VW e-Golf electric vw £25617 at drivethedeal.com

Drive the deal are offering a huge discount to an electric golf.

The quoted prices include:





£2,000 deposit contribution on e-Golf model

£1,500 deposit contribution on All other Golf models

This deposit contribution is conditional upon you taking out PCP finance at 3.9% APR Representative over 18 to 48 months with a deposit of between 0%-30% of the cost of the car. If you do not wish to take out this finance, then you will need to add the above amounts to the prices that we quote.

The price I gave is minus any add ons so what you pay will probably go up.

Not for everyone obviously but that's a huge discount!

To run the numbers:

The e-golf gets approximately 4 miles per kWh. Each kWh costs 5p if charged off-peak on an Octopus EV tariff.

So the e-golf would cost approximately 1.25p per mile to run.

The average petrol/diesel car costs approximately 12p-15p per mile in fuel according to gov.uk figures.

So you save approximately 12p per mile, or to put it another way: you save £1000 per 8,000 miles that you drive when compared with an average internal combustion engine car.

Probably less.


I very much doubt it - Bearing in mind mind odds are now almost EVENS that £ will reach parity with € THIS YEAR!
That will mean the £ has fallen by 40% since 2016.
Now is a very good time to buy before the price increases further due to fall of £ and/or restrictions to free trade.

"Shocking" comment, you need to be more "positive". Don't be "negative" when it comes to electric car, some car dealers will "charge" more.
This is "poles" apart from other dealers, some prices are out right assault and "battery".
I don't want to "plug" this deal but "watt" deal is better??

Still seems expensive for golf.
Hoping the Honda E comes out at a similar price too
Wonder how much they'll cost after deal or no deal brexit :/
BIK rate on these for next year will be Zero, so they will be a great option if you can get your company to buy you one, you won't have to pay any Benefit In Kind Tax. Thats why I'm holding out buying until next year.
Great price though, heat added.

With the way the pound is going, I'd say more, though anyone predicting anything at the moment is a bad idea...

You can also get MG ZS Ev for under £22k or £24k for top of range model. + 7 years warranty.
Chinese of course

There are more variables than currency. You do realise you've contradicted your self?

In all seriousness though I haven't a clue. Hopefully a competitive business strategy will see us through whatever outcome. However it seems doubtful in our current guise

Haha, It's not hard to predict...Deal - same or lower prices.
No Deal - more to significantly higher prices...on a bright note JLR/manufacturers can sell their cars/products cheaper to other countries so at least the rich can keep getting richer - well until china/India manage to flood the market at lrast. I do not foresee the increased margins will translate to salary increases for us engineers working in manufacturing though, so our purchasing power will continue to decrease Good times.

Now is a terrible time to be buying high-value depreciating assets if you think the pound will further weaken. This is one of the precursors to a recession anyway so if I believed that, I wouldn't be buying expensive things on the basis of the pound weakening further, I'd be looking to safeguard my future and money.

Ignoring currency fluctuations it'll be the WTO tariff, so add 10%, £2000->£3000

I don't know how that works when a price is discounted though

Our currency fell against the Euro after the referendum by 13%, so expect a short term hit there as well at least
Anyone had experience with DriveTheDeal? Any gotchas you should be aware of?

My local garage said "they take the wheels off your car and sell them back to you" but I don't know how much faith to place in that considering they are the competition

Check other deal threads on here. I've glanced at the odd few and only seen positive feedback. I'd consider it tbh. I've even just booked a test drive for an e-Golf in a few weeks time however I don't think it's going to be practical for me.

These imported products are going to become more expensive in the very near future, therefore used car prices rise (or at least hold value better) as we seen during the credit crunch.
I understand the car will still depreciate but it will be reduced by the depreciation of the £.
Buying now whilst discounted before £ falls further and list prices rise (simply due to currency fall - not incorporating any possible tariffs) is better than leaving until Christmas in my opinion. Cars are going to become more expensive for us all this side of the pond, even if made in UK due to higher material costs.
Though this article is for the US market it highlights the principle - which will be even more relevant to UK market at the moment.

I've bought off drive the deal before. They are fine. But that was back in 2009. Would like this car but out of my price range.
Leasing an electric Golf? Ok. Buying it? No way.
Where is the price on the website? Clicked on "Get Discounted Price", then do you need to fill in your details so Drive the Deal can email you back with the discounted price?
I've purchased through drive the deal 4 years ago and saved 10k. I was so happy with the saving that I've now ordered a new audi, but got to wait until October for it.
To run the numbers:

The e-golf gets approximately 4 miles per kWh. Each kWh costs 5p if charged off-peak on an Octopus EV tariff.

So the e-golf would cost approximately 1.25p per mile to run.

Really useful stats. Good to keep in mind even for someone like me who's not in the market at the moment for another car.

This would make an excellent city car. Even better the e-UP and the likes of you can live with something smaller and but more basic - green credential which may allow other savings like parking permit costs, you don't need to worry about its short range, cities have somewhat of a charging infrastructure, plus savings in the fuel!

Will be interesting to see some cheap electric cars coming onto the market... Sub £15k.

Thanks for that, it's actually hard to find stats for UK EV drivers as to what you'll actually pay.

First 1000 ordered now, so no longer available at that price.
Aparently it's been made available for another 1000 orders, but you don't get free charger like first 1000 customers.

Hoping the Honda E comes out at a similar price too


The Honda E is a cool lilttle car, the exterior might not to be to everyone's liking. I howver love the interior which is so uncluttered and looks incredible, nothing else like it. I've read they are going to release the Honda Sports EV too which I'm salivating over slightly a lot. Would be perfect if it had around 200PS or so and a reasonable range, we'll see if it gets released.

there's a reason for the design, the primary goal wasn't to make them look pretty...

Not a great range on these, I think I read it's around 120m real world?

I work with Kia, our e-Niro has an amazing range, but sadly a very long waiting list.

This is about right if you do several journeys or daily commute. I have a 40 mile commute and charge the car about 2.5 times a week or for about 14 hours added together on a fast charger.
I have driven longer routes where after 70 miles the gauge is at just over half
Rapid charger gets the car from nearly empty to 80% in about 25-30 minutes.
These are probably being discounted because the ID range is due out soon. Good price considering the full grant is not available anymore.
I’m in Ireland at the moment (must be on a par with the most expensive county in the world btw) and equivalent pricing here is £34k at €1.1 to the £
Does anyone know the real world range on these?
Range isn't very good unfortunately. To cut down on costs VW have fitted less batteries. And in real world tests, most testers found they got 100 miles or less from it!

Agreed with range but it's all down to weather. At present easily getting over 130 miles but last winter was lucky to get 80 miles!
I paid around 21k for mine through carwow with scrappage and electric grant just under a year ago which was a great deal

Bought an e class estate from them last autumn with 26% discount. Was put in touch with the main dealer within 48 hrs and all contact from that point was just with the dealer. Car was a factory order delivered within 6 weeks. Very happy with drive the deal and the Merc dealer.

Same here... purchased a car from them and found them to be first class. No problems at all and would definitely use them again.
