Volkswagen e-Golf Is Over In The US, Thanks In Part To Canada

Volkswagen focuses remaining e-Golf allowances for North America to Canada for 2020

  • Whatever allocation was intended for the US will be passed on to Canada.
  • Information confirmed in Canada.

This bit of news, which we’ve managed to confirm, isn’t entirely surprising. Canada has had a larger soft spot for the Volkswagen Golf than the US, where the Jetta once reigned supreme, and this applies to the zippy and cool e-Golf – what’s left will be reserved for Canada.

In fact, the MK8 Volkswagen Golf will come to Canada likely sometime in mid-2021 but it will not land in the US. There, only the Golf GTI and the Golf R are expected to make an appearance whereas we will get them all.

Although it has not yet been officially announced, the 2020 Volkswagen e-Golf will not be sold in the US. This decision could be related to slower than desired sales and/or to imminent arrival of the Volkswagen ID.4, or VW’s first all-electric vehicle for North America, by year’s end. This SUV will launch the ID family of EVs in the US and breaking all ties with the past, such as the MK7 Golf, could be part of a larger plan.

In the meantime, the Volkswagen ID.3 is still making headlines.
