The all-electric e-Up! is perfect for city living
The e-up! is the completely electric version of the multi-award-winning up!. With all the attributes and extras that make the original such a lovable success, the e-up! is a nippy yet spacious eco-warrior that’s made for tackling the city.
e-Golf: where sustainability meets power
Everybody loves a Golf, which is why we based our latest electric vehicle on the multi-award-winning Golf hatchback. We’ve kept the Golf’s virtues of practicality, refinement and advanced technology to create an all-electric all star.
Experience the best of both worlds with the Golf GTE
With the Golf GTE, you get a vehicle that relies on its electric motor when driving around the city, and then kicks things up a gear for the longer journeys and faster rides with its 1.4 litre 150 PS TSI direct-injection petrol engine.
Passat GTE: Two engines – double the performance
The Passat and Passat Estate have both moved over to the green side with their GTE equivalents: the Passat GTE in Saloon and Estate. Just like the Golf GTE, they rely on two engines that they switch between for optimum performance: an innovative electric motor and a conventional petrol engine.

Electric technology is in our blood
We’ve been exploring electric and hybrid technology for over 40 years. And we can’t wait to show you what we’ve got planned for the future.
Cars of the future that are capable of changing how we view electric drive systems
In 1970, we established a ‘Future Research’ division that focused on the drive technologies of tomorrow. Two years later, the first Volkswagen Transporter with an electric drive system was unveiled and we began our exciting journey into electric and hybrid vehicles.
Fast-forward 40 years and we’re set to unveil one of our most exciting ranges: The I.D. family. From 2020-2022, we’ll have three brand-new, state-of-the-art electric vehicles on the roads: The I.D. hatch, I.D. Crozz SUV and the Microbus-inspired I.D. Buzz.
Our future is electric
The I.D. range is about to hit the road, and it’s just the beginning of our innovation in electric technology.
Volkswagen and our innovations of tomorrow
We’ve got a lot of exciting projects in the pipeline that are happening in our innovation and research centres around the world. We use these centres to develop some of the world’s leading technology, such as electrical solutions for our drive systems and how we can improve battery life. We hope to be a technology leader in automotive traction batteries by 2025 and are working with the entire Volkswagen Group to pool our resources and expertise and ensure that electric vehicle technology is widely adopted sooner rather than later.
