The new Volkswagen e-Golf Film

In a world premiere at 2016 Automobility LA, Volkswagen of America, Inc. presented the latest generation of the VW e-Golf. Compared to its predecessor, the 2017 e-Golf offers an improved range, more power and new features. For 2017, Volkswagen is using a new lithium-ion battery whose energy capacity has been increased from 24.2 kWh to 35.8 kWh. The new battery increases the range by about 50 percent, with the aim of a driving range of up to 124 miles on a single charge. The 7.2 kW on-board charger is now standard on both SE and SEL Premium trims, which enables the battery to be fully charged in less than six hours at a traditional charging station. When equipped with DC Fast Charging (optional on SE, standard on SEL Premium), the battery can be charged to 80 percent within an hour at a DC fast charging station.
