The e-Up! follows on from the success of the original Up!. If you want a slightly larger electric vehicle, the ID.3 has been built from the ground up for electric power, offering a larger battery and greater range. There’s also the plug-in hybrid version of the Golf Hatchback, if you want the flexibility to travel longer distances at short notice. Less More
Unlike the original Up!, the e-Up! is available with five doors only, making it more practical. A 32kWh battery pack allows you to travel up to 159 miles on a single charge. Acceleration is nippy, thanks to the instant torque of the electric motor, which will help when weaving in and out of lanes in the city.
If you want to maximise the effect of the e-Up’s regenerative braking, flip the gear shifter into ‘B’ mode. Any energy that would have been lost through braking is then used to top up the battery as the car slows to a halt. If you want to be even more efficient, switch to ‘Eco Plus’ mode, which limits acceleration, lowers the top speed, and focuses climate control efforts on the driver to conserve energy.
There’s no touchscreen infotainment system like you’d find in more expensive VW’s. VW knew you’d have a smartphone anyway, so they designed an app and a smartphone mount instead! You do however get a small screen that displays radio channels and the image from the reversing camera which, by the way, is standard!
