MPG

Mpg stands for miles per gallon, and is used to show how far your car is able to travel for every gallon (or 4.55 litres) of fuel it uses. The combined WLTP fuel economy figure provides a general overview of a car's fuel consumption over a variety of speeds and road types.

Insurance Group

Insurance groups range from 1 to 50 and dictates the cost of the vehicles insurance. The higher the group, the higher the insurance will be for the vehicle.

Performance (BHP)

BHP rates the engine performance of vehicles and stands for the brake horsepower.

CO2 (g/km)

CO2 is the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the vehicle in grams per kilometre travelled, the lower the CO2 emissions the cleaner the vehicle is for the environment.

Number Of Seats

The total number of seats in the vehicle.

Road Tax

Road Tax is based upon the CO2 emissions of the vehicle and is split into 13 bands from A to M. The higher the letter the greater the cost of tax paid to drive the vehicle on public roads. In addition to the road tax detailed below, any vehicle that had a manufacturers retail price in excess of £40,000 when first sold, attracts a road tax supplement of an additional £320 per year. This is charged until the vehicle is 6 years old.

Ten Second Review

If you want a PHEV Volkswagen Golf, but you want it slightly more affordably, then you want this car, the Golf eHybrid. It gets an only slightly lesser-powered version of the PHEV powertrain we know from the Golf GTE, but clothes this 204PS package in more conservative bodywork. At an asking price that'll make this variant a very reasonable alternative to a Golf 2.0 TDI diesel for many forward-thinking folk.

Background

For years, Volkswagen offered just one Plug-in hybrid Golf variant and we knew it as the GTE. At the end of 2020, a new generation version of that model arrived on the market, based on the eighth generation Golf and powered by a 245PS version of the usual 1.4-litre TSI-based powerplant. But it was a touch pricey for some folk, hence the arrival of this de-tuned 204PS version of the same powertrain, slightly less sportily-packed in this model, the Golf eHybrid. Adding this variant to the range made sense: the identically engineered SEAT Leon/CUPRA Leon and Skoda Octavia models also offer their customers PHEV motoring with a choice of 204 and 245PS power outputs. And it gets you a substantial price saving over the alternative Golf GTE. Let's take a closer look at this car.

Driving Experience

As with the Golf GTE, the combustion element of this Golf eHybrid model's drivetrain uses a 150PS 1.4-litre TSI petrol engine and a 6-speed DSG auto gearbox. What's changed here is that total output falls from 245 to 204PS but there's still 350Nm of torque, enough to propel this model from rest to 62 mph in only 7.4 seconds, before going on to a top speed of 137mph. Around town, practically all short-distance trips are possible in the Golf eHybrid with zero tailpipe emissions. The car's full electric range of 44 miles on a full charge, allied to the fact that the Golf eHybrid always starts journeys in all-electric E-MODE if the battery is sufficiently charged (except at battery temperatures of below -10??C), means that all-electric running will probably become the norm for many drivers. Moreover, since the Golf eHybrid can also be driven in all-electric mode at speeds of up to 80mph, motorways can also be covered under purely electric power. It is also possible to reserve electric energy during longer journeys in order to guarantee that it is possible to drive in E-MODE, with zero local tailpipe emissions, in a built-up area at your eventual destination. At the start of the journey, you simply enter the percentage of the battery capacity that must be reserved into the infotainment system. The battery doesn't have to be fully charged at the start of the journey for this to function effectively, since the lithium-ion unit can also be charged during the trip via both the TSI engine and brake energy recuperation.

Design and Build

The Golf eHybrid doesn't have the sporty GTI-themed looks of Volkswagen's other PHEV Golf, the GTE - but then you might like its more discreet, conservative vibe. That's based around mid-range 'Style' trim, which comes with 17-inch 'Belmont' alloy wheels and gets body-coloured front air intake fins, with chrome-trimmed lower fins extending across the lower radiator grille. Plus there's an LED light strip extending across the upper radiator grille between the LED 'Plus' headlights. Inside, as on all Golfs, Volkswagen's so-called 'Innovision Cockpit' comes as standard, a fusion of the brand's 10.25-inch 'Digital Cockpit' instrument binnacle screen and the company's 10-inch 'Discover Pro' centre-dash navigation infotainment display. Also standard is a background lighting system which bathes the cabin in a spectrum of 30 configurable colours. Otherwise, things are much as with any other Golf, so you get great build quality and decent space for two adults on the rear bench. As with the GTE, the Plug-in system compromises boot space capacity, which falls from 380-litres with an ordinary Golf to 273-litres. Fold the split rear bench and you can extend this to 1,130-litres.

Market and Model

The Golf eHybrid costs £33,000. You'll want to know how that compares to the price of the 245PS Golf GTE and the answer is that it equates to a useful saving of around £3,700. You still get plenty of equipment though, based around mid-range 'Style' trim. There's Volkswagen's sophisticated Digital Cockpit Pro digital instrument set-up, incorporating a digital instrument screen and a 'Discover Media' navigation system on the centre stack monitor, which gives you media streaming and internet, as well as a DAB+ tuner and a mobile phone interface. Also included is a wireless charging mat, a multifunction leather steering wheel, sports comfort seats; Adaptive Cruise Control and Air Care Climatronic automatic air conditioning and a Keyless Start keyless comfort start function. As well as smart 16-inch 'San Antonio' alloy wheels. Drive features run to Adaptive Cruise Control, a start/stop system with brake energy recuperation, the pioneering Car2X local warning system, LED Plus headlights and LED tail light clusters. Safety kit includes a Lane Assist lane keeping system, Front Assist Autonomous Emergency Braking and Dynamic Road Sign Display.

Cost of Ownership

You'll want to know how the Golf eHybrid's figures compare to those of the Golf GTE. Well, an eHybrid manages 235.4mpg, 21g/km of CO2, which means a BiK rate of only 7%. Plus it has a 44 mile all-electric driving range. For the Golf GTE, which has a 40 mile driving range, the fuel figure is the same and the CO2 reading is 26g/km. A full charge of the battery in the Golf eHybrid is normally performed via an external power supply. A charge port is provided in the front wing on the driver's side into which the charging cable is plugged. Depending on the power source, charging takes place with 2.3 or 3.6 kW alternating current (AC). When supplied with 230volts at 2.3 kW via the normal domestic grid, the battery is fully charged in five hours if it had previously been completely empty. If the power source is a Volkswagen wall box or a charging station with 360volts and a charging cable designed for 3.6 kW, the charging time is reduced to three hours and 40 minutes. The battery charger manages charging fully automatically - all the driver has to do is to connect the plugs. The driver can also control the time at which charging takes place via the infotainment system or using the We Connect app on a smartphone, in order to benefit from cheaper off-peak electricity.
