It's coming.

From mid 2016, Volkswagen NZ will bring in a number of pre-production units for both the 100% electric eGolf and the plug in hybrid Golf GTE. These models are planned to be on sale in mid 2017. Volkswagen NZ is committed to showing long term electric vehicle leadership in the New Zealand market. Register your interest to be the first to know and experience these new Volkswagens.

“Throughout 2016, Volkswagen NZ will be working closely with the factory and Government, major corporates, and our customers to establish a suitable electric vehicle strategy for New Zealand. This work will take some time as we evaluate the market opportunity for electric vehicles in New Zealand with a realistic aim of a full market introduction in mid 2017, where we will take advantage of the new technology available in the updated Golf range”


The eGolf is 100% electric - powered by lithium ion batteries and the electric motor can produce 85kW of power. As with most electric vehicles the eGolf is very quick off the mark reaching 100kmh in 10.2 seconds. This is an electric car that is designed as part of the highly successful Golf family and is produced alongside the more conventionally powered Golf. The real world driving range of the eGolf is 130 - 190 km.

Golf GTE.

Based on the petrol performance GTI this is a plug in hybrid (PHEV) that achieves a standard fuel consumption of 1.5 l/100 km. Powerful, sporty and responsive, combining GTI dynamics with e-Golf sustainability and economy. Drive up to 50 kilometres when fully charged in all-electric mode, and up to 580 miles when petrol and electric are combined. With its stylish arched LED daytime running lights the GTE has its own distinctive character – sleek, contemporary and unmistakably Volkswagen.
