Forty-eight hour test drives now possible with VW e-Golf


Volkswagen has introduced 48-hour test drives for prospective e-Golf buyers, allowing them to get used to the electric hatchback and its 144 mile range.

Customers are now able to arrange a two-day e-Golf test drive, picking the car up from their local Retailer and dropping it back up to 48 hours later.

The move is the latest in a string of initiatives introduced by Volkswagen to encourage drivers to experience its range of electric vehicles.

Tim O’Donovan, Electric Vehicle Product Marketing Manager at Volkswagen UK, said: “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.  

“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.”
