Here's a peak of what's to come in the form of electric vehicles from VW. Still vaporware at present, the Budd-e is not expected to be in production until 2018 or possibly 2019 model year. With a 101 kwh battery, VW claims an EPA rated 233+ miles range and 30 minutes to 80% charge. Compared to the Leaf's 24 kwh battery and 84 mile range, or Tesla's 90 kwh battery and 270 mile range, I would expect a 300 mile range from a battery this size. Of course everything is open to change prior to the production version actually coming to market. Dual motors will drive both front and rear wheels up to 93 mph. Connectivity and electronic controls featuring high resolution touch screens that can be controlled by voice and hand gestures will be featured in both this and the e-Golf. This may be VW's redemption for the fraud and environmental damage they created by cheating emissions testing with their diesel engines, but only after they've compensated owners and pay fines for their indiscretion. This looks to be an attractive EV. What do you think?
