Apparently cost meints VW to restart seriously with E-mobility: The “people power” VW ID 3 from the summer of 2020 in the 330-km-base variant of about 32’000 Swiss francs. Now VW puts in the in 2013 launched the E-Up, the cost after a series of price 26’600 Swiss francs reductions last. At the beginning of 2020, the battery of 18.7 to grow to 32.3 kWh, the range of barren 160 for a city stromer enough to 260 km. And at the same time, the price drops again!

the Swiss prices are still open. But in Germany the new E-Up will cost the equivalent of a good 24’000 Swiss francs.

is Cheaper (almost) none

a Little more expensive it is likely to be due to more standard equipment. Nevertheless, a challenge to the new Renault Zoe or Honda e. there in the VW, no LED’s, but more power consuming halogen light and a lot of plastic, a black-and-white info display and a tiny rear view camera Monitor. Cheaper are likely to wander well apart from not cars like Renault Twizy, only the older Mitsubishi iMiEV (21’950 Swiss francs) and his brothers Citroën C-Zero/Peugeot iOn (22’500 Swiss francs), and perhaps EQ the Fortwo and the Forfour (24’900/25’900 Swiss francs) Smart.

Felt really fast

on-the-Go makes it with only 3.60 metres in length and easy manoeuvring. Even otherwise, the E-Up mood. Although 61 kW (83 HP) sound lame, and paper data seem to confirm the with 11.9 seconds to 100 km/h and 130 km/h top. But Stromer drive very differently: 210 Nm of torque are always spontaneous, los felt the sprints in the city dwarf in a GTI.

In the Test 285 km

We have temperatures to be used in the case of mild outside (without air conditioning), mostly in the Agglo and across the country. Instead of 14.6 kWh/100 km (WLTP-Norm) we need without the Sneak only 9.3 kWh/100 km, and come instead of promised even 260 to 285 kilometers. The recuperation helps with four stages plus an additional stage by Moving the selector lever.

Jung in the sixth year

The city is the natural habitat of the 1229-pound VW, but also outside town, it is progressing fast. Curves of the E-Up like in the comfort of neat, the feeling of driving out of date by no means. Also, the Seating position fits. In the E-Hype of the E-Up has to start so maybe now is the late Chance to. In the way only his brothers could be him (see below) are.

Although there is the small, Volkswagen-group-drilling since 2011, as the Seat Mii, Skoda Citigo and VW Up. Electrically but there was so far only the VW E-Up. All three streamers, and the local prices of Seat Mii Electric and Skoda Citigo E iV are still open. But the experience, you are likely to be from the beginning of 2020 a little cheaper than the VW: In Germany, for example, the Skoda costs the equivalent of around 1100, the Seat 1450 Swiss francs less than the E-Up.
