The e-up! is the electric version of the popular city car from Volkswagen. Sharing the neat design of its fuel-driven counterpart, the e-up! is surprisingly nippy and has a driving range of 99 miles. Perfect for everyday driving the new e-up is chargeable in as fast as 30 minutes at a public high-speed DC charging station. At home you can charge overnight in 6 hours with the Combined Charging System (CSS), which gives you two types of plug, so you have the choice to charge in the comfort of your home using either the domestic mains socket or a super-speedy wall box.
Out and about? Find your nearest charging station using the ZapMap, which lists thousands of charging points across the UK, there are more places than you'd think to charge your car out and about!
Thanks to new recuperation technology, the e-up! can now take the energy your car would normally lose through braking and use it to power the battery - so you recharge the battery every time you brake!
The five-door e-up! is a smartly fashioned car with body-coloured bumpers, door handles and (power-adjustable and heated) door mirrors. Stand-out features include a Blue and Chrome strip below the bonnet lip, signature 'C' lights around the door handles, wraparound headlights, bumper-positioned LED daytime running lights and 15-inch Tezzle alloy wheels – each contributing to an eye-catching front-end. Fog lights are located front and rear and an additional, high-level brake light is included too.
A fine ‘chessboard’ motif permeates the e-up!’s four-seat cabin. Flashes of chrome can be discerned on door handles and elsewhere. A split-grain leather-wrapped and height-adjustable steering wheel and a leather-trimmed gear knob and handbrake grip – each embellished with blue stitching – contribute to the stylish ambience of the interior. Other standard features include power-assisted steering, electric front windows, a heated rear windscreen and air conditioning. A 250-litre boot features discreet under-floor storage and overall capacity can be increased with rear seats folded.
The e-up! has a 99-mile range, and using a standard power supply, the e-up! can be charged overnight. With a rapid-charge unit, the batteries can be replenished in approximately six hours. A DC charging station takes roughly 30 minutes to provide an 80 percent charge. With 81bhp and 210Nm of torque, the car can go from 0-60mph in a little over 12.5 seconds and achieve a top speed of 80mph.
A six-speaker sound system includes a DAB digital radio and a CD player. A 5-inch colour touchscreen provides audio and navigation functionality. Driver aids include an Anti-lock Braking System, City Emergency Brake, Rear Parking Sensors and Camera, Electronic Stability Programme, Anti-Slip Regulation, Electronic Differential Lock and Hill Hold. Among a range of passive safety features are seat belt reminders, ISOFIX anchor points and multiple airbags. Central locking and an electronic engine immobiliser help to keep the e-up! secure.
The e-up now features a new app called 'Think Blue. Trainer.', which acts like your own personal driving coach, analysing your driving characteristics and letting you know what you can do to drive more efficiently. A great tool for 'at-a-glance' checks as you're driving.
You can also use the e-Manager to optimise your car's settings, just tell it when you're setting off, how much cargo you're carrying and what air-con settings you'd like and let the e-up! do the rest!
Need to use your phone to navigate? Use the 'Maps + More' app for 2D or 3D hands-free guidance via TomTom. Want to connect your phone or music? Not a problem! Stream your music or answer your calls on the go. Plus you can also use the app to find where you've parked, so no more walking around the entire car park to find your car, monitor your charge levels and even start or stop charging.
