$12,500 + tax title license

If you qualify for these, you get more off:

-$2,500.00 Employer Rebate (YMMV, this varies tremendously, if your employer gives an employee benefit for this)

$6,000.00 total + tax title license Can be as low as this, for most it will closer to $10-12k total + ttl


Discounts:
1. negotiated price - most dealerships are doing $10k off. Please use my quote below for pricematch
2. Federal rebate, if you federal tax liability is $7500, you can claim all of this and get this back. You may be able to roll over, please check your tax professional.
3. State rebate- each state has a different amount, in CA it is $2500 or $4500 ( low income)
currently CA has finished funds for the year, however, the last 3 years they have added more, so the expectation is that you should revive this.
4. Employer Rebate - Some employers are giving incentives for purchasing an EV this is YMMV
5. Utility rebate- each utility is offering various incentives, this will depend on where you live
6. College grad - if you graduated within 2 years or will in 6 months you get $500 with transcripts
7. Partner Program - if you employer is in the VW partner program you get $500
Partner Program - If your employer is not a partner, you can become a member of the SCCA (no cost) - here is how: http://www.letmegooglethat.com/?q...er+program
http://www.vwpartnerprogram.com/
SCCA free members for partner program if employer does not have it,https://www.scca.com/pages/member-benefits-preview
8. Military - if you are in the military another $500
9. First res-ponder - VW and your state may be give additional funds

If someone qualified for all the rebates the cost of the car would be less than $10k.possibly $6500 in CA if low income and military, recent grad, and work for a company that is partner, and also a first responder.

How soon can you pay off your loan -
It depends on when the dealer submits your info. Keep calling the 800-428-4034, Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Eastern, there is an automated option which lets you get payment info using your social. Once this option works (if the dealer hasn't submitted your info, it will say it can't find your info), you can use the option to reach a human who can provide you your account number.

After calling VW Credit to get your account number:
1. opt out of all sharing of information with affiliates and contractors
2. get my account info and register online at VWCredit.com

You will be able to pay it off all online. Once you login:

1. Click "Payment Options"
2. Click "Payoff Quote"
3. Click "Online Payoff"
4. Click "Payoff My Vehicle"
5. Choose your options where you want the Title delivered, then click "Continue"
6. Enter your bank information and click "Continue"
7. That should do it. And then wait 7-10 days for the Title in the mail.

I'm also in the bay area. I've never heard of this - "$2,500.00 Employer Rebate". So my employer needs to be a part of the VM partner program? any clever ways to get this?

How big is the battery in this thing?

Oops. I missed the "if you use solar power" part.

Just curious.. what is the standard rate of electricity there?

Either electricity in CA is extremely cheap, or that car must be insanely efficient. Cost per kWh in my town in central FL is a little over $.13/kWh, which is pretty reasonable, and my Volt can hold a little over 9kWh per charge, which with regenerative braking equals out to close to 10kWh getting me about 50 miles.

That math, assuming an additional 2kWh in lost efficiency per charge according to my earlier charges using a Kill-A-Watt, it costs me about $1.40 a day to drive 50 miles. Cheaper than gas by about $1. a day vs a 50mpg Prius, but nowhere near the number you're coming up with.
Number is definitely off, but he said with solar panels so he's calculating free electricity.

It's a tempting deal, but residual is pretty low on these

125 mile range. If I was able to get all the discounts (incl employer partner), i would seriously consider this...as a novelty/extra car. But that range is abysmal, which is probably why its discounted so heavily.

I have been driving a 2016 egolf for 3 years now, and really have come to love this vehicle as a commuter or 2nd car. The cost of electricity is much lower than gas. If you have solar, it is literally costs $.25 cents to drive 30 miles vs, 1 gallon of gas $3.75 ( so cal). Driving on California sunshine sure beats dinosaur juice. Anyways, here is the deal:
My parents have 2 plug in hybrids a Prius and a Volt.

0.25 per 30 miles? Might want to try your math again.

California averages 17c per Kwh. Cars like these do about 250Wh per mile. Or 4 miles per Kwh.

So 17 cents for 4 miles. $1.275 for 30 miles.

Obviously rates vary, some places might have offpeak rates as low as 7c or so per Kwh. Others may be fixed at 25-30c+ per Kwh.

This VW doesn't meet my personal driving needs.
However, if someone can buy 'em for $12k OTD in California and wants a backer to run them thru Turo @ LAX/Burbank/John Wayne, drop me a PM.

E-golf has 186 Miles in one charge. Real life may be 125 miles approximately and probably so will only be your daily commute to work car.

Keep in mind bumper to bumper warranty is only 3/36.

"he People First Warranty transfers to subsequent owners for the remainder of its six-year or 72,000-mile coverage – helping protect your investment in a new VW. It comes standard on all 2018 Volkswagen models, with the exception of the electric 2018 e-Golf, which will carry a bumper-to-bumper, 3-year or 36,000 mile (whichever occurs first) New Vehicle Limited Warranty as well as an eight-year, 100,000-mile High Voltage Limited System warranty on its battery."

Not in the market, but seems pretty accessible for someone who is...
Even with low residual, how do you go wrong with such a low cost of driving? (Obviously electric has to work for you)
This could be the next electric pickup mod...

most people will not be able to replicate this deal

-$7,500.00 Fed Rebate (This is actually a tax CREDIT not a rebate, so that information is incorrect as not everyone will be able to benefit from this)

These rebates are VERY specific and most people won't qualify for them:
-$2,500.00 CA State Rebate (other states higher or lower)
-$2,500.00 Employer Rebate (YMMV, this varies tremendously)
-$500.00 Utility Rebate (locality specific)
$0.00 College Grad (another $500 if you have graduated or will soon)
-$500.00 Partner Cert (if your employer is a partner)
