Snazzy car anyway. No range anxiety with this auto! Well, they won't be coming off lease until 2022 or so, plenty of time to save up.
On the EPA test cycle we are looking at about 200-225 miles range or the same as the Bolt and Model 3. I would expect the price to be about the same or about $35K to $38K. By 2020 Tesla and GM will have burned through all of their EV tax credits but VW will still have most of theirs left. That is a $7500 price advantage for VW to play with.
