The current EV story at VW

Talk about electric vehicles is all the rage at the moment. It’s also enraging numerous would-be buyers as in Canada, the trend is buy now, pick up in 12 or 18 months from now. Oddly, this is not the case for most EVs as manufacturers inexplicable have inventory.

One manufacturer that would love to sell you an EV is Volkswagen. Like a few others, they want too but they can’t. The number of consumer in line for the e-Golf, one of the better electric cars available in 2018, far exceeds the supply. If you tour their website, the delays in delivery are clearly indicated.

Those that want an e-Golf might be happy to learn that there will be a 2019 model year, and possibly even a 2020. The reason is that said e-Golf is selling so well that it would be foolish to not take advantage of the demand. That, and the fact that because the almighty United-States have shown no interest in the upcoming I.D. Concept inspired 100% electric hatchback.

The take-away is that you’ve still got maybe two years to put a deposit on an e-Golf. As well, the I.D. Crozz CUV electric vehicle is expected sometime around 2020.
