Volkswagen e-Golf will debut together with e-Up! in Frankfurt
That's the expected price of the soon-to-launch Volkswagen e-Golf.
While we don't yet know what its US price will be, we'll at least point out that 35,000 Euros converts to $46,246.
Expensive...yes, but we can't even begin to speculate what price VW has in mind when it brings the e-Golf here. For sure much less than $46K - but probably not all that competitive with other plug-in options.
That 35,000 Euros is the expected price in Germany, which means the e-Golf will cost more than the BMW i3 (34,950 Euro in Germany).
A VW priced head-to-head with a BMW? We're thinking Volkswagen might have some difficulty in selling this electric Golf.
Let's hope that the e-Golf arrives in the US in 2014 with a more reasonable price tag. Maybe in the mid-$30,000 area?
Pricing aside, here's what the e-Golf has to offer:
- e-Golf will go 0 to 62 mph in 10.4 seconds.
- Top speed is 87 mph
- The production e-Golf is equipped with a 24.2 kWh li-ion battery
- Range in NEDC is 190 km or around 75 miles EPA
- Quick-charge option available via DC CCS
