VW will reveal a Golf sized electric family hatchback at the Paris motor show, according to Autocar:
2019 Volkswagen electric hatchback will be 'a mobile device on wheels' | Autocar

The Golf-sized electric VW will launch at the Paris show later this month with a range of 250 miles on the NEDC cycle — the equivalent of 400km — around 90 miles more than typical in todays affordable electric cars. ‘A range of 400km is fine for normal life,’ says Senger
The Volkswagen Bus Is Back And Now It's Electric

From an earlier article:
... the car will have the exterior dimensions of a Golf but the same interior space as a Passat. Following the car's debut as a prototype at the Paris motor show, it should be launched officially in late 2018 or early 2019.
Comparable range and size to the Chevy Bolt but arriving later.
I wonder whether it will resemble the Golf shaped concept drawing or what of the Transporter like Budd-e will filter through.

My new favorite mineral is tinnunculite which forms when falcon poo reacts with the gases from a burning coal mine. Yeah.
