We first got word that Volkswagen's e-Golf would finally make its debut in the States last year, and now there's a more precise arrival date. The VW EV is set to hit the road in the US this November with a pre-tax credit ($7,500) sticker price of $35,445. If you'll recall, the hatchback sports all-LED headlamps, goes from zero to an 80 percent charge in 30 minutes and boasts 115 horsepower. While we've seen reports of a 118-mile range, this announcement doesn't include an EPA rating, but states the expected mileage should be between 70 and 90 before needing to plug in. While it is more expensive than the popular Nissan Leaf, the e-Golf does offer more horsepower and interior space, and fast charging comes standard. As you might expect, the auto will be available in the handful of states that are part of the zero emissions vehicles (ZEV) action plan: California, Oregon, Connecticut, Vermont, Rhode Island, New York, Massachusetts and Maryland.
