The electricity used to make yourself a fruit smoothie with a blender, can power the Volkswagen Golf EV for up to 11 kilometers. This is just one of the facts presented with the VW augmented reality app as it showcased the electric vehicle in Hong Kong.

As consumers waited to test drive the energy-efficient Golf, they were shown just how little electricity the car actually uses.
