2015Volkswage-e-Golf

Volkswagen's first foray into the realm of all-electric cars is now making it world debut in (where else?) the only U.S. state guaranteed to have it. The 2015 e-Golf bowed this week at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, revealing a handful of significant exterior- and interior-design changes compared with the regular Golf, but also an entirely new, zero-emissions powertrain. The plug-in hatchback becomes the first VW in the U.S. to get standard LED headlights, as well as complementary C-shaped LED daytime running lights, a unique grille with blue accenting and aerodynamic 16-inch alloy wheels with low-rolling-resistance tires. Inside, the primary differences are additional blue accents and a power display in the instrument panel that shows the state of the electric powertrain; that's in addition to a gauge that shows how much energy remains in the battery and a color display showing the range. Available upgrades include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, faux-leather upholstery and a touch-screen navigation system.

The e-Golf's electric motor uses a lithium-ion battery and makes 115 horsepower and 199 pounds-feet of torque. It's teamed with a single-speed transmission and good for a 10.4-second zero-to-60 mph time and 87 mph top speed. The automaker says recharge time is less than four hours on a 220-volt outlet, 20 hours on a conventional household outlet and just a half-hour at a DC fast-charge station.

Nice that VW is finally offering a plug-in electric instead of another rattling diesel. Now offer it in all 50 states, and lose the floor shifter. With a one speed transmission you can save weight by converting to electric buttons for drive, reverse, engine braking and park. If the range can match some of the leaders this will be a nice driving EV.

upto I looked at the bank draft which was of $7508, I be certain ...that...my friend actualie erning money in there spare time at their computer.. there aunt had bean doing this for only about twenty months and recently cleared the mortgage on their mini mansion and got a great Mazda. official website http://www.jobs64.com

Diesel has it's place in the US automotive landscape. Great for long range highway cruising and great for towing. VW is a large enough automaker it should cover diesels, electrics, hybrids, etc...
