Already 100,000 Volkswagen e-Golfs Sold

While the company has already raked in over 30,000 orders for the ID.3, it also celebrated last week, the delivery of the 100,000th e-Golf, the second electric vehicle to be offered by VW after the e-up!. Launched in 2014, the e-Golf has been successful in all corners of the globe and certainly helped pave the way for the ID division that was to come.

At the outset, the model was produced at the company’s Wolfsburg facility, but demand was such that the company started to produce it as well at its Gläserne Manufaktur plant in Dresden – which allowed for attaining the impressive hundred-grand milestone. That Dresden plant, by the way, is devoted entirely to the production of electric vehicles.
