Electric Alice is our Volkswagen e-Golf, She is white, like a lot of Golfs and she is a 100% electric car. With no gas or diesel engine we rely on charging at home or on the road to keep moving. Why Electric Alice? Alice as in Alice in Wonderland, buying this car was a trip down a rabbit hole to a different world.
Why did we buy this car? We choose an e-Golf firstly because it was a Golf. I like Golfs, they are smallish, well designed and well built. Golf’s fit our lifestyle and fit in our garage without requiring a huge reorganisation of all our stuff. The e-Golf is just a better Golf, all the nasty diesel or gas bits are gone, replaced with an electric drivetrain. We bought the car sight unseen

Power – 100kW or 134 bhp

I am not a journalist, but Jonny Smith is and he has a great review of the e-Golf that reflects how we view the car.
