Over three of research for a zero-emissions future

First Golf with electric drive was the CityStromer debuted

in 1989

— generation of CityStromer launched on market in 1993

In the mid-1970s began to build electric in the framework of its research activities. And two decades ago, Volkswagen its first model with electric drive on the market – the CityStromer. Although it was only in a small production run, it a window to the future as an automotive of zero- emissions progress. vision becomes a reality in 2013, when Volkswagen launch its first electric on the market in large-scale production. production run in 1989, mass 2013 – these zero-emissions demonstrate how Volkswagen has been the development of this zero-emissions for decades now. But it also how the path to the future cannot be even with the best Only continual research and progress can make the future a and only when the time is for it.

Initial research results in the of electric drives were in 1976 in a first generation It was equipped with a 20 kW electric By 1986, this first served as a test vehicle in different battery types and motors were tested.

The first Golf CityStromer in 1989

Valuable experience with the test platform into the develop ment of the CityStromer, which was based on the generation Golf. In 1989, it was the electric vehicle to enter regular model lineup. to its 18.5 kW AC motor, the Golf could accelerate to 50 km/h in 13 and reach a top speed of 100 km/h.

lead-gel batteries installed the bootspace floor served as devices; operating at 96 Volts, had an energy capacity of 120 Ampere-hours This enabled a range of 50 kilo metres. To ensure exclusive use of the stored electrical for propulsion, certain auxiliary were supplied with from other sources. For the heating system in the Golf operated with diesel to guarantee comfortable temperatures in the winter. To charge its batteries, the CityStromer was simply connected to a 220-Volt electrical outlet. The connector cable was located an access door in the radiator

Volkswagen launches second CityStromer in 1993

When presented the third generation of the Golf in 1991, intensive of a new CityStromer had been conducted for time. It went into in 1993, built in a joint with Siemens. A total of 120 based on the third generation were built until

The first units were sold to regional utility across Germany. The car’s was practically indistinguishable from Golf series models, and the Golf CityStromer showed an high level of everyday that was excellent for those and still commands respect With technologies such as energy recovery (battery this Golf set standards for in the 1990s.

The energy needed to the electric motor was stored in 16 free lead gel battery with a total energy of 180 Ampere-hours (Ah); the system at 96 Volt. The synchronous AC motor frequency converter achieved an power of 17.5 kW, and the silently propulsion unit accelerated the 1.5 four-door to a top speed of 100 km/h. driven at a constant 50 km/h – in urban areas – ranges of up to 90 were possible. Unlike the majority of electric vehicles, the III CityStromer had a four-speed manual instead of a continuously variable Any conventional 220-Volt electrical could serve as a “fuelling here. It took about one and a hours to charge the batteries to 80 capacity, while complete required a little more
