Expert's Rating

3.25 (Good)

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.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Volkswagen e-Golf

Kimberly Smith
Automotive Editor - October 7, 2019
  • 2019 VW e-Golf is in very limited supply
  • Rebates: $500 credit for recent grads
  • Lease: From $239 per month for 36 months
  • Finance: From 2.9% APR for 60 months

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.

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.

What's New for 2019

Fast-charging capability is now standard on the base SE model. The upmarket SEL Premium gains standard lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams.

Volkswagen Golf

Choosing Your Volkswagen e-Golf

The e-Golf gets its propulsion from a 100 kW electric motor that delivers up to 134 horsepower and 214 pound-feet of torque. In "Eco" and "Eco Plus" driving modes, output is reduced to enhance range. Top speed is limited to 85 mph for the same reason. Like most EVs, the e-Golf uses a single-speed automatic transmission.

According to the EPA, the e-Golf can travel up to 125 miles on a full charge. Efficiency estimates work out to 126 miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent (MPGe) city, 111 MPGe highway, and 119 MPGe combined. The e-Golf wears low-rolling-resistance tires on 16-inch aluminum wheels and aerodynamic body components to aid efficiency.

Recharging the lithium-ion battery pack takes just under six hours on a 240-volt home charger. Thanks to the e-Golf's standard fast-charging technology, an 80 percent charge can be reached in under an hour at public charging stations.

The e-Golf retains the regular Golf's generous cargo capacity: 22.8 cubic feet behind the rear seat, and 52.7 cubic feet with it folded.

Once again, the e-Golf comes in two trims:

SE

The $32,790 e-Golf SE (all prices include the $895 destination charge) comes thoroughly equipped with features like heated front seats with power adjustments, automatic dual-zone climate control, push-button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an eight-speaker audio system, and an 8-inch touchscreen.

The optional Driver Assistance Package ($650) tacks on adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection.

SEL Premium

The SEL Premium starts at $39,790. It gets leatherette seats with full power adjustments in front, LED headlights, and an upgraded infotainment system with navigation, an internal 64 gigabyte hard drive, a DVD player, and a 9.2-inch touchscreen. Cockpit instruments are housed in a 12.3-inch configurable display. The SEL Premium gets the equipment from the SE's Driver Assistance Package as standard, along with lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, and an automated parking system. There are no packages available.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2019 VW e-Golf SE with the Driver Assistance Package provides all the important features at a friendly price. The SEL Premium's high-tech dash displays are impressive, but come at a cost that's hard to justify.
