The iconic Volkswagen Golf has achieved decades of success — and for the 2019 model-year, it continues to bolster its legacy with its stylish and versatile hatchback design, fun-to-drive nature, user-friendly multimedia technologies, a generous amount of cargo space, and high-level safety. Recently, Good Housekeeping gave the 2019 VW Golf the 2019 Best New Car Award in the Compact category.

2019 VW Golf Wins Best New Car Award

The Good Housekeeping Institute partnered with Car and Driver for the Best New Car Awards, creating a guide to the year’s best cars and rated vehicles on safety, value, handling, design, and technology. The ratings are based upon more than 5,000 miles of driving on city roads, highways, and test tracks. Contributing factors to the Best New Car Award for the 2019 VW Golf include standard driver assistance features, a generous amount of storage space, and roomy back seats.

“Based on our testing, we recommend this sturdy, reliable option for anyone — from a young family in the suburbs to a recent grad in the city.” – Laurie Jennings, Good Housekeeping Institute Director & Lead Consumer Tester

Can Volkswagen EV Batteries be Recycled?

white vehicle in a city with blurred background

Eco-friendly Volkswagen EV Batteries to be recycled

If electric vehicles are supposed to be eco-friendly, then each component of them must be sustainable. Some people have pointed to the batteries of electric vehicles as an issue because they take a lot of energy to produce and cost a lot. However, Volkswagen plans to find a solution to this issue by increasing the number of batteries that are recycled. Keep reading to learn about how Volkswagen is working to create the most efficient system of electric vehicles.


Can Volkswagen EV batteries be recycled?

Yes, Volkswagen EV batteries can be recycled, although not completely. Currently, about half of the battery components are recycled and re-used, but that number should be on the rise. Volkswagen is opening a new plant to focus on the recycling of their EV batteries. With this plant, 72 percent of batteries should be recycled and reused. Eventually, Volkswagen wants to increase that number even further. It may ease your mind a little to know that 99 percent of lead-acid automotive batteries are being recycled, which means that half of nearly every battery on the market today will go back into production. Many of the recycled components become new batteries.

How long will a lithium-ion Volkswagen battery last?

The batteries in an electric vehicle can usually last between 10 and 15 years, which is in line with how long the average person will own their vehicle. At some point, the battery might not be able to power a vehicle itself but might still have a huge energy capacity. To help make use of this capacity and keep batteries on the road longer, Volkswagen is designing a portable charger. This portable charger will be the same concept as a mobile charger for a smartphone, except that it will charge vehicles instead.

How efficient are Volkswagen TDI model fuel economies? 

Volkswagen models with TDI engines are known for being fuel efficient, but just how efficient are they? Today we are going to explore various Volkswagen TDI model fuel economies to show how efficient they are.

Volkswagen TDI model fuel economies 

We are comparing three Volkswagen TDI models from the 2014 and 2015 model years to their equivalent 2019 model year counterparts. You can see below that the TDI model vehicles come out ahead by a little every time. New Volkswagen vehicles are of course very efficient, but even they do not beat TDI models.  

  • 31 mpg in the city and 46 mpg on the highway for the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta TDI (As opposed to the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta which gets 30 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway) 
  • 31 mpg in the city and 43 mpg on the highway for the 2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen TDI (As opposed to the 2019 Volkswagen Golf which gets 29 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway)
