Top 5 Electric Vehicles
The Volkswagen e-Golf isn’t the first electric vehicle to look like a ‘proper car’ (that honour goes to the Nissan Leaf, which you’ll find later in this list). However, it’s arguably the first electric vehicle to add a dash of familiarity to zero-emissions driving. The e-Golf looks like a regular Golf: only the special alloys and closed front grille mark it out as something different. Well, that and the near-silent performance. Boot space takes a manageable hit to accommodate the batteries, but there’s still plenty of room for a pair of big suitcases.
In What Car? real-world range testing, the e-Golf achieved 93 miles between charges. It’s well kitted out, too—in addition to everything you get on a standard Golf’s SE Technology trim, you also get the Golf’s best infotainment package, plus heated windscreen, LED headlights, and a rapid-charging inlet.
