The ID3 would probably disappear and the golf would become all electric, or in simple terms the ID3 would be badged golf.The problem is, when the Polo gets its mid life facelift (probably next year?), the bean counters within VW ivory towers will be looking to cut costs, so it’ll probably get an interior like the mk8 Golf, complete with the touchscreen overload!
I think that because the all-electric ID3 and the mk8 Golf were being developed at the same time, with all electric cars becoming an increasingly important market for car manufacturers, the ID3 probably had a significantly larger development budget than the mk8 Golf, and in certain areas (interior), IMO it shows.
If the future is all-electric (some countries banning the sale of petrol, diesel and hybrid cars in 10-15 years time), what does that mean for the future of the Golf?
Will there be an all electric Golf? Unlikely IMO as it would be a direct competitor to the ID3. Which leads on to the question, will there be a mk9 Golf? Interesting times ahead.................
