2017 Volkswagen e-Golf Fresno CA
Green technology is all the rage in California, so if you are thinking about switching to an electric vehicle, we hope you check out the 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf. This fully-electric hatchback brings all the benefits of an electric vehicle to the Golf’s “fun-to-drive, yet practical” personality. The design of the e-Golf is similar to other in the Golf family, meaning it features sleek lines and dynamic proportions. However, the new e-Golf offers a little more in the looks department compared to its other Golf siblings thanks to optional energy-efficient LED headlights and a more aerodynamic body.
Under the hood of the new e-Golf you will a 100 kW version of the 85 kW synchronous permanent-magnet alternating current (AC) motor that powered the previous model for upgraded power that is both impressive and efficient. The motor is paired with an updated lithium-ion battery with an increased energy capacity of 35.8 kWh. Together, these mechanics allow the new e-Golf's range increase from an EPA-estimated total range of 83 miles to 125 miles on a single charge.
Because the vehicle is mission the vibrations from a gas-powered engine, outside sounds can sometimes be more noticeable in an electric vehicle. Volkswagen combats this in the e-Golf by fitting the interior with highly sound-absorbent, lightweight materials, creating an incredibly quiet cabin.

Found standard on all trims of the 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf is Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect, which offers users the ability to run select smartphone apps directly on the vehicle’s display through Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink®.
