Technologically, its design sets new standards: its weight has been reduced by 100 kilograms, and fuel consumption is up to 23 percent lower, depending on the engine. The seventh generation of the Golf established a new type of digitized display and operating elements in the segment and brought even more assistance systems in the luxury class to the compact class. No other model has ever been more closely networked with its environment.
Another milestone was the electrification of the compact class in 2014: the all-electric e-Golf2 already had a range of around 190 kilometers at that time. Shortly afterwards, the Golf GTE3 with plug-in hybrid (PHEV) drive was launched.
The Golf is and remains the most built Volkswagen model of all time, with a total production of more than 35 million units. About six million Golf VII have left the assembly line to date.
