Slowly but surely the Volkswagen e-Golf is becoming available in additional countries.

Volkswagen e-Golf Hits the Stage in LA

Since first launching in Germany, the e-Golf has spread to select European countries.

The UK is the latest to join the list of countries where the e-Golf can now be ordered.

As Electric Cars Report states:

"The all-electric Volkswagen-Golf is now available for order in the UK with starting price at £25,845 on the road (including £5,000 Government grant or £30,845 RRP)."

Converted to US dollars, that's $42,480 after the government's £5,000 Plug In Car grant.

One of the 24 certified VW EV dealers in the UK can take your order now.  First deliveries in the UK will occur in late June.

Back to price, the e-Golf is right in line with the top-level Nissan LEAF in the UK, which costs £25,490 after the government's Plug In Car grant, so we think VW has decided it actually intends to sell the e-Golf in volume.

The e-Golf will go on sale in the US in Q4 2014.
