CityEV Fleet Golf GTE

As one of our PHEVs Peter drives a Golf GTE, CityEV staff have PHEVs and run them for business and home use on a day to day basis; the excellent Golf GTE both earns it’s keep on our fleet and is a pleasure to drive. Of course our fleet cars are part of our commitments to EV drivers and driving,¬†enabling us to gather valuable information about the practical day to day use of EV charging.

Golf GTE

The VW Golf GTE is a very good car!

Peter comments that the Golf GTE is a very good car; having driven a new Golf GTE since March, (replacing a diesel Passat), the Golf GTE is very enjoyable to drive, and a very practical every day car. The Golf has all the usual Golf qualities, but although very simple to drive and dynamic, is indeed a sophisticated piece of engineering, featuring a really practical car, allied to a really practical electric drive system, which delivers smooth power and a good performance.

The electric only range, around 31 miles is ideal for day to day commuting; most weeks we do not use the engine/fuel at all, pleasurable driving with true economy! …. and efficiency, all with a minimal pollution impact and for day to day driving zero emissions. The motor is enough to meet all our daily requirements, even towing a trailer with the clever, built in tow bar.

The ultra-smooth Golf …. and¬†with style and complete practicality.
