The 50 Volkswagen e-Golfs in question were to delivered to a variety of Hamburg government employees, members of the general public, and businesses.
(No word yet re ease of pedaling... for warmth and exercise, but also to save peak outputs at starts, etc.) Sorta worried about my batteries? AKA lowest costs per mile/per day... :wink:

Hint:
Passenger Capacity : 5
Base Curb Weight : lbs 2455
Suspect REALLY hard to pedal. [sigh]

Just gotta wait for folks to trash `em in "accidents"... at least some that might lust after the battery packs. :wink:
