Welcome to the e-Up! forum! We’re happy that Volkswagen has made good on its promise to bring an electric version of the super popular Up! city car.
The E-Up! will first be available in Norway in late November 2013, with orders opening in the UK in December 2013.
The unique design of the electric Up! doesn’t require a gearbox of any kind, so drive train noise is basically non-existent. With a 60 kW electric motor, and an 18.7 kWh lithium-ion battery pack integrated into the floor, the E-Up! can accelerate from 0-100km/h in under 14 seconds, and has a driving range of 150 km on the European test cycle.
The Volkswagen E-Up! Forum joins the largest family of electric vehicle forums on the internet. With over 20 electric vehicle specific forums, the My Electric Car Forums group also runs an EV specific blogging platform where you can write about your electric vehicle journey and share your EV experiences with other owners and enthusiasts.
