I <3 EVs!
I love Volkswagens. Always have and I always will.
But for everyday driving, I love EVs more... which is why our family currently has my Honda Fit EV and the wife's Chevy Volt. But now that Volkswagen has an EV offering of their own! SIGN ME UP!
Having owned everything from a VW R32, VW Touareg, Audi Q7, Audi A3, Ford Explorer, Acura TL and even a BMW 1M... I love all kinds of cars. As many people who I've evangelized into an EV will attest... once you go EV, you really never go back to a "normal car".
The cost efficiency of electric vehicles, access to the HOV lanes in Los Angeles, the convenience of charging at home and not needing to pull over for fuel... all things things add up to an amazing ownership experience. The days that I need to put gas in my 1989 Jetta GLI (even though it's usually just $30)... really make one cringe once you're used to never filling up your EV. Even our Chevy Volt has only been fueled up 5 times in nearly two years of ownership.
Anyhow, I love EVs... and I know EVs. Can't wait to get a full day's drive in the e-Golf today!
