Possible end for the Volkswagen Golf in North America for 2020?

According to rumours, Volkswagen US will withdraw the Golf from the North American market and keep only the performance versions, the GTI & the Golf R.

It seems that the standard Volkswagen Golf and the SportWagen will not see the light of day in the United States next year, and probably even in North America. According to information gathered by the website Motor1.com during an event organized in California by Volkswagen US last week, only the Mk8 Golf R and GTI will be offered to consumers in 2020.

In the absence of comment from the manufacturer, we can only stipulate the reason that would lead to such a decision. However, when analyzing the sales of Volkswagen US, we can quickly see that the standard Golf represents only a small percentage of all Golf sales. In 2018, only 6,642 standard Golfs were sold in the United States while about 3 times more GTIs were purchased.

Today, a spokesperson from VW US informed InsideEVs that the 2020 e-Golf will not be in the lineup. Only the fate of the AllTrack would remain to be determined. Considering our strong interest in wagons, fans, like us, of the Golf AllTrack could hope to see its return. However, with the possible end to the Golf SportWagen, which the AllTrack is based on, doubts continue to hover.
