Volkswagen E-Range Overview

The government’s recent announcement that no more fossil fuel-powered cars will be sold in the UK from 2040 has put fresh impetus into electric and hybrid sales. That’s still a long time away, however the rapid progress of battery and charging technology now gives plug-in electric cars improved range and makes them more economical and cost efficient than ever. Take a close look at our Volkswagen electric and hybrid range, from the city friendly electric e-up! and new Golf GTE performance hatch to Passat GTE, the high performance executive hybrid.

Safety

Volkswagen’s decision to base its electric and hybrid vehicles on existing models means you’ll benefit from proven safety features and impressively high EuroNCAP ratings across the board. A model like the Passat GTE, for example, offers pedestrian monitoring and will even bring the car to a complete and safe halt in the event that the driver is incapacitated. While that’s the top of the Volkswagen electric/hybrid range, even the e-up! has impressive safety technology such as City Emergency braking. 

Design

From the outside, you may not initially notice a difference between the electric/hybrid Volkswagen models and their petrol-powered siblings. Volkswagen uses subtle flashes of blue to signify electric power, including the unique ‘C’ signature LED running lights, and in the case of the Golf GTE, the GTi’s famed red tartan seat fabrics are offered instead as a distinctive blue colourway. The Passat GTE flags up its electric-power credentials with a distinctive and stylish blue strip just above the signature full-width grille. Both the Golf GTE and Passat GTE are available in standard and Advance trim, the latter offering distinctive alloy wheels and other equipment upgrades. 

Technology

Volkswagen offers two pure electric vehicles and two plug-in hybrids. Taking the electric-only models first, the e-up! Has a direct drive electric motor for zero-emissions driving at all times, with a range of 75-100 miles (depending on how much of its performance you exploit) making it ideal for city journeys and the average commute. The new e-Golf, due in 2018, will be more of a crossover between urban and intercity with a range of up to 186 miles and an impressive turn of speed.

If you need to travel faster or further on occasion, the two plug-in hybrids in the range offer the best options. The Golf GTE is unashamedly a performance Golf like the GTi or GTE, using the combined power of a 148bhp 1.4 TSI petrol engine and a 101bhp electric motor to deliver sub 8s 0-62mph times. The Passat GTE, being a bigger car, has a 154bhp 1.4 TSI and 114bhp electric motor for a combined power of 215bhp. The big advantage of both is that they’re plug-in hybrids; so you can charge up at home or the office and travel smoothly and silently for around 30 miles on electric power alone, saving money and the environment. Yet if you do need to tackle a longer journey there’s no range anxiety to combat – petrol power takes over and you can fill up in minutes wherever you are.
