The new Volkswagen e-Golf is EPA rated at 125 miles (201 km) according to electrec.co. That is almost exactly the same rating as the Hyundai Ioniq (124 miles/200 km).
Quite astonishing, considering the battery is advertised as 28% bigger (35,8 kWh) than the Ioniq battery (28 kWh).

The total battery capacity of the Ioniq is 31 kWh, the 28 kWh is only the usable part. So the e-Golf has a 15.5% bigger battery. If you calculate the efficiency, it turns out to be 'only' 14.6% less efficient than the Ioniq EV (in terms of km/kWh, mi/kWh, kWh/100km, kWh/100mi or whatever measure you want to use).

Yes, still a big gap. Many brands mention the total capacity of the battery in their advertising and not the usable part. I think Kia and Hyundai are in a minority by giving the usable part.

Step up from Volkswagen, but they need more steps up. Here in Ireland, the new e-Golf is almost 50% more expensive than a better specced, better warranty Ioniq (after the Hyundai scrappage offer). It's only a few thousand cheaper than the Tesla Model 3 is expected to be. Say no more.

they have got to fleece the VAG faithful to pay for all the fines they have to pay for dieselgate :)
