It is regarded as an important indicator of the suitability of electric mobility for everyday use. Since 2017, the range has been measured according to the WLTP test standard, which is intended to reflect realistic driving behaviour better than the previous NEDC test method.
The e-Golf has a range of 231 kilometers (according to WLTP). In contrast, the Volkswagen ID.3, which will be launched in 2020, can more than double its range. The ID. Family comes onto the market with powerful, scalable batteries that can be configured with different capacities for ranges between 330 and more than 550 kilometers. Every customer can therefore choose the range that best suits their own driving habits.
