Volkswagen is introducing the e-Golf Limited Edition in United States which lowers the model's starting price by almost $2,000.

Up until now, the base SEL Premium trim was the cheapest e-Golf money could buy at $35,445 but now those who are interested in getting the all-electric Golf can opt for the Limited Edition model priced at $33,450 or at a monthly lease price of $229. Instead of alloy wheels, the cheaper e-Golf rides on 16-inch steel wheels and comes with halogen headlights instead of LEDs. Moreover, it has lost the leatherette seating surfaces in favor of a cloth finish while the heat-pump system has been eliminated.

The Volkswagen e-Golf is powered by an electric motor generating 115 HP (85 kW) and an instant torque of 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) which allows the model to run the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 10.4 seconds. According to EPA, the electrified Golf can return 126 MPGe city / 105 MPGe highway / 116 MPGe combined and provide a maximum range of 83 miles (133.5 km) before the 24.2 kWh lithium-ion battery runs out of energy.

Despite losing some of the goodies, the e-Golf Limited Edition is still generously equipped as it comes with automatic headlights & wipers, electronic parking brake, navigation system, LED daytime running lights, dual-zone climate control and keyless access with push-button start. Moreover, the base 2015 e-Golf has a rearview camera, front & rear Park Distance Control and support for DC Fast Charging which will fill up the battery pack to an 80 percent capacity in just half an hour.
