Volkswagen e-Golf finds more buyers than ever before, despite fundamentally being unchanged.
There was a time in 2018 when it seemed that Volkswagen e-Golf sales in the U.S. would gradually decrease to the point of no return (to be finally replaced by some new MEB-based EVs).
However, as we can see on the chart below, this year especially, e-Golf sales are stronger than ever – 4,233 were already sold over ten months (more than in all of 2015 – 4,232).
Also, the monthly results are at its highest level – 689 in August, and 2he nd best result in October (637). Moreover, the all-electric Golf in recent months accounts for one in a five Golf sales (we must, however, add that the Golf is getting a new generation – ICE and PHEV versions – which might generally lower Golf family sales).
Volkswagen e-Golf sales in the U.S. – October 2019
As the ID. models are still quite some time from first deliveries in the U.S., the e-Golf remains the only all-electric Volkswagen on the market.
One of the most interesting things is that e-Golf is not that far from Nissan LEAF these days (9,998 YTD), which is however available in two battery versions (40 and 62 kWh).
e-Golf is also one of the top models in Europe: 19,680 YTD at #6, just behind the LEAF: 24,488 YTD at #5.
Sales in the U.S. are relatively low compared to Europe, as since 2014 the German manufacturer delivered just 17,647 (less than in ten months of this year in Europe).
