Volkswagen Golf R to Launch in the United States

Friday, December 26th, 2014

 

As many of you already know, Volkswagen of America recently announced its plans to begin accepting the first 500 pre-orders for the 2015 Golf R on January 8th. The German automaker expects to sell out quickly which is why they though it would be fair to open the enrollment online and give everyone a fair chance at reserving their Golf R model. Volkswagen announced that the first 500 models will be identical and feature a Lapiz Blue Metallic exterior with bi-xenon headlights and 19-inch Cadiz-style aluminum wheels with summer performance tires. The cars will come equipped with GPS navigation, a Fender Audio System, Park Distance Control and a DCC Adaptive Damping System.

Friday, December 19th, 2014

 

The new 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf is e-lectrifying – this isn’t your typical electric car. It’s an all-new member of the Golf family. So you know it’s just as fun to drive, has the same versatile cargo space, and looks every bit as iconic. And with an electric motor under the hood, you know it’s going to put the “e” in efficient. Volkswagen calls it a “technological marvel wrapped in a Golf body.” The first Volkswagen electric vehicle in the United States has a powerful motor that delivers an impressive 199 lb-ft of torque. That’s more torque than the Nissan LEAF, and almost as much torque as our standard 1.8T Golf engine. On a single full charge, the e-Golf can range up to 83 miles, getting an EPA-estimated 116 MPGe. Best of all, every single mile in an e-Golf is a zero-tailpipe-emissions miles, you’ll feel good for all the right reasons. If you would like to read the full article please click on the link below:
