VW delivered the very first e-Golf to a new owner in the USA. The car was auctioned by VW and awarded to the highest bid. The three week auction saw Mr Bruce Oberg place the highest bid of $41,000. That’s a little more than the $36,265 base price.
Bruce takes delivery of the White e-Golf on Friday. He said he was “thrilled that I get to take home one of the first Volkswagen all-electric vehicles.”
The 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf will be launched over the course of the month at selected VW dealers in an initial distribution area limited to California and a handful of Northeastern and coastal states.
Those first launch areas include California, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, NewJersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington D.C.
The e-Golf is part of the redesigned seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf range now on sale in the U.S.
In the UK the e-Golf is available from £30,845 before £5,000 government grant of from £309 / month as a business lease.
