Self Study Program 530 – The e-Golf

VAG SSP 530. More detailed information about the technology used and the product characteristics will be revealed over the course of this Self-study Programme.

After the production of more than 30 million vehicles with combustion engines, the Golf is now being introduced for the first time with a standard electric-only drive.

The e-Golf can be identified by its distinctive, arc-shaped LED daytime running lamp in the front bumper, and by the LED headlights which are being installed as standard for the first time.

The high-capacity, high-voltage components and the technology used for the remaining assembly groups guarantee both safe and convenient mobility. The electric drive motor boasts a power output of 85 kW and develops a maximum torque of 270 Nm from standstill. It reaches 100 km/h after 10.4 seconds. Improved aerodynamics and much lower tyre rolling resistance compared to the combustion-engine Golf contribute to the low consumption, amounting to just 12.7 kWh/100 km. This is equivalent to a diesel fuel consumption of 1.3 litres.

Depending on the vehicle payload and driving style, the range is between 130 and 190 kilometres, powered by a nominal lithium-ion high-voltage battery energy of 21.2 kWh.

Caution! Hazardous electric voltage!
The e-Golf is a battery-powered electric vehicle. It features a high-voltage system with a voltage totalling 323 volts. This voltage level can be fatal. Only qualified employees may perform work on this vehicle. The minimum qualification required is an electrically instructed person.
