What can we expect from the Volkswagen e-up! when it launches in February?
The Volkswagen e-up! is entirely based on the existing up! models, allowing for efficient manufacturing through the existing production line as well as the sharing of many parts.
This means the e-up! doesn’t compromise on style, performance or space. You’ll be able to clock up around 99 miles when the vehicle is fully charged and, with a single speed gear box, it is actually the quickest up! in the range.
If you do a lot of city driving, the e-up! could be a good option for you. The charging network across the UK is improving all the time, giving you more options to keep the e-up! ready to go.
The e-up! is all set for a comfortable journey regardless of the weather outside. Electronic climate control allows the driver to fully regulate the internal temperature and helps eliminate external odours.
Anyone who has ever painstakingly scraped their front windscreen following a frosty night (that’ll be all of us then) will be delighted to know that the e up! boasts a heated front windscreen.
The e-up! comes equipped with Volkswagen Maps & More via a portable five inch touchscreen:
The e-up! is packed with a host of features that give you a fantastic driving experience and help this city car really stand out:
The optional combined charging system provides a cable with two different plugs. This allows drivers to use alternating current when they have sufficient time for home charging, or are using public charging points. When time is of the essence, drivers can utilise direct current for quicker charging at public charging points, allowing them to get back on the road as quickly as possible.
Owners of the e-up! can install a vehicle charging kit in their homes (currently available free from British Gas) which can lead to 55% faster charging.
The e-up! makes a welcome addition to the Volkswagen up! family, adding a new dimension with zero emissions.
