The company reported overcoming another milestone in sales of electric cars. Almost five years have passed since the appearance of the Volkswagen e-Golf on the market, and it has paved the way for the popularization of the future Volkswagen ID.3 novelty.

Volkswagen is actively developing in the electrified segment. A qualitative breakthrough began after a major scandal with the forgery of data on the environmental friendliness of diesel concern cars. After the dieselgate, a whole line of electric cars in the Volkswagen ID was announced, but before, a fully electric modification of the Volkswagen e-Golf hatchback was launched. And now the company reported the sale of the 100,000th instance.

Production of the model began back in 2014 in Wolfsburg, but later production also began at the factory in Dresden. The jubilee electric car was awarded to the winner at the ceremony. According to Holger B., head of Volkswagen Sales and Marketing in Germany, overcoming the milestone of 100,000 electric cars confirms the potential demand for the Volkswagen ID.3 model.

 Volkswagen e-Golf is equipped with an electric motor with a power of up to 134 horsepower. The battery is capable of providing a range of up to 230 km. Moreover, demand continues to grow, despite a five-year experience in the automotive market.

 The modern Volkswagen ID.3 electric car will partially replace the Golf in the near future. Its production has already begun.
