The Volkswagen e-Golf is based on the outgoing Mk7 Golf which, has now been replaced by the eighth generation – Volkswagen refers to this as the ‘Golf 8’. The e-Golf was due to be discontinued as soon as the new ID.3 electric car hits the market, which is expected to be this summer. However, some reports have now suggested that the launch date may be delayed due to current software issues with the ID.3.
According to a YouTube video from nextmove, they talk about an internal document from VW which references that the e-Golf production will continue until September 2020.

Due to the ID.3 being delayed, Volkswagen might want to keep the current e-Golf on the market to at least have an electric car of its size on sale, until the ID.3 is ready.
