It’s easy to see why the Up works so well as an electric car. This is after all a car designed for city and urban use. Besides, the standard model is a big success for Volkswagen; with neat styling, small size yet spacious interior. These strengths all remain with the e-Up and as the lithium-ion battery is integrate into the vehicle floor there’s no compromise with interior space. Also, it can travel up to 100 miles on a single charge although this is a best case scenario. However, it is expensive compare to the rest of the Up range but it does come very well equipped as standard with a heated windscreen, DAB radio, climate control, navigation, rear parking sensors and 15-inch alloys.
