German automobile maker Volkswagen according to reports are working on creating an electric vehicle (EV),despite being faced with the present court battle of the dieselgate scandal in the US the company is still up and running.

German magazine Wirtschafts Woche had a talk with the CEO of Volkswagen and he stated that the upcoming EV will have a range somewhere between 248 to 372 miles (400 to 600 kms) and will have a similar size as the VW Golf but posses the cargo space of the larger Passat sedan. But since the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) is a bit more liberal with its efficiency figures it will probably be somewhere close to 300 miles (482 kms) on a single charge,which could make it the longest range EV in the market if the facts come true.

Only the prototype will be made first,but the final consumer version of the car will be sent into production in 2018 or 2019.
