Paris Motor Show EV Reveals Imply Major Auto Manufacturers Are Chasing Tesla’s Lead https://t.co/WcThFgVTtp

Volkswagen will debut its first purpose-built EV. The near-production concept will preview an EV that VW says will be similar in size to its Golf compact hatchback with a range on a single charge of 250 to 300 miles. Its interior space rivals that of the Passat midsize model thanks to its new MEB (modular electrification kit) platform. It has been developed specifically for electric cars and packages the battery pack beneath the car’s floor. The EV will have a distinctive design to differentiate it from VW’s nonelectric cars. VW brand is expected to launch the car in early 2018 or 2019. It will be followed by other EVs, including a minivan based on the BUDD-e concept unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in January and a successor to the Phaeton sedan.
