Personally the e-Golf looks to be a pretty decent car, too bad it's only available in compliance states, I've never seen one in MN.
What I'd really like would be a concept VW introduced a few years ago, the BUDDe which what supposed to be loosely based on the old VW Microbus, again wake me if/when they'd finally come out with something like that.
Actually the e-Golf is indeed a pretty good car; I took advantage of the rapid depreciation on these and picked up a '15 for about half off list and had it shipped from the NE to Chicago. With our recent mild temps, my range shows 94 miles at 90% charge rate; also the range indicator appears to be much more accurate than the GOM of the first-gen LEAF that I traded in for it. Have driven it about 2K miles since I picked it up in late December. The car has been an absolute blast to drive --- FAST!! (a few sprints to 80+ and it seems to still have more to give). Even though it has LRR tires, corners quite flat and in B-mode off ramps are actually fun. This move may 'orphan' those of us who have one but perhaps some die-hard Golf fans will still want one --- hah! I'll enjoy mine until we see what the Model 3 has to offer ...
