Test drove the eGolf and Golf GTE last week

I was down at CENEX LCV (Low Carbon Vehicle) event on Thursday and I got the chance to test drive the electric Golfs.

The GTE was very impressive. I drive a Polo GTI as my normal car and they were very similar except the GTE was much smoother and quicker off the mark.

The eGolf was a disappointment for me though. I’d just come back from test driving the i3, i8 and the GTE and the eGolf didn’t really compare to any of them, it felt gutless and quite basic.

As an everyday car, the GTE would be my choice and I’d swap my Polo for one tomorrow if I could.
