VW concentrating on their new I.D. line of EV's ...

http://autoweek.com/article/car-news/2020-vw-golf-heres-what-expect?utm_source=DailyDrive20180129&utm_medium=enewsletter&utm_term=headline-center&utm_content=body&utm_campaign=awdailydrive

The powertrain option that the next Golf is not likely to offer will be the e-Golf -- this model is expected to disappear as VW focuses on the I.D. lineup, which will be nothing but electric vehicles. Expect to see an all-new hatchback sometime after 2019 that will pick up the role of the four-door electric hatch; this should be among the first of the I.D. models.

So far, they have said they will not be selling the I.D. to the US. They will bring the I.D. Croz and the Buzz here, though.

The eGolf is sweet but I wouldn't mind an EV that's a bit larger. I am looking forward to the next generation that will have a decent range and fit a family of 4 for a weekend trip.

I think a dedicated platform is required for an EV to have a big enough battery to get decent range.

Anybody know if there will be a 2018 e-Golf. If there will be a 2018 e-Golf, when will it appear?

Their sales figures look pretty consistent... 200 to 350 or so sales per month. Whether VW calls it a 2018, or the serial numbers just continue, and the month and year of the build date keep on being built, despite 2017 being long gone, remains to be seen. I wouldn't worry about the model year number, I'd concentrate on the month and year of the build.

From everything that I've read, Canada will get the 2018 models sometime this spring; the only difference from the 2017 models is that leatherette will be standard instead of optional. As for the U.S., who knows? Maybe they’ll continue their year-behind strategy and release the 2018s sometime this fall—anything’s possible!

Latest guess for a 2018 US realease is March/April although VW have a poor track record with e-Golf release dates. I’m not holding my breath...
These are the differences:

MY17
- Driver Assistance Package which includes Digital Cockpit and the full gamut of Driver Assistance features
- 8" Discover Media navigation
- Guide & Inform (Sirius Travel Link and Sirius Traffic w/ free trial subscription)

MY18
- Digital Cockpit standard
- Driver Assistance package with same gamut of Driver Assistance features
- 9.25" Discover Pro navigation w/ additional EV-specific features
- No Guide & Inform (not compatible with Discover Pro)

Where did you get the information leatherette is standard for MY2018? It is still a $365 option in the VW website.

Apologies—i thought I saw someone mention it on the e-Golf Facebook group. A quick check of the e-Golf configurator at vw.ca reveals that leatherette is still an extra-cost option.
