The seventh-generation-based electric Golf will be arriving in Switzerland with an electric motor developing 115 HP and an instant torque of 199 lb-ft, as reports.

The EV will need 11.8 seconds to get to 62 mph from a standing start and will be able to reach an electronically limited top speed of 84 mph. The range is reportedly up to 109 miles, thanks to a 26.5 kWh lithium-ion battery, while charging from a regular household outlet should take at least five hours.

The e-Golf will come with three driving modes to suit driving demands for performance or long range: Normal, Eco and Range. As you've might have guessed, Normal is the standard configuration with the afore-mentioned specs, while Eco and Range are set to limit the cars performance in order to extend it range.

Eco means no more than 95 HP and maximum speed of 74.5 mph, while Range will also deactivate the air conditioning and take the top speed down to just 59 mph. Not exactly thrilling, huh?
