Volkswagen e-Up!

We went to Keynes to drive the Yorkshire the e-Up! – the electric version of the VW Up! the product or model naming in Germany have never of Yorkshire or their well-known

The e-Up! is powered by a 60 kW or 80hp motor, which is installed the bonnet in the standard engine where it drives the front It accelerates from 0 — in 4.9 seconds and to 0 — 62mph in seconds and goes on to a top speed of 81 This is in comparison the 1.0 75ps version of the Up. which accelerates 0 — 62mph in 13.2 and can go on to a top speed of 106 mph.

The electric motor produces an 210Nm of torque which to the just 95Nm for the 1.0 75ps version.

The lithium-ion battery which supplies the power to the motor, weighs in at 230kg and is up of 17 modules each with 12 The battery pack is rated at  The battery pack, is 1726mm long and 1132mm lies flat within the floor between the front and seats.

The e-Up! can be charged a standard household 13 amp three pin using the cable provided. It can be charged in 9 hours. An optional box for home garage use provides supply and can recharge a completely battery in 6 hours.

Using a combined charging system and DC supply the e-Up! can be charged to 80% in 30 minutes. The official range on a charge is around 100 miles, but in 70 miles is a more realistic

The complex power electronics weighs 10.5 kg and controls the of high voltage power the e-motor and the lithium-ion battery This module includes a invertor control circuit the DC/DC convertor, a DC link and a controller board. All very and not the sort of thing your mechanic would be able to But VW, like other EV manufacturers do specialists in this field.

are all fully trained for any eventuality and are to keep the car on the road. Only 24 out of the of 208 dealers are electric car outlets.

We took to the road in the e-Up! Milton Keynes and it proved to be and efficient. The automatic gearbox was with all those roundabouts to go The handling seemed to be just as as the petrol version and with all weight so close to the floor, it probably be even better on more challenging roads.

The is easy to drive and understand, put it into Drive (D) to go forward and (R) to go backwards and away it goes, and quietly. But to complicate it a bit there is D1, D2, D3 and B. In D, the car coasts without regenerative when the accelerator is lifted. In of the next levels, lifting off the pedal provides an increased of regenerative braking. In D2, D3 and B, the brake are automatically activated when the foot is lifted from the pedal, which could be or dangerous for vehicles following.

It is perhaps best just to it in D for safety, in my opinion.

The e-Up! Is available as a five-door and uses the top from the petrol version the so it’s fully loaded and you want for nothing else in a car. The list of standard is endless and far too long to mention.

From the exterior the e-Up! very similar to the Up. but with small unique features, as different alloy wheels, chrome VW roundels, a discreet badge and some very and distinctive LED day running lights.

The is built in Volkswagen’s Bratislava in Slovakia and has a standard 3 year or mile warranty, with an 8 year or 100,000 mile pack warranty.

The e-Up! is at £24,250 OTR, less the EV Government grant of £5,000, it £19,250. This does expensive compared to the petrol which is nearly half the But running costs for the electric are minimal and the savings will some of the extra capital although having to refuel 70 miles as opposed to around 400 miles, for the petrol version, may some potential buyers a
