Volkswagen e-Up! Gets £3,250 Value Boost

Volkswagen e-Up! Gets £3,250 Value Boost


Volkswagen’s smallest electric car, the e-up!, is now even bigger value with a host of updates bringing more equipment and a price revision offering four-figure savings.

The e-up! city car now benefits from more standard-fit equipment including height adjustment for the driver’s seat.

A rear-view camera is also built-in to give owners the reassurance of parking in tight urban spaces without worry while, on the inside, a stylish new seat trim design provides extra flair.

The addition of this big-car technology demonstrates Volkswagen’s commitment to providing the best value electric vehicles to customers, a commitment amplified by the car’s new price of £23,115 RRP OTR** or £19,615 RRP OTR including the Government Plug-In Car Grant – a saving of £2,935 over the car’s previous list price, and an overall saving of £3,250 with the additional equipment factored in.

Volkswagen UK Electric Vehicles Product Manager Joe Laurence, said:

The e-up! is a key part of our electric vehicle family, offering the ideal solution for zero tailpipe-emission urban motoring.

For 2019, we’re offering customers even more value with the addition of several extra features to the e-up! as standard, as well as a major price realignment making the car even more affordable. This is, of course, on top of the tax and fuel cost savings which are built into the e-up!.

As before, the e-up! uses a 374 volt, 18.7 kWh battery pack to give a WLTP-rated range of 83 miles, and consumption of just 11.7 kWh/62 miles combined. A full charge takes nine hours from a standard three-pin plug, or six hours from a 3.6 kWh wall box. A rapid charge point can provide 80 per cent capacity in just 30 minutes.

The updated e-up! is now available to order with the Government’s £3,500 Plug-In Car Grant also applicable to the zero-emission city car.
