Just in 2022, the 14-year reign of Volkswagen Golf at the top of European car sales charts came to an end. It was unexpectedly dethroned by the Peugeot 208 supermini.

Volkswagen Golf EV

In a bid to resuscitate its supremacy, Volkswagen is working on a mid-cycle facelift for the eighth-generation Golf slated to start sale in 2025. It has been rumored that VW is also attempting to prepare it (VW Golf) for an inevitable electric future.

The new Volkswagen Electric Vehicle, which is due for sale in 2025 is expected to be the VW Group’s first car to ride on the MEB-Plus platform, engineered for front-wheel-drive applications.

It is also believed the new VW EV would support dual motors for models equipped with all-wheel drive. In regards to dimensions, it would ostensibly be longer than a Polo but shorter than the conventionally powered Golf, at approximately 4,250 millimeters (167.3 inches). The dedicated electric car platform will result in short overhangs to maximize the wheelbase and offer Golf-like levels of interior room. It’s expected to weigh anywhere between 1,600 to 1,700 kilograms (3,527 to 3,748 pounds) and spawn a GTI version.

Autocar’s Findings

According to Autocar a “senior source” from within VW reportedly cited a decision taken to drop the GTX suffix in the long run. It is currently being used for the sportier ID.4 and ID.5 SUVs, with the ID.3 hot hatch and ID. Buzz performance minivan to follow.

While the MQB-based Golf with its combustion engines is produced at home in Wolfsburg, the namesake electric will be assembled by SEAT at its Martorell factory in Spain. It’s the place where a production version of the Cupra Urban Rebel will be made.
