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 in excess of 90 miles.
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 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. Both front seats are heated and the driver further benefits from height-adjustable seating. 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 93-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 seven 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 four-speaker sound system includes a DAB digital radio and a CD player. A colour touchscreen provides audio and navigation functionality. Driver aids include an Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Programme, Anti-Slip Regulation, Electronic Differential Lock and Hill Hold. Among a range of passive safety features are seatbelt reminders, ISOFIX anchor points and multiple airbags. Central locking and an electronic engine immobiliser help to keep the e-up! secure.
