Volkswagen’s first electric car, the e-up!, is available to order in the UK, priced at £19,250 on the road after the government’s £5,000 plug-in car grant.
Based on the petrol-powered up! supermini, the e-up features an 82bhp electric motor and lithium-ion battery, offering a range of 93 miles depending on ambient conditions and driving style. Eco and Eco+ driving modes cut the power output to 67bhp and 53bhp respectively and reduce the drain from on-board systems to extend the range.
