Volkswagen is doubling production of the e-Golf on the back of strong demand for the EV.
InsideEVs reports that the German automaker will change the Transparent Factory Dresden responsible for producing the e-Golf from a single-shift operation to a two-shift one, increasing production from 35 to 70 cars a day.
Over a month, this will mean production reaches 2100 vehicles compared to the current 1050. Production of the e-Golf will increase gradually, staring in March 2018.
In its most recent guise, the VW e-Golf is powered by a 35.8 kWh battery, a significantly jump from the 24.2 kWh battery used by pre-2017 models. The EPA lists the e-Golf’s range between 83-125 miles (134-201 km). The electric motor powering the e-Golf delivers 134 hp and 214 lb-ft of torque, a 19 hp and 15 lb-ft gain over earlier versions.
