Europe/USA: Electric VW Golf Coming to U.S. in 2013

It will launch in Europe around the same time as well

Volkswagen of America has announced its first entry into the electric vehicle (EV) market, the Volkswagen Golf, which is expected to make an appearance in late 2013.

The 2014 all-electric VW Golf will make its way to the United States and Europe late next year as part of Volkswagen’s goal of making 3 percent of its vehicles hybrids and all-electric by 2018.

Volkswagen has been slow to move into the EV market because it typically focuses on diesel cars as a way of offering automobiles with a good fuel economy. However, VW recognizes that customers want a variety of options, and the automaker wants to meet those demands.

“It’s a fundamental part of our powertrain strategy, but sometimes it’s good to be a little more steady in terms to the approach to the market,” said Jonathan Browning, VW of America’s president.
