The Volkswagen Up! is a compact car with tons of charm, with practical in-car options that include sat-nav and Bluetooth connectivity.
A choice of two three-cylinder petrol engines for the up! boost the car from 0-60mph in as little as 13.2 seconds and all the way up to a top speed of around 106mph. Volkswagen’s innovative BlueMotion technology built into each engine includes the Start/Stop system – a handy feature that prevents fuel from being wasted whilst you’re idling or stuck in traffic. Drivers will also enjoy reduced emissions alongside their increased fuel economy, as all Up! engines meet tough EURO 5 standards.
Volkswagen has designed the Up! to be small and mighty – it’s got an exceptionally tough shell, and has even been partially galvanised both to protect you and prevent rusting. Within the cabin, you and your passengers will feel reassured by the front and side airbags that inflate in milliseconds, and ABS to complement the power-assisted steering.
The e-up! has an electric motor which produces 60 kW/82 PS, transmitting 210 Nm of torque from standstill. It completes the sprint from 0 to 62mph in 12.4 seconds. Top speed is 80mph.
Two driving modes, Eco and Eco+, and four regenerative braking modes (D1, D2, D3, and B) combine to maximise the car's range and efficiency.
Key features of the new e-Up! include:
The e-up! can be charged using a domestic household three-pin socket, dedicated wall box or on-street DC charger. JCB Volkswagen can organise installation of a wall box at your home. Motorway service stations are one of many locations that have charging points too.
