mirror turns your high beams on when conditions warrant it on dark or poorly lit roads. It then turns them off again if another car approaches or drives in front of you.35

Vehicle drifts out of its lane, then corrects its position.
Lane Assist

When moving, the available Lane Keeping System (Lane Assist) can sense if you start to drift into another lane without using the turn signal. Within the limits of the system, Lane Assist can help steer to help keep you in the current lane.36

Vehicle parallel parks
Park Assist

The available Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist) can determine if a parking spot is big enough for your Volkswagen. Then it will help steer the vehicle into the space, either parallel or perpendicular. You operate the accelerator, brake, and shifter; it does the rest.37

Vehicle moves to avoid cars as it exits its parking space
Park Distance Control with Maneuver Braking

Available Park Distance Control has sensors that can help you back out of or drive into a parking spot. Audible signals and the optical parking system on the display indicate how much space you have behind and, on some vehicles, in front of the vehicle when parking. If you get too close, the system beeps as a warning. Maneuver Braking (included with Park Distance Control) can apply emergency braking force automatically to help mitigate and in best case prevent collisions with stationary obstacles while you maneuver the vehicle in reverse gear.

White vehicle approaching blue vehicle on the road and alerts as it gets too close.
Front Assist

The available Forward Collision Warning (included in Front Assist) system can help monitor traffic and can alert you acoustically and visually to a potential front-end collision with the vehicle moving ahead. If it senses that a collision is imminent, Autonomous Emergency Braking (included in Front Assist) can support the driver with increased brake pressure or, under certain circumstances, it can apply the brakes automatically. The available Pedestrian Monitoring (included in Front Assist) feature can warn of pedestrians crossing in front of the vehicle and, under certain circumstances, can brake automatically to help prevent or mitigate the outcome of a collision with a pedestrian if the driver doesn’t respond adequately to the warnings.38

White vehicle backs out of parking space as blue vehicle approaches from behind, waiting till it passes till it can exit.
Rear Traffic Alert

The available Rear Traffic Alert comes in handy when you’re backing up. It has sensors that can alert you to vehicles crossing in your path when in reverse, and can even help brake the vehicle if needed.39

Convenience is also within your range.

The e-Golf isn’t a nice electric car. It’s a nice car. And that means convenient features that help keep you comfortable and confident.

Pure White e-Golf
Design Not just clean. Sparkling.
The iconic. At its most current.

With its distinctive hatchback silhouette and sleek lines, the e-Golf is all Golf on the outside. With a heart of pure electric innovation on the inside.

Open hatchback reveals cargo space with three suitcases neatly packed in
Uncompromised cargo space

We designed the e-Golf as not to invade the 52.7 cu. ft. of cargo space with rear seats folded and adjustable cargo floor lowered. After all, comfort and cargo shouldn’t be mutually exclusive.

Safety A lot goes in before you do.
Safety features inside and out.

We see a bright future ahead. That’s why the e-Golf is outfitted with a number of important safety features like a steel safety cage and standard Rear View Camera System.
