The future is electric
The new e-up! is ready to drive you into the future of motoring
Electric is here to stay
Embrace the future of motoring with the new e-up!. Compact, all-electric and perfect for city driving, the e-up! creates zero emissions while the car is moving. Not only is it great for the environment, it’s also fun to drive. Achieving 0-62mph in just 12.4 seconds, and with a range of up to 99 miles on a single charge*, the e-up! is your ideal everyday runaround.
Go the distance
Wondering whether the new e-up! will get you from A to B? You can be confident that with just one charge, you’re ready to roll.
Small size. Big performance.
Leading the way in electric technology
The new e-up! makes pioneering technologies accessible to everyone. Which means you can look forward to driving a technically refined, ground-breaking electric car that’s ideal for everyday use, built with high levels of quality and comfort as standard. Then again, it’s a Volkswagen. What else would you expect?
An advanced battery that gives you extra room to boot
We’re so confident that the sophisticated battery in the e-up! will go the distance that we give you an 8-year/99,360 mile guarantee as standard. In conjunction with the sophisticated drive system, you get 82 PS maximum output and 210 Nm of torque. Even better, the battery is positioned under the seats: this protects it from impact, and also maximizes boot space.
Make the most of your energy
When a car brakes, it normally loses energy. Thanks to its recuperation technology, the e-up! takes this energy and uses it to power the battery, so you recharge the car every time you brake. You can choose from four different, easy-to-activate recuperation modes to make sure you have optimal brake energy recovery.
As connected as you are
You’re used to using your smartphone to manage your life. Now you can use it to manage your car, too.
Helping you drive more efficiently
‘Think Blue. Trainer.’ is an app that acts like your own personal driving coach. It analyses your accelerating and braking characteristics, and lets you know how you can drive more efficiently. If you want to see how you’re doing, you can use ‘Maps + More’ to show you a visualisation of your energy flow and recuperation statistics – great for at-a-glance checks while you drive. You can also use the e-Manager to optimise your car’s settings. Simply tell it when you want to leave, how much cargo you’re carrying and what air-conditioning setting you’d like, and the e-up! will adapt itself to your journey.
Everything you want, at your fingertips
You want to use your phone to navigate? ‘Maps + More’ takes care of that with 2D or 3D hands-free guidance via TomTom. How about connecting your phone contacts and music to your e-up!? Yep, that’s covered too, and the handy handwriting recognition function makes it easy. And you can stay connected while you’re away from your car. Use the app to find where you parked, remotely check the outside temperature, activate the climate control air conditioning before you reach the car, monitor your charge levels and even start or stop charging. That’s just the beginning. You can explore the full range of smartphone services on our Car-Net page.
Here's a plug for technology
An electric motor. An electronic interior. We’ve packed technology into the e-up!, both inside and out.
You’ll never be bored in the e-up!. The Composition Colour system features a 5-inch colour touch-screen, an AUX-in connection for devices like your iPod or MP3 player, a DAB digital radio receiver, SD card reader, music playback from MP3, WMA and AAC files, USB connectivity and six speakers in the front and rear. If you’d rather talk than listen, you can use the Bluetooth telephone and audio connection to make calls to friends and family*.
Sophistication on the inside and out
An interior designed with you in mind, and an exterior that delights in details. There’s a lot to love about the new e-up!.
Looks as good as it feels
You might not expect much luxury in the new e-up!. But you’d be wrong. From the leather trimmed three-spoke steering wheel to the gear knob gaiter, handbrake grip and ‘Sharkskin’ dashpad, high-quality craftsmanship surrounds you. If that doesn’t impress you, the heated front seats with three individual temperature settings will do.
Finishing touches make all the difference
You’ll be proud to own the new e-up!. So we’ve added understated, sophisticated styling features that make it uniquely recognisable. A blue and chrome strip below the bonnet lip, signature ‘C’ lights around the door handles and stylish 15-inch ‘Tezzle’ alloy wheels add the perfect finishing touch.
