Your Garden Variety Golf...

Volkswagen wanted and worked hard to obtain the goal of making the e-Golf virtually indistinguishable from its explosion motivated kin...

...the electric Golf works hard at looking like the other members of its extensive family. Cosmetic distinctions are fairly subtle, limited to LED headlamps and running lights, modest badging, special 16-inch wheels, a revised front-grille shutter, a unique rear spoiler, and C-pillar air vanes.

In Normal mode, the e-Golf has the dynamic persona of its internal-combustion siblings, with a firm suspension, limited body motions, better-than-average transient response, and moderately brisk acceleration.

Its more about mirroring dynamics than staying true to a design. Sure the Golf name is iconic, but a hatchback is still a hatchback no matter how much style you try to inject...
