Volkswagen introduced the first generation of its Golf hatchback in the 1970s, and the model name has been in continuous production ever since. For the seventh generation of the Golf, first shown in 2014, Volkswagen took a future-forward stance by offering a fully electric version, the e-Golf.

The first e-Golf came out for the 2015 model year, but that car claimed an EPA range of just 83 miles, making it only suitable for short trips. For the 2017 model year, shown here, Volkswagen improved the drivetrain substantially, getting the range up to 125 miles and swapping in a more powerful drive motor.

Beyond a few aesthetic touches, the e-Golf looks very similar to the standard, gasoline-fueled Golf.

During our testing, we achieved well over the e-Golf's stated range of 125 miles. However, very hot or cold weather or a heavy load of passengers and cargo would likely diminish that range.

The e-Golf comes in SE and SEL Premium trim, with about a $7,000 price differential between the two. Government incentives can bring the price of the e-Golf SE down to around $20,000.
