German automaker Volkswagen wants to start selling electric cars in the United States in 2015, executive vice president for VW of America, Marc Trahan, revealed earlier this week.
According to The New York Times, the newly-unveiled e-Golf, the electric version of the company’s popular vehicle, could go on sale in the United States in two years, with more electric models to be introduced depending on demand.

“We want to be the leader in the global context, but other manufacturers have gotten a little ahead of the curve,” Trahan said after a speech to the Automotive Press Association in New York.

Until it goes on sale over the Pond, the Volkswagen e-Golf will become available in Germany next year, while the smaller e-Up will go on sale in same country starting next month.
