The 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf, the all-electric version of VW's compact Golf, combines hatchback utility and European road manners with gas-free operation. This makes the e-Golf a natural choice for buyers unwilling to sacrifice fun for efficiency.
Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
Very limited availability:
The 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf is extremely difficult to find in stock and only sold in select states, namely California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New York, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington, D.C.
Offers from VW can vary by region and end October 31, 2019. Examples listed here are for Western States and include a great lease option.
Heads up: Following this model year, the brand will introduce a slew of new EVs under the "ID" brand. No word yet on whether it will keep making the e-Golf.
Bonus for grads:
Recent college graduates can get a $500 credit when financing through VW Credit. To be eligible, you'll have to have graduated within the past 24 months and have proof of employment.
Although there are no standard rebates currently, purchasing the e-Golf does qualify you for a $7,500 tax credit. In places like California, you can also save an extra $2,500 via the Clean Vehicle Rebate (CVRP).
Lease from $239/month:
Leasing a 2019 e-Golf SE this month starts at $239 per month for 36 months with $2,999 due at signing, which includes an allowance of 10,000 miles per year. That comes out to an effective cost of $322/month, which is an excellent value given the vehicle's MSRP.
Get 2.9% APR:
Financing rates start at 2.9% APR for 60 months.
Behind the scenes, dealers are being given a $4,500 incentive on 2019 model financing; however, you may need to shop around to find a dealer willing to pass along the full amount.
This ranks as an excellent deal based on our expert analysis of: vehicle price, length of lease term, amount due at signing, monthly payment, etc.
