Passionate e-Golf* Pioneers

The first e-Golf* customers whom we had the pleasure of welcoming to the Gläserne Manufaktur in April of 2017 had to expect the odd driving adventure or two due to the still growing infrastructure of charging points. We introduce three of these brave pioneers here.

Whether in Dresden, Hamburg, or Berlin, the number of cars with an “E” on their license plates is on the rise. There is no doubt that we are on the threshold of a new age of mobility that will be marked by electric vehicles.

The first Volkswagen customers to pick up their e-Golfs* from us in person at the Gläserne Manufaktur in the spring of 2017 can truly be viewed as pioneers. After all, the constantly growing infrastructure of charging points and the many online platforms and information services that provide information on charging stations and payment options today were not imaginable then to the extent they are now. So planning a somewhat longer tour was much more complicated back then and required a certain spirit of adventure.

Although motivated by different practical reasons, these e-pioneers share a passion for innovation and sustainability. We present photos and brief descriptions of three of the very first pioneers:

Maik Vogel,

from the town of Weil in the state of Baden-Württemberg, some 525 kilometers from Dresden.

They were the first customers to pick up their new e-Golf* in person at the Gläserne Manufaktur.

Rebecca Hottes and Sebastian Rittscher

were especially delighted with the handover event at the Gläserne Manufaktur.

It was simply a great experience, from the very start until the moment we drove away. Superbly organized and carried out. Everyone was incredibly helpful and supportive with whatever we needed. Rebecca Hottes and Sebastian Rittscher
Maik Vogel

managing director of EAST | print GmbH here in Dresden.

Uses the new e-Golf primarily for the many drives within the city that he and his staff make every day.

His first impression: “Unusual, but sensational – with amazing pick-up and agility. The ideal car for a city!”
