What's the news?
The Volkswagen e-Golf is now available, for a limited time only, with 0 per cent PCP finance.
Even better, Volkswagen Ireland has come up with a two-year PCP solution that will allow customers interested in the German brand's forthcoming ID electric sub-marque to move easily into the hatchback production model when it arrives in 2021.
Staying in the here and now for a moment, the e-Golf is available in two specifications, which are plain old e-Golf and then the Executive Edition. The Executive Edition builds on the standard car's kit list with 17-inch Madrid alloys, LED taillights, a full leather interior, the Active Info Display digital instrument cluster, a rear-view camera and keyless access. Prices start at €35,995 after government incentives and that translates into as little as €349 per calendar month, or €379pcm for the €39,495 Executive Edition.
If you want to avail yourself of the two-year PCP deal, so that you can switch out of your e-Golf into a Volkswagen ID in two years' time, then it'll be €399pcm for the regular model and €489pcm on the Executive Edition.
Mark McGrath, Volkswagen Ireland's head of marketing, said: "Customers of the e-Golf can save around €50 [based on total cost of ownership] per month by driving this model compared to a 1.6-litre diesel Golf of similar specification. And with this new two-year PCP product, customers can get into the e-Golf now and then readily move into the new ID products when they arrive."
Volkswagen's ID range will include hatchback, SUV and MPV models, with the ID hatch due to be revealed later this year.
