Unique New Volkswagen EV on the Way, Separate from Golf

New Volkswagen EV

What’s the new EV going to look like? We can hardly wait!

Volkswagen has an entirely new electric vehicle on the way, in addition to the upcoming, latest version of the e-Golf, according to reports. Details from the automaker have been slim, but the new vehicle is said to be “iconic,” just like the Golf.

All we know currently is that the new model will be a stand-alone electric vehicle, likely based on the e-Golf’s electric powertrain. However, the new EV will not be based on the e-Golf itself, and should boast seriously impressive electric mileage numbers.

Head Volkswagen exec Herbert Diess says the vehicle will hit the road sometime in 2019, so hopefully, we will be getting more information about this future vehicle soon. The vehicle is said to be “the Volkswagen for the digital age” – a promising prospect, indeed.

In the meantime, while we wait for the new Volkswagen EV, visit us anytime at Sierra Volkswagen to check out the enormous selection we have in store.

Basic Snow Shoveling Tips to Keep in Mind This Winter

Snow Shoveling Tips

Unless your car looks like this. Then you’re probably doomed.

While most of us are well aware of the dangers of driving on snow, not as many people realize how dangerous it can be to actually shovel snow.

When attempted improperly, simply shoveling your sidewalk to clear it of snow can cause injuries – and in some tragic cases, death. This is more often a problem for the elderly, but it goes to show how much of a strain the process can be.

A few snow shoveling tips:

First of all, if you are sick or tired, do not attempt to shovel snow. And if you start to feel uncomfortable once you begin, you should stop. If you are ill or injured, shoveling is seriously not worth the risk.

Secondly, it’s important to get a good quality shovel, specifically for you. The shovel shouldn’t be too heavy, but it should be able to get the job done. You also don’t want a cheap shovel that may break.

Lastly – never pick up the snow, and definitely never throw it over your shoulder. This is unnecessary strain. All you need to do is simply push the snow out of the way!
