Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) November 10, 2014
Volkswagen Santa Monica, a proud member of the LAcarGUY family of dealers is excited to announce that it has sold the first Volkswagen e-Golf in the United States.
LAcarGUY has a strong commitment to the environment, and that is why it is one of the leading dealer groups in the nation when it comes to selling hybrids, plug-in’s and clean diesels.
Volkswagen Santa Monica continues in that tradition, offering not only the Volkswagen TDI clean diesels, but now selling and delivering the first e-Golf, Volkswagen’s first pure electric vehicle.
The Volkswagen e-Golf has class leading 126MPGe in the city, 105MPGe on the highway and a combined rating of 116MPGe. Official range for the e-Golf is 83 miles, however range can be further, depending on driving style and conditions.
The e-Golf can be recharged to 80% capacity in 20 minutes with a Fast Charger, or less than 4 hours with a standard 240 charger.
“I’ve driven an electric car for the past three years and range has never been a problem for me”, said Sabri Sansoy, the first e-Golf owner in the U.S., “In my search for a new car I test drove all the current electric cars and found the e-Golf to be the best in terms of price, looks, handling and cargo space. “
“VW has always been a part of our family.” Sabri continued, “My parents first car was a VW Karmann Ghia, and in the later years we had a VW wagon we took on many memorable road trips”
On why he came to Volkswagen Santa Monica, “I visited the dealership about a month ago and the staff was very knowledgable about the eGolf, which secured my interest in the car.”
“We are really excited about the launch of the Volkswagen e-Golf” said LAcarGUY owner Mike Sullivan, “Volkswagen is “The People’s Car”, and with the e-Golf, we now have an electric car for everyone”
