An e-Golf at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Volkswagen said it would develop more electric vehicles.

¶ A Volkswagen official said on Tuesday that the e-Golf — an electrified version of the company’s subcompact car — would go on sale in 2015 as part of a broader plan to introduce more alternative-fuel models.

¶ It is an important step for a company that is trying to expand rapidly in the United States, but has not kept pace with the market recently.

¶ Marc Trahan, an executive vice president for Volkswagen’s American unit, said VW could follow the e-Golf with more electrified models if demand increased.

¶ “We want to be the leader in the global context, but other manufacturers have gotten a little ahead of the curve,” Mr. Trahan said after a speech to the Automotive Press Association here.
