Volkswagen continues to expand its Golf lineup while increasing its presence in the electric vehicle segment. This week at the Frankfurt Motor Show VW unveiled the 2015 e-Golf, which is an all-electric version of the new seventh-generation Golf. The e-Golf was one of two electric models that VW unveiled at the show this year – the other is the electric e-up!

The 2015 e-Golf is powered by a 113 horsepower electric motor and a 24.2-kWh battery. Since the e-Golf’s electric motor generates its 199 lb-ft. of torque as soon as you push down the pedal, the e-Golf is able to reach 0-62 mph in 10.4 seconds with a top speed of 87 mph. The e-Golf will also give the Nissan Leaf some competition with its 118 mile range.

Volkswagen hasn’t released the pricing details for the 2015 e-Golf, but it is expected to arrive in the U.S. in early 2015.
