e-Golf First Drive...

Comes to us from the boys at Car and Driver. The gold is...

Electric motors give everything they’ve got from the first rpm, but there’s not as much motive power on tap as in the standard Golf’s 1.8-liter gasoline turbo four. Torque is about even (199 lb-ft for the e-Golf, 200 on dinosaur juice), but the gas engine has a big edge in horsepower, 170 versus 115. So while the e-Golf gets out of the blocks without hesitation, arriving at 60 mph takes a claimed 10 seconds or so. On the other hand, VW says the e-Golf can reach 30 mph quicker than a GTI, which would mean about 2.5 seconds.
