New e-up! is a Next Green Car Award Winner
Volkswagen’s popular up! family has been a consistent winner since its launch in 2011 and, following a refresh of the exterior and interior styling, plus an extensive redesign of the infotainment system, the awards keep on coming.
The judges of the Next Green Car Awards were suitably impressed by the new e-up!: “Already one of the best city cars around, Volkswagen has made its e-up! even better with sharper looks and improved equipment. Fun to drive, cheap to run, and with zero tailpipe emissions, this little Volkswagen is an ideal urban runabout.”
The refreshed e-up! went on sale in the UK in September. It’s powered by an 82 PS electric motor that has a 204-cell lithium-ion battery pack located within the car’s floor. It is rated at 374 volts, or 18.7 kWh. The important figure is the range: The e-up! can travel 93 miles between charges, and charging the e-up! to 80 per cent takes just 30 minutes via a fast-charge connection.
