VW will rename the VW Golf EV into VW E-Golf when it’s launched in Europe in 2013.
According to Car & Driver, the model will likely be called the E-Golf when it is launched in Europe in 2013. It is slated to ride on the MQB platform which has also been developed to accommodate a plug-in hybrid powertrain. This likely means we can expect another eco-friendly variant a few years after the E-Golf is introduced.
Additional information is limited, but the model will likely feature a powertrain that mimics the Golf blue e-motion concept.
