    Thread: Wait for ID.Crozz or get 2019 e-Golf now?

      For some reason the 2020 e-Golf lost 2 miles of range than before. Which is a bit odd.

      For its last year, though, the e-Golf loses a little bit of range—2 miles, to be exact.

      The official EPA range for the 2020 e-Golf falls to 123 miles, from 125 miles for the 2017-2019 editions of the model. Likewise, efficiency figures for the model change significantly—from 119 MPGe (28 kwh/100 miles) to 113 MPGe (30 kwh/100 miles). Last year’s model was rated 126/111 city/highway, in MPGe, while the 2020 model gets 122/104 MPGe.

      Spokesman Mark Gillies confirmed to Green Car Reports that there is no change for the 2020 e-Golf, versus 2019, and that it comes down to changes in EPA testing procedure. So real-world range between vehicles of the two model years should be identical.

      I always felt a bit skeptical about it and wouldn't buy one yet due to fears of less than favorable resale value.

      The resale for these is going to be very interesting once the ID.3 and ID.4 hit the showroom floor. It's not going to be ideal for people who already own one.

      They could be good value for someone looking to buy an EV. The only issue would be with maintenance as VW shifts to the ID line.

      This is very interesting, VW CEO Herbert Diess is claiming that the ID.3 will be 40% less expensive to build than the e-Golf.

      FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Volkswagen’s (VOWG_p.DE) new ID.3 electric vehicle will be 40% cheaper to build than the electric version of its Golf model, Chief Executive Herbert Diess told investors on Monday.

      The battery in the new ID.3 can be used to add structural rigidity to the body and the modular layout of the battery allows for advantages in packaging and economies of scale.

      “If you focus on an electric platform, all in all it accounts for a 40% reduction against the predecessor electric Golf,” Diess said. “Most of it from cells and the battery system. Around 5-10% comes from dedicating an entire plant to electric vehicles.”

      This cost reduction is one of the reasons that Volkswagen is confident it can shift from making combustion-engined to electric cars without eroding the company’s profit margin, VW said.

      Not true. It's been available in Washington for almost a year, and has been available in Oregon far longer than that..
      Several VW diesels come and gone. Miss my 2014 Passat TDI but the buyback was too good.

      I considered an e-Golf very seriously before I leased my Niro PHEV. While the latest range increase was welcome, it's still not enough for my needs. Sure, my daily use would be no problem with 125 miles of range. But I drive to my parents on occasion, and the round trip is right around 100 miles. Add in the range reduction for HVAC and colder weather, and I can't make the round trip without a charge. The ID.4 appears to meet my needs quite well. My lease is up May 2022, so timing should be quite good to move into an ID.4, assuming the price and equipment are acceptable.
