Volkswagen ends production of e-Golf to make way for the ID.3

VW eGolf final production

Volkswagen has announced the final e-Golf has rolled off the production line in Dresden, Germany, where 50,401 units have been manufactured since 2017.

Since its launch in 2014, Volkswagen has produced 145,561 e-Golfs at two different manufacturing facilities in Germany. The e-Golf is one of the most popular electric vehicles in Europe, most notably in Norway and its home country of Germany.

The e-Golf wasn’t quite as popular in North America with just 18,000 units were delivered.

With the e-Golf out of the way, the Transparent Factory in Dresden will shift gears to begin producing the ID.3. Over the next few weeks workers will convert areas of the factory to meet the requirements of the Modular Electric Drive Kit (MEB), which the ID.3 is based upon.

The ID.3 began production in Zwickau late last year, and has already been delivered to more than 28,000 customers. Its rollout was not without some bumps as major software issues forced delays of the first deliveries.
