For its aftermost year, though, the e-Golf loses a little bit of range—2 miles, to be exact.
The official EPA ambit for the 2020 e-Golf avalanche to 123 miles, from 125 afar for the 2017-2019 editions of the model. Likewise, ability abstracts for the archetypal change significantly—from 119 MPGe (28 kwh/100 miles) to 113 MPGe (30 kwh/100 miles).

We ran a abiding adaptation of that car and were able to carbon that ambit in fair weather, with some allowance to spare. The e-Golf’s heat-pump arrangement helped abate the bead in ambit in chillier acclimate as well, and while the low-mounted array backpack added weight, it alone seemed to accompany out the abundant ride and administration qualities of the Golf.
At present, the Honda Clarity EV and Fiat 500e are the alone two electric cartage in the U.S. that accept lower rated ranges than the e-Golf. The Hyundai Ioniq Electric is due to get a addition for 2020 from its accepted 124 miles. And the abject 40-kwh adaptation of the Nissan Leaf is rated at 150 afar for 2019.
