We have a range of electric cars from Volkswagen available on our all inclusive monthly subscription model. Read on for more info on our range and Volkswagen’s history in the EV space.

Why you should drive a Volkswagen electric car

German manufacturer Volkswagen is one of the world’s leading producers of automobiles. They are known for their quality, reliability and for being good all-round cars – and that’s no different for their EVs. A fitting description since Volkswagen translates in English to ‘the people’s car’.

Volkswagen have come a long way since debuting their first electric car in the 70s, with 8 impressive EVs in their range at present and a pledge for all car sales to be fully electric by 2035.

So, if you’re looking for an affordable EV with excellent quality and features, then a Volkswagen might be exactly what you’re after.

How long has Volkswagen been producing EVs?

Electric car production for most manufacturers is a relatively new innovation – but not for Volkswagen. Their first electric car was produced in the 70s – the Elektro Transporter. It had a mere 43 miles range and took 10 hours to charge using a 3-point plug socket. 

Today, Volkswagen have a small, but mighty range of EVs – from the classic e-Golf which made its debut in 2013, to the ID.3 and ID.4.  

Why driving an EV is great

There are plenty of reasons why driving an electric car is great, and benefits not only you as the driver, but also the environment.

While Volkswagen produces great petrol and diesel cars, the benefits of an EV mean they’re the perfect choice for drivers looking to make the switch to electric:

  • There are far fewer moving parts in an EV, which means maintaining them is cheaper and there’s less that can potentially go wrong
  • Charging an EV is quick and simple – by using a rapid charge point, you can charge your EV’s battery to 80% in as little as 20 minutes
  • EVs are far kinder to the environment, and by using green energy to charge the battery they can be completely carbon neutral after manufacture
  • Compared to petrol and diesel, the cost of charging an EV is considerably cheaper than a tank of fuel
