$30,495 | USN Score: 8.3/10 | Range: 125 mi

The all-electric 2018 Volkswagen e-Golf retains the standard Golf hatchback's athletic handling and excellent cargo room but replaces its gasoline engine with a 134-horsepower electric motor. The e-Golf received a battery upgrade in 2017, enabling it to travel an EPA-estimated 125 miles on a single charge.

In our ranking of compact cars, the standard Volkswagen Golf holds a spot in the top quarter of the list. You'll have to look closely to tell the difference between the e-Golf and the regular model. The e-Golf gets unique C-shaped running lights and different wheels.

While the e-Golf doesn’t have the acceleration of a Tesla, it’s no slouch. It leaps quickly and nearly silently from the start line, using the torque from its electric motor to its fullest capability. The EPA rates the e-Golf at 126 MPGe in the city and 111 MPGe on the highway.
