It is 407 kilometers from the Hertleins’ home to Dresden. 407 kilometers – or approximately two battery charges with the e-Golf’s* current range. Matthias and Petra Hertlein knew that the drive home would therefore take a little longer than usual. But it wouldn’t put them off driving their vehicle back home themselves after the handover in the Gläserne Manufaktur.
Flashback: In October 2017, the Hertleins took their first test drive with an e-Golf*. “That was at our local dealership,” Matthias recalls. “To start with, we were still skeptical because we had never driven with an automatic gearbox before and thought that an electric car would definitely be unwieldy.” But that turned out to be a misconception. Sprightly, quiet and, of course, climate-friendly – these attributes of the e-Golf* convinced the family man. So he ordered one and booked the option of picking up the vehicle in the Gläserne Manufaktur.
