Volkswagen has some official pictures of their upcoming plug in electric variant of the Golf. Dubbed Golf blue-e-motion, the zero emission vehicle is powered by lithium-ion batteries and is expected to go on sale in 2013.
Electric power is provided by a lithium-ion battery bank which is rated at 26.5KWh and is claimed to provide a nominal range of 93 miles.
