VW Offering UK Customers 48-Hour Test Drives With The e-Golf

Volkswagen customers in the UK are now able to arrange two-day test drives with the e-Golf, picking the car up from their local dealership, and returning it 48 hours later, instead of just after a few hours.

This strategy was implemented so as to encourage buyers to experience the German automaker’s range of electric vehicles, like the e-Golf currently, priced from £30,340 ($38,561), or the upcoming ID.3, which is expected to arrive next year.

In the UK, as a zero-emission vehicle, the e-Golf is exempt from both Congestion and Ultra Low Emission Zone charges, while its road tax is currently rated at zero pounds. Also, if you’re a company car driver, you’ll be interested to know that the e-Golf will have a Benefit In Kind rate discounted to just 2% beginning with April of 2020.

“The charm of the e-Golf is it has all of the talents of the familiar Golf hatch, with the simple addition of an electric powertrain,” said VW UK marketing exec, Tim O’Donovan. “What the new 48-hour test drive offers is the chance for people to learn first-hand how simply the e-Golf will fit into their lives. The two-day experience lets people challenge the e-Golf with all sorts of scenarios particular to their car needs, and for the e-Golf to demonstrate its numerous qualities.”

As for performance. The e-Golf boasts a synchronous electric motor with up to 136 PS (134 HP) available almost instantly. It also has a range of up to 144 miles (231 km) in the WLTP cycle.
