ChargedUp: Volkswagen e-Up! (2014) Electric Car Review

Volkswagen’s first entry into the modern electric car market is the e-Up!. Based on their city Up platform, the e-Up! is a fully electric vehicle capable of carrying four adults (although possibly more suited to two adults and two children) in a way that is both practical and immensely enjoyable.

Transport Evolved got invited to the official press launch where we recorded our first impressions. This was followed up by a week loan of the car, our QuickCharge review of this car was taken at the beginning of this week. But what did Nikki and Mark think of the e-Up! after having lived with it for a week?

The e-Up! costs £19,250 including the UK Government £5000 grant. But what does this get you? On paper you may be forgiven for thinking the e-Up! isn’t that impressive. The 0 – 62mph time is 12.4 seconds, the top speed is 80mph and its range is only 93 miles on the NEDC test cycle.
