Frankfurt: Volkswagen E-Up!

little city car, we come! That’s the first when you see Volkswagen’s new zero E-Up! concept. The company has hopes for the car and has described it the “Beetle of the Century”.

Tipping the scales at a light 1085 kilograms the has one basic fundamental right, low When you consider the car’s battery is a hefty 240kg actually some achievement.

an electrical charging point behind the bonnet mounted VW the 60kW/210Nm powered E-Up! can be in around 5 hours. To ease the on the engine, the car’s eletrical is powered, in part, by the car’s roof panels. Even the sun visors are fitted with cells that can supplement generation by flipping them out the sun.

Those Germans of everything!

It seems marketers can given they came up the label Human Machine (HMI) for the car’s interior In addition to the expected monitoring of charge remaining and usual and lighting controls, the HMI has some nifty features, including capability that allows the use of an to commence recharging. Ideal for advantage of off-peak electricity

Update on the Future

New Small with E-Motor. E-Up! – Outlook for the Beetle of the 21st

World premiere: Volkswagen is city specialist with motor

Wolfsburg / Frankfurt, 14 2009 Volkswagen is presenting a fleet of new sustainable automobiles at the International Motor Show – an update on the future. The range of IAA extends from the world’s fuel-efficient production passenger car to hybrid technology and an electric car from the ground up – the E-Up! is being presented in a world in Frankfurt.

Plain text – plus TDI and TSI shape the future

these Volkswagens are revising on the timeline between present and One of the basic milestones on this says Prof. Dr. Martin Chairman of the Board of Management of the Group, is the mass produced car.

Yet, to be a genuine such an electric car must be to a broad customer base and be uncompromisingly practical in everyday Only then, in high and ideally on all continents, can one truly of the beginning of the electric age in automobiles and a reduction of their environmental The Group chief continues: until the production numbers of a electric car approach the success of a Polo, its schedule will the year 2020 at the earliest. is why our highly efficient TDI and TSI engines are the important waypoints of the present. will continue to be a dominant for decades. And they are what us to make the step-by-step transition to the

Cars with pure and diesel engines – which in the future will continue be for mid- to long-range distances – be supplemented by cars like the in upcoming years, especially in the And that will happen in 2013. The concept car now being in Frankfurt very realistically how we envision such a Volkswagen pure electric drive – visually and with regard to a size.

The zero-emissions concept car under the leadership of Dr. Ulrich Member of the Board of Management, Brand, and Head of the Development area, is based on modules of the New Family anticipated in the year but at a length of 3.19 meters it is more compact. It also an innovative 3+1 seating concept.

In its the powerful and clearly drawn of the E-Up! body follow the new design DNA par excellence and show potential. That is because before has an ultra-compact vehicle – does not aim to be retro but forges new instead – brought such timeless, class-independent and dynamic to light. Inside, the smallest ever also astonishes its impressive space utilisation.

unit – battery and integral

The 135 km/h fast 3+1 seater is by an electric motor with a power output of 60 kW (continuous 40 kW). The motor of the front-wheel car, which is mounted in develops a maximum torque of 210 right from rest. The activates forward or reverse via a rotary knob in the centre The fact that the E-Up! also quite clearly driving enjoyment is demonstrated by a at the car’s classic 0 to 100-km/h time: 11.3 seconds. The develops even greater in the intermediate sprint from 0 to 50 in city driving: 3.5 seconds.

dynamic performance is based on the electric motor’s excellent characteristic and second on the low kerb of the E-Up. which is just kilograms.

Lithium-ion battery: The low weight is quite astounding, the fact that 240 kilograms are up by the lithium-ion battery. The implemented energy capacity of 18 kilowatt-hours enables driving distances of up to 130 depending on driving style – for the city and the drives of most The E-Up! will be refueled in the at home, in a parking structure or on the at one of the future municipal recharging that will be enabled by card.

Depending on the available charging and the battery’s momentary charge the storage battery could be to up to 80 percent of its total capacity an hour.

If the batteries are recharged in a garage, for example, by plugging it a 230-Volt household outlet, would take a maximum of hours. Generally, off-peak electric rates are very So refueled at night the E-Up! be driven 100 kilometres for just two in electricity costs (about 14 cents / kWh).

