Volkswagen's e-Golf will arrive on dealer lots in November

Volkswagen has announced official pricing for its upcoming e-Golf all-electric vehicle. The German automaker in mid-March announced its intentions to bring the vehicle to the United States during the fourth quarter of 2014.
 
The e-Golf will have a base price of $35,445, and that’s for a well-equipped SEL Premium trim vehicle. The e-Golf is powered by a 115hp, 199 lb-ft torque electric motor and a 24.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The e-Golf features an onboard 7.2 kW charger, and also offers a standard Combined Charging System (CCS) which is capable of restoring the vehicle to an 80 percent charge in roughly 30 minutes.

 
Range for the vehicle is estimated to be between 70 to 90 miles depending on your driving style, which is a bit less than the 115 maximum range that was thrown around back in March.
 
VW also says that the e-Golf will come standard with all-LED lights (a first for a U.S. market VW).

 
The e-Golf is priced quite a bit higher than the class-leading Nissan Leaf ($28,980) and roughly in line with the slow-selling Ford Focus Electric ($35,170). The much smaller Fiat 500ewhich Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne loathes — is priced at $31,800. All of these prices are of course before a $7,500 federal tax credit and any applicable state credits/rebates.
 
The VW e-Golf is set to go on sale in November.
