Most of the cars released from VAG become hit on the market very fast. Because of their reliability, cheap price and nice exterior and interior. Hopefully the E-UP will be a successful, too.

The small car is powered by an electric motor developing up to 81 PS and 154 lbs ft of torque. With this characteristics the E-UP! can accelerate to 100km/h in 11.3 seconds and the top speed is 135km/h. The overall weight of the vehicle is only 1,085kg of which 240 kilos are batteries.

The maximum range with fully charged batteries is around 80 miles.

In spite of the small measures of the E-UP! - 3,199 mm in length and a 2,190 mm wheelbase the inner space is large enough for 3 adults plus a child. The total loadspace is 85-litres, rising to 320-litres when the seats are folded.

Probably the VW E-UP! will be put on sale during 2013.
