Report: No 2020 E-Golf For America. Soory, eh?

Although it had already been announced by the automaker that the cars would be coming to dealers, a new report from CarsDirect says that the 2020 Volkswagen e-Golf is not coming to the U.S. after all.

Last August, VW included the e-Golf in its press release of models and tech for 2020. CarsDirect reports that at the end of October, the e-Golf was removed from that release and VW said that there was no 2020 model available.

The report says that company spokesman Mark Gillies confirmed that the allocation of the 2020 e-Golf was headed to Canada instead, where Volkswagen and Electrify Canada just last week announced a two-year free charging incentive, meaning that the cars would not be sold in the U.S.

It’s quite a surprise since the 2020 e-Golf has already gotten a new EPA rating, slightly lower than 2019 thanks to a new calculation. Though it’s not a significant change at 123 vs 125 miles, still well under most of the competition, but it suggests that this was a last-minute change in plans.

There are 2019 models available, though the e-Golf is generally kept in low volumes meaning that if you want one you may want to act quickly. As far as a replacement, there’s still nothing that would lead us to expect the ID.3 here. The regular Golf is expected to leave the U.S. market soon as well, with just the GTI and Golf R remaining, though the base Golf is set to remain on sale in Canada.
