Considering all the issues surrounding their diesel engines, Volkswagen has decided to go long in electrification, vowing to have 30 EV models on roads by 2025. The German automaker says the e-Golf can hit 60 mph in a little more than 10 seconds, but it feels faster with its instantly-available 199 lb-ft of torque. The e-Golf is available at participating dealers in California, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington, D.C. *Note: The EPA has not posted data for the 2017 e-Golf.
