The 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf represents an interesting entry into the compact electric vehicle space: not only is it the most efficient vehicle in its segment, but it also proudly carries VW’s fun-to-drive DNA.
Recently, VW auctioned off the very first e-Golf to be sold in the United States just ahead of its official on-sale date, but that doesn’t mean that you can walk into any Volkswagen dealership and get one just yet, since VW is first rolling out the e-Golf in select launch states. For now, you can only buy the fully- equipped SEL Premium trim level of the e-Golf in the following eleven states:
- New Jersey
- New York
- Rhode Island
- Washington D.C.
As with electric vehicles from other automakers and brands, VW will likely work to expand that list until its first electric is available to buy in every state. Expect that to take place over the next 12-24 months.
