This week the very last e-Golf was produced in Dresden to make way for the new ID 3 and ramp up production. The outgoing e-Golf was based on the last generation Golf Mk7 and when the Golf 8 was announced, Volkswagen said that there won’t be a new e-Golf as the ID.3 takes that place.
The e-Golf launched back in 2014, had 118 miles of range and to date 145,561 cars were produced. The new ID.3, which launched this year has around double the range of the e-Golf, due to it’s bespoke platform on the MEB.
“The end of the e-Golf is also the start of the final preparations for the ID 3. In just a few weeks, we will be opening the next chapter for the Transparent Factory. “
