Just wanted to update everyone that my egolf arrived and I picked it up last week. Even the dealership was surprised, they were expecting it early next year.

Did you end up with a 17 or 18?

There is a shortage of e-Golf in Canada and very long wait times for existing orders. I'm surprised they are not asking over MSRP to maximize their profit on their limited dealer allocations.


In Ontario, dealers cannot ask for more then the MSRP for a new vehicle. This is to prevent dealers from doing exactly as you suggested. The only loophole is to put some mileage on it and then sell it as a used car, however, this would prevent the owner from obtaining the EVIP subsidy.

Alright folks, I just put my deposit down. Expected delivery is June 2018. Here is my info:

2018 E-Golf Comfortline (ie. no options)

Base Price: $36,355.00 (this is the new base price for 2018's, up by $360 from the 2017's, the 2018's come standard with the leatherette seating, this is the reason for the increase. You can no longer get cloth seats).

Admin Fee: $599
Ac: $100
Tire Tax: $15

Those are the only fees.

Total Sales Price: $37,069.00



For what it is worth... I have seen the 2018 order guide and confirmed with the dealer that cloth is still the standard seating for 2018 and leatherette is still an option. We had this conversation when my 2017 order became a 2018 order due to lack of allocation.

vw.ca disagrees. Go build and price an e-golf. No cloth option.

I hear ya... made the same point at the time. End of the day I was able to get a 2017 so I dropped it.