The batteries are housed in the underbody of the E-Up! To distribute the weight of the battery it is housed in a special, crash-protected in the underbody frame. Air cooling a constant heat balance the batteries.

The fans and heat needed for this are housed in the section of the underbody.

Integral The teams of Concept Development by Ralf-Gerhard Willner) and Engine (headed by Dr. Jens Hadler) all important drive assemblies and assemblies in the engine compartment at the end. The design of an integrated of the electric drive made a key toward reducing weight and requirements for the drive unit. All components important to the powertrain are in compact form in the so-called drive. In this unit, the motor, together with the and differential, form the centrepiece of drive.

Energy is supplied via a pulse-control inverter, which is with the 12-Volt electrical DC/DC converter and the charger to the compact integral drive. At 140 the integral drive is also lightweight. To summarise its advantages: low requirement, ideal acoustic high torque and power and strong driving performance in the

So the system fulfils the requirements of an electric drive in a nearly way.

Styling – the Beetle of the Century

The E-Up! emphatically that emission-free Volkswagens be anything but lacking in emotion. for this, once again, is the led by Group Chief Designer de Silva. Together with Bischoff (Chief Designer, Brand) and Flavio Manzoni of Creative Design, Volkswagen he developed a layout for the E-Up! reflects the visual bandwidth of the New Small Family.

The E-Up! a resemblance to previously presented vehicles of this new model – the Up! (city specialist), Space-Up! and Space-Up Blue! (fuel powered van) – it represents a stage that reflects the production car even more

The E-Up! , says Klaus is characterised by a reduced, very and yet highly emotional design. And is certainly no coincidence. The car’s consistently follow Volkswagen’s new era DNA that was developed by de Silva, and Manzoni. Its key stylistic traits: purity, durability and perfection of its and quality.

Bischoff: The new concept is very much in harmony its stylistic ‘siblings’ of the New Small the Roadster BlueSport and the new Polo. of the E-Up! are 3.19 meters x 1.64 meters (width) x meters (height). Its wheelbase is meters.

Front end: E-Up! styling was developed the Up. the electric car differs from powered models in the new model Consider the front end: It in perfectly with the brand’s new face, yet at the same time it back to one of the greatest icons in history in the area of the engine the Beetle. Nonetheless, the E-Up! not reveal the slightest hint of styling; instead, designers new and unmistakable styling tools would carry the small far into the future.

Fitting in this image are the headlights their facet-like lenses – cut diamonds – that extend the entire width of the lens Another interesting detail: the fog At first glance they can be recognised as such. The designers configured them as C-shaped, elements in the headlight housings. style-defining is the black line in a circular pattern in the bumper – a characteristic of the New Small Family. In the of all elements, the bumper, headlights and bonnet, explains Klaus the E-Up! really appears to

And that is how it should be. Conspicuous: are hardly any openings at the front since there is no need for cooling of the drive unit.

The VW on the V-shaped engine bonnet of the is more than just an to the Beetle. Hidden behind the logo is the integrated port for the batteries. The advantage of positioning the port here is that it it easier to recharge the E-Up! stations on either the left or sides of the street or directly in of the car.

Side profile: In with Volkswagen’s design DNA the sections also exhibit a level of stylistic purity, the Bauhaus principle created in the in Germany that ‘less is says Flavio Manzoni. car’s visual identity is intentionally created by just a few elements that blend to form a new unit in the classic approach to creative art and innovative These defining elements of the side profile include its glass and shoulder styling above the door handles as the tornado line.

The side profile styling is defined by the car’s short overhangs, the confident outward of the wheel housings and unique Flavio Manzoni explains the presence of the C-pillar: Visually, the aligned C-pillar is positioned the rear wheel, which a feeling of balance and solidity. properties are indispensable for a Volkswagen.

but not least, the prominent and powerful styling gives the car a perfect .

Rear end: The basic forms of the tailgate and rear follow those of the very Up! However, the once again glazed tailgate now exhibits larger taillights in dark glass look. Running the taillights is a line trimmed in that extends across the The circular chrome line the two taillights in a vertical direction.

accents are also reflected in the graphic element of the front and bumpers.

