It might be the last all-electric Volkswagen that doesn’t come with an ID. badge.
Volkswagen unveiled at the EV-rich 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show the 2nd model evolution of the e-up! (accompanied with its derivatives Škoda CITIGOe iV and SEAT Mii Electric), an entry-level, small city EV for four.
The new version is quite similar to the previous one, but at a significantly lower price tag of €21,975 ($24,271) before incentives (in Germany) and with a 36.8 kWh battery pack (32.3 kWh usable) for up to 260 km (162 miles) of WLTP range, it’s simply a way more attractive offer.
Upgrade of the e-up! was actually a necessity these days, as competition moves forward quickly as well. Moreover, it was a good opportunity because now the e-up! is available also under Škoda and SEAT brands.
Will the new e-up! sell in significant volume? It’s too early to judge, but at least it supports the outgoing Volkswagen e-Golf before the Volkswagen ID.3 comes in in mid-2020. Let’s check the latest photos and videos from the show.
