GALLERY: Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet Convertible

Small, four-seat convertibles like the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet are something of a rare breed these days, so the convertible Golf has few direct rivals. You could argue that the Audi TT , Audi A3 Cabriolet and BMW 2 Series convertible are alternatives, but all three are much more expensive than the VW, while the DS 3 Cabrio is slightly smaller and not quite a full convertible like the Golf.

The VW Golf has had several generations made into electric CityStromer models. The first of these was in the 1970s, when VW took a standard Golf Mk1 and converted it to electric power. By the time the Golf Mk2 came into production a limited number of electric Golfs were made, using lead–acid battery packs and a custom-made motor and controller . VW continued with the production of limited numbers of CityStromer electric cars with the introduction of the Golf Mk3. The electric CityStromer Mk3 included a Siemens-based AC drive system, and lead–acid battery packs. They had a maximum speed of 97 km/h (60 mph) and a range of approximately 80 km (50 mi). With a few exceptions, only left-hand drive Golfs were converted by VW into Citystromer models. These vehicles are still used today and have popularity in mainland Europe with only a few present in Great Britain. Only two right-hand drive Mk2 CityStromers were built for the UK market and it is believed only one remains today. It is owned by EV advocate and broadcaster Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield, host of Transport Evolved.
