An amazing figure of $21,000 is being quoted in the US as the target price for the new VW Car.
There are very strong rumours in the US that VW is set to announce a line up of new electric cars priced as low as $21,000 or £17,000.
VW have stated publicly that they intend achieving savings through high volume but without ever releasing any figures.
VW have developed a modular chassis for the cars that will cover many different models. The batteries and motors will almost certainly be standardized.
The new 48 kilowatt battery should equate to about 175 miles range in the new Golf, but expect that range to grow over time.
