The new Volkswagen e-up! represents a landmark for the German carmaker, with its first-ever all-electric vehicle.
This dynamic hatchback is regarded as the best city car around, and the latest environmentally-friendly incarnation offers a number of benefits beyond zero-emissions.
With such an advanced model you’d expect impressive safety features to be evident, and Volkswagen provides this to the highest standards.
Driver and passenger airbags, including side and head/thorax, provide protection in the event of a collision, complemented by three-point seat belts in the front and rear.
To keep you fully in control and reduce the chance of collisions, advanced systems including Electronic Stability Control and an Anti-lock Braking System are included as standard. Family-friendly, the new e-up! also includes ISOFIX preparation for two child seats.
The e-up! looks the part, with futuristic LED daytime running lights, 15-inch alloy wheels and a blue-rimmed chrome roundel. Large swept-back headlights and a prominent Volkswagen badge on the bonnet give the vehicle great visual appeal and suit its innovative persona.
Inside the e-up! is surprisingly spacious, and you’ll enjoy an ergonomically-designed cabin with fully supportive, comfortable seats. Volkswagen is known for its well-built engines, and the excellent craftsmanship extends to the interior, with the finest materials lining every surface.
The new e-up! is powered by an advanced 80bhp electric engine with a lithium-ion battery.
A multifunction computer is an essential tool included with this new electronic model, as it allows you to monitor charge, range, torque, recuperation and more.
Cruise control helps you to relax on longer journeys by setting a constant speed, while one-touch electric windows are a convenient addition. DAB digital radio and a touchscreen infotainment device allow you to create the desired atmosphere inside your new model.
