Frequently Asked Questions

Your company will be invited or you can apply and nominate up to five regular business travellers, who fly to Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch for same-day business. Your drivers will then be able to book an e-Golf for their day of travel, free of charge. The keys are collected the Europcar desk and the cars are picked up from, and dropped off to, prime parking spots at all three airports.

There are no fees involved or limits on the amount of trips a driver can book.

The Volkswagen e-Golf will be fully charged and has a range of 190km. AA testing equates this to 150km of “real driving” which is more than adequate for a days’ driving around – and you need to keep this in mind for your Electric Day Pass. Note: Volkswagen plans to bring the face lift e-Golf to the market in mid-2017 which will have a “real driving” range of 230 (to be AA tested once in NZ.)

The program will run through to April/May 2018 in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch airports and is valid for those flying into these airports from any other domestic locations.

How do I pick up my e-Golf?

You can collect the keys for your e-Golf from the Europcar desk at each domestic airport. Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch Airports have all kindly provided convenient car spaces for you to pick up your e-Golf.

The e-Golf operates in a similar way to a petrol vehicle – turn the key all the way round until you hear it “ding-ding” (with your foot on the brake like most automatic cars), then place into “D” and you are away.

Has your company already registered? 

If you are already eligible for the program you can proceed to booking. Easy as that!

What's so cool about the e-Golf?

Firstly, it is just like a normal car – it is built alongside its petrol and diesel siblings, it looks, feels and operates like any other Golf. It has five seats and if you are familiar with Golf already you will feel totally at home. The charging point is exactly where you would expect it (fuel flap!) and as mentioned the facelifted version will have a greatly improved range – so watch this space. The e-Golf is 100% electric which means there is no petrol or diesel on board!
