Volkswagen passes the mark of 250,000…


Jan 3, 2020

In mid-December at the Autostadt, the Volkswagen brand delivered the 250,000th electric car since the introduction of the e-up! in 2013. The brand’s electrified model range has been continually expanded in the following years: e-Golf and Golf GTE followed in 2014, the Passat GTE05 and Passat Variant GTE in 2015. Since 2018, the Passat06 and Tiguan06 have been available as plug-in hybrids in China, where they were followed by battery electric versions of the Bora06 and Lavida06 this year. The best-selling electric car has been the e-Golf with 104,000 units delivered, followed by the Golf GTE (51,000), Passat Variant GTE (42,000) and e-up! (21,000). Half of the customers opted for a battery electric vehicle and the other half for a plug-in hybrid.
