any word on when we will be getting the 2018s? I just realized that VW is still selling them as 2017s :o

Lease is up in October and I'd rather get an 18 with the better warranty. Esp since it doesn't look like i'll get as good a deal as I did on the 2015 Model.

2017's didn't show up until around September 2017, so you MIGHT be able to get a 2018 in time. Don't expect any great deals though, no different than any other just-released car.

If you are planning to lease again, the extended factory warranty won't do you any good unless your lease is for more than 3 years/36k miles.

Inventory on the 2017 models in the U.S. has been steadily dropping over the past month or so; as of right now, there are only 100 new e-Golfs listed on cars.com (last fall and the beginning of this year regularly saw nationwide inventory in the 300-make-up range). This makes me think that we are due for a model-year change soon. They already have the 2018s in Canada—at least for those orders they've been able to fulfill! I suspect few people at VW thought that the e-Golf would be as popular as it has become in some places.

That will definitely make me consider buying out the car if the deals for new leases are disappearing.

2017 inventory is gone. I called VW USA and talked to three dealers: there will be no 2018 e-Golf. A 2019 e-Golf may appear next spring or summer, according to the person I spoke to at VW customer care. I hope it has a 48.8 kWh battery pack (~170 mile range). Though VW could also just kill off the e-Golf and introduce a MEB platform car instead in 2020, though I believe that would involve fines from CA per the criminal diesel agreement.

A guy from Speedcraft VW in Rhode Island posted in the e-Golf Facebook group that he just received 2018 e-Golf information. He has the ordering guide but the only thing of substance he said was that the battery was the same as the 2017. He is inquiring about availability.

He gave his e-mail address: Peter Delgado <pdelgado@speedcraft.com>
