    I'd be onboard for the GTE if it gets a power bump. Electric to work, petrol on the weekend. Depends on wether we start to see some EV rebates here I guess.

    I am so looking forward to an all electric golf. No half-way hybrid.
    All E with all wheel drive, and performance upgrades purchased over the air, through the cloud.
    Yup.

    Yup.
    Sorry mate not going to happen, VW has already said the E-Golf will not be made after MK7. The fully electric range of Vw is reserved for the I.D family.
    Hybrids only for the golf, at least for the MK8 anyway.

    I'll let the others fawn over E whatevers and once finished yawning focus on where the GTI/Rs will head to next.

    Long live combustion and carbon.

    I would by an Electric VW as a second car. Keep the R for fun.
    Batteries aside, (Iím sorry to say this) but electric motors are superior to ICE...

    Superior in the aspects I don't care for though.. when that day comes I'll move on.

    I guess it's just sad the first thing people discuss on a new model with such heritage is it's electric status. May as well discuss stick blenders..

    Heritage - humbug!
    Keep going back and youíll get to coal, and sail, and horse, and bipedal-
    Itís evolution, and the the Golf has always stood for measured evolution.

    Embrace the big E
