Volkswagen has delivered the 100,000th e-Golf in the Gläserne Manufaktur Dresden. The model was launched in 2014 as the Volkswagen brand’s second battery electric vehicle after the e-up! in 2013. The e-Golf is one of the most successful electric vehicles in Europe and is also popular with customers in other countries, including the USA. The new ID.3 will be assembled in Dresden from fall 2020. In addition, the location is to be made even more attractive as a destination for visitors and customers. The anniversary vehicle painted in Pure White was handed over to Maik Jaehde from Landolfshausen near Hanover. Once he had collected his vehicle he was given an exclusive tour of production.

Production of the e-Golf began in Wolfsburg in 2014. Due to the high demand, the model has additionally been built in the Gläserne Manufaktur Dresden for more than two and a half years. The new ID.3 will roll off the assembly line in Dresden from next fall. Series production of the first model based on the Modular Electric Drive Kit started in Zwickau in November.

The Gläserne Manufaktur’s function as a vehicle collection point is to be expanded, with a specific focus on electric vehicles. Currently, some 1,300 vehicles per year are handed over to customers in Saxony’s capital city. This number is to be significantly increased in the coming years.

The e-Golf has an output of 100 kW (136 PS) and a WLTP range of up to 230 kilometers.
