It is my understanding that it is not a 2018, but rather a 2017. The YouTube video producer mis-identified it as a 2018 and InsideEVs took their word for it.

It's a 2017. This is the demo car at the EV discovery centre on finch -> https://plugndrive.ca/electric-vehicle-discovery-centre

Don't mind the green one in the photo. That was VW's corporate demo when the centre opened in May. The eGolf was absent from the centre from May to a few weeks ago.

I'll be going to the centre soon to allow my wife to compare the i3, Bolt, Leaf and eGolf to confirm I made the right choice.

I was thinking the same thing but since I was posting from my phone I just went with it. It is a shame he didn't educate himself with the car more prior to driving it. I mean, comparing it to a City Golf, a 10 year old City Golf! That was a little comical. It would have also been nice if he was more up to speed on the regenerative modes as well and he didn't even mention the normal, ECO, or ECO+ driving modes.

I think those e Golfs are the most popular at all the times!
