The fact that VW has just celebrated selling a quarter of a million cars that are powered either by electric or electric/petrol hybrid cements exactly where the car industry is heading.
Before you know it every car on the road will have electric goings-on in it!
Lexus are well on their way in this department – Click here to read more about that
A quick summary of what’s going on with VW‘s efforts.
In mid-December at the Autostadt, the Volkswagen brand delivered the 250,000th electric car since the introduction of the e-up! in 2013
Various models have been added to their electric offering over time and looks something like this
- 2013 – e-up!
- 2014 – e-golf and our favourite the Golf GTE
- 2015 – Passat (and variants) GTE
- 2018 – Passat & Tiguan plug-in hybrid available in China
- 2019 – Bora & Lavida (China only model)
The best selling model from all of these has been the e-golf selling 104k units worldwide. The Gold GTE sold 51k units in comparison.
I reckon if they styled the e-golf like the GTE, they’d sell twice as many for sure.
