2015 Volkswagen e-Golf gets priced in the U.S. image

Volkswagen has officially announced the official starting price of the 2015 e-Golf in the United States, where the model will arrive at select dealerships this November.

The 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf can be named just about anything but not cheap, considering the fact that it will be more expensive than the Nissan Leaf, with its starting price of 35,445 USD, without the 820 USD destination and handling charger and the government rebates. Some of the goodies found on the model include the LED headlights, the 16-inch alloy wheels, the dual-zone climate control, the leather wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, rearview camera, 5.8-inch infotainment with GPS, Bluetooth and so on.

Power to the 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf is being provided by an electric motor which is rated at 115 HP (85 kW) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque, backed up by a 24.2 kWh lithium-ion battery. VW says that the 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) acceleration is made in less than 10.4 seconds and the average range stands at 70 – 90 miles (112 – 145 km). In just 30 minutes, the battery can be charged up to 80 percent thanks to the Combined Charging System, but a fully charged can be made anywhere from 4 hours to 20 hours, depending on the 220V / 110V connection.
