TEST DRIVE: 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf is an electric car for the real world

The e-Golf is powered by a 117 horsepower electric motor with 199 lb-ft. of torque. Although 117 horsepower doesn’t sound like much, consider the fact that you have almost 200 lb-ft. of torque that’s instantly available and you’ll understand why the e-Golf is so much fun to drive. Accelerating from a stop light is so smooth and the silent electric motor makes you feel like you’re driving in a car that costs thousands more. There are also three different driving modes and three regenerative brake modes that you can set. I mostly drove with it either in the Normal or Eco modes, since the Eco+ mode, which will give you the most range, also turns most of the available power off to save the battery.
