An upcoming battery upgrade will increase the VW e-Golf’s range by almost 30 percent, Volkmar Tanneberger, the company’s head of electronic development, told Autoblog at the 2016 CES.

The capacity of the e-Golf’s cells will be increased from 28 amp hours to 37 amp hours, and no physical changes to the pack design will be necessary. “It’s the same package but just with the next generation of cells,” said Tanneberger.

A 30 percent increase would boost the e-Golf’s EPA-estimated range from 83 miles to about 108, equal to that of the 2016 Nissan LEAF.
