e-up! 2013-2016

Volkswagen e-up!

Launched in September 2013, the all-electric e-up! was joined by the all-electric e-Golf just a few months later. With these two models, full-production e-mobility had arrived at Volkswagen. The e-up! featured a range of innovative solutions to use energy extremely economically.

Total energy consumption of the e-up! was just 11.7 kWh per 100 kilometres. This was partially achieved thanks to improved aerodynamics (four per cent better than the Take up!) and optimised rolling resistance (seven per cent lower than the Take up!).

Additional improvements included the energy-saving drive system components, the highly effective regenerative braking system, innovative equipment modules and a newly developed, particularly efficient air conditioning system.

A compact electric motor (60 kW/82 PS), the lithium-ion battery integrated into the floor between the axles and the power electronics formed the hub of the new high-tech car’s drive system. The electric motor’s power was transferred to the front wheels via a single-speed gearbox.

The e-up! was comprehensively updated in 2016.
