Volkswagen e-Golf Home Charging Guide

For anyone seeking a solid-on-the-road, mid-range all-electric vehicle which will fit in with the crowd, the Volkswagen e-Golf is still a major contender - even if it's no longer in production. After all, it's a Golf but electric. Real-world range is close to 144 miles and you're still getting a high-quality, spacious hatchback.

Charging the Volkswagen e-Golf will take around five hours if you're using a standard 7.4kW home charge point. If you use a public rapid charger then you can get an 80% recharge in 36 minutes.
