VW: new info on e-Up with orders to open this year
The new edition of the VW e-Up will be presented at the IAA coming September. Customers can already register for the new model on the Dutch website, and further information on the small electric car was released on the Norwegian VW homepage.
Accordingly, the new e-Up will be available for order from autumn 2019 after the IAA and will be delivered from January 2020. The VW BEV shares its technology with the already introduced sister models Skoda Citigo e iV and Seat Mii electric.
The Norwegian website states a WLTP range of the new VW e-Up as up to 260 km. The Dutch speak of “more than 250 kilometres”. Worth noting: The old e-Up only had an NEDC range of 160 km, while the new values are measured according to WLTP.
The charging time in the Netherlands is given as four hours to 80 per cent (AC with 7.2 kW), on a DC charger with 40 kW it takes one hour. This means that the AC charging capacity has doubled compared to its predecessor (3.6 kW), while the DC charging capacity remains the same.
VW has not quoted prices in either country. Registration in the Netherlands is without a down payment – so it seems to be more of a promotion for dealers’ customer files than a reservation for a limited offer. In Norway, interested parties can sign up for a newsletter which will inform them about further information, prices and bookings as soon as the information is published.
