Volkswagen e-Golf for IAA

There are only a few more days until the 2013 edition of the International Auto Show will begin. We will have the opportunity to see a lot of new cars, developed to impress. In the meantime, let us focus on a particular model that will be revealed for the first time at the September event. We are talking about the Volkswagen Golf and e- up!

These are two very efficient electric cars, both with zero CO2 emissions and capable of offering unlimited everyday practicality. As standard elements, the carmaker offered automatic climate control with parking heater and ventilation, radio-navigation system, windscreen heating, LED daytime running lights. The e-Golf has an excellent value of 12.7 kWh outputting an energy price of EUR0.258 per kWh, driving 100 km with the e-up! Costs just EUR3.02 and with the e-Golf is around EUR3.30. The e-motors, gearboxes and the lithium-ion batteries of the two are being developed in Germany. All are intuitive and easy to use.

The new vehicles are manufactured with the same high-volume production systems as their counterparts with combustion engines. The Volkswagen e-Golf receives power from an electric motor capable of generating 115 PS and a maximum torque of 270 Nm. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 10.4 seconds and to reach an electronically limited speed of 140 km/h. The e-up! has an electric motor that generates 82 PS and 210 Nm of torque. This enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 12.4 seconds and to reach a top speed of 130 km/h. The e-Golf has a range of 190 km thanks to the bigger battery in comparison to the other model equipped with a smaller one and with a range of 160 km. We will know more in September, so stay close.
