Volkswagen just announced the pricing details for its first electric car to be offered in the United States! The 2015 e-Golf will offer a 115 horsepower electric motor and a 24.2 kWh lithium-ion battery – and it’s set to arrive in November with a price tag starting at $36,265 before any federal or state tax credits are applied.

The e-Golf is based on the seventh-generation VW Golf, and it looks almost identical to its predecessor, which is a good thing if you’re looking for an EV a bit more inconspicuous than the Nissan Leaf. VW estimates that the vehicle will have a driving range of 70-90 miles depending on driving style. When it comes time to recharge it, the e-Golf has a 7.2kW onboard charger, and a fast charger can re-charge the battery up to 80 percent within 30 minutes. The 2015 e-Golf also comes standard with 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, LED headlights, Bluetooth, a navigation system and heated front seats.

With a staring price of $36,265, the VW e-Golf is more expensive than its closest competitor, the Nissan Leaf. VW does say that it has partnered with 3Degrees, a renewable energy services provider, to invest in carbon reduction projects to help offset the emissions created from production, distribution and charging of the e-Golf for up to approximately 36,000 miles of driving.
