VW has changed the order they are going to introduce their electric cars: now the VW Golf will be the first model to enter electric mass production.
According to the DPA, one of Germany’s independent news groups, the first mass-produced electric vehicle (EV) from the company will be the e-Golf scheduled for 2013 followed by the e-up! and the e-Jetta.
This scheduling departs from previous reports stating that VW would release a small test fleet of e-Golfs followed by the e-up!, then a mass-produced e-Golf and finally an e-Jetta. The DPA points to corporate circles as the source for this information adding that the Golf is the company’s most important product and, fittingly, should be first in line for the electric setup.