Solar roof: The of the E-Up! is equipped with cells over an area 1.4 square meters. This – between the rear part of the edge spoiler and the front – can be enlarged to 1.7 square meters in by folding down the sun visors are also equipped with cells. The solar cells supply energy to the car’s system, and while the vehicle is they help to cool the by supplying energy to the car’s system.

Interior I – Instruments and

Flavio Manzoni: The interior was in complete harmony with the exterior styling, and it exhibits a aesthetic with a technical-purist To improve the electric car’s economy by avoiding unnecessary actuators such as mirror and window lifts were to be manually operated. Nonetheless, the innovative E-Up! makes its with an impressive array of generation high-tech displays and They are all quite self-explanatory, and the controls are intuitive, making and life with this as simple and stress-free as possible.

The concept car has a touch-screen based HMI Machine Interface) with E-Up! specific indicators and functions. During navigation, the continually monitors the momentary state of the batteries, for example, as as activated energy consumers as lights and air conditioner, momentary data, elevation profiles of routes and the locations of available stations. The driver can display filling stations at any time; charging stations may be reserved a defined reservation time

The charging process can also be planned to the minute via the HMI. lets users charge the during a specific time in which electricity is available at low rates. The charging process can be at any time via an intuitively operated installed on an iPhone or similar device, even from of the vehicle. Even more: the application users can query the charge status and vehicle (the latter via map display) or check whether the car is locked. to preserve vehicle battery the program lets users the E-Up! interior.

This cooling or heating the car’s as long as the car is still connected to the station and is drawing its electrical from the electrical grid.

II – 3+1 seating concept

The generous implemented over a total area of just 5.1 square is absolutely astounding. Several are responsible for this clever First, there is the reduced of the instrument panel, which was further forward than toward the engine compartment. was enabled, among other by optimising the components within the panel. Second, the small is a 3+1 seater.

This means the front passenger seat is 50 millimetres forward, thanks to the being shifted further This layout increases leg in the rear behind the front tremendously. As a result, two adults can sit on the passenger’s side. Stepping the vehicle is also simplified by an feature, which allows the passenger’s seat to be pushed up to 270 away from the rear

Volkswagen e-Up![226]

There is less leg room the normally positioned driver’s the space here was designed as a seat.

Additional freedom of is provided to rear passengers by the centre tunnel in front of the bench seat; it serves as an footrest. This enables use of an handbrake in the style of the Passat, so no lever mechanism obstructs the

Cargo area: The clever solutions do not end there: To optimise in the rear, the rear seat is split 40/60. When the on the driver’s seat is folded (40 percent section), stowage is increased from 85 to 180 litres loading to the upper edge of the seat backrest). This space can be enclosed by a load that folds down out the folded backrest. When the rear seating backrest is down, a stowage capacity of 320 is created. It is even 520 litres loaded to the roofliner.

To transport objects, the front passenger’s can also be folded to a pass-through In this configuration, the E-Up! can objects up to two metres in length.

This high degree of will also certainly the affordable production version of an Up! by an electric motor. That is electric cars, as Prof. Dr.

Winterkorn insists and therefore into the specification for this Volkswagen, must be truly and offer uncompromising everyday

Micro-mobility in the city – made by

Volkswagen is comprehensively addressing of this everyday practicality. efforts not only encompass the itself, but the entire environment the car driver. In the city, for example, includes the realisation that parking the E-Up! people want to cover shorter without a car – from the job to lunch, to the studio, another meeting, is on the day’s schedule. For these trips, the Volkswagen Micro-mobility in the concept team has invented zero-emission micro-vehicles.

The Kickstep, for which is an ultra-compact folding And the electrically powered Microbully, a that also fits in the E-Up! load space. is also the ped-tric, a folding with electric motors into the wheel hubs could also make the to the city aboard the E-Up! And the VW_1M, a large electric – the size of a carry-on case not in use – that could be stowed in the without even needing to down the rear bench Such micro-mobility solutions created at the Volkswagen Design in Potsdam.

So the E-Up! will be many things into In 2013 this will a reality for the first time.
