A £2,500 Plug-In Car Grant is currently offered by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) to eligible manufacturers to promote the purchase of vehicles which can travel a defined distance with zero emissions.
The ID.3, ID.4, e‑Golf and e‑up! currently qualify for the grant where the RRP is less than £35,000. Grant eligibility is based on the recommended retail price (RRP) including number plates, VED and VAT, delivery charges, administration fees and selected options affecting battery capacity, drive train configuration or maximum net power. No grant is available for vehicles costing £35,000 RRP or more.
More than just an electrifying arrival
Head out into the blue! The efficient electric drive system in the e‑up! extends both the range and the driving pleasure to up to 260 km. You stay perfectly connected even while travelling: thanks to the numerous public charging stations which you can effortlessly find using maps + more. Europe-wide. There you can pay for the recharging with your Charge&Fuel card. Europe-wide. But best of all: the locally emission-free drive helps to reduce CO2. This has a positive effect on the climate.
Charged on Time
Plug in and power up – that’s how you charge an electric car. Normally. The e‑up! doesn’t have to be charged as soon as you plug it in, thanks to the time-delayed charging option. What’s the good in that? Depending on electricity rates, you can save cold hard cash because, for instance, you can charge at night and take advantage of lower prices. Simply enter your desired departure time under the e-manager in the maps + more app or the We Connect app, press the charging mode button in the middle console and plug the vehicle in to the wallbox. Then, at the pre-programmed time, you’ll be ready to drive.
e-up! + Smartphone = Love
What do your favourite songs, up-to-date traffic information and phone calls while driving all have in common? That’s right: your smartphone! Together with the maps + more dock plus the free new app for iOS and Android, your smartphone transforms the e‑up! into a networked car in only a matter of moments. With the standard “Composition Phone” radio system featuring six loudspeakers, your car becomes a mobile boom box. Simply connect the e‑up! and your smartphone. Done! No more complicated displays. Just plug & play.
The full range
The e‑up!offers even more standard features yet costs less than ever. Practical and perfectly equipped: the “Lane Assist”, traffic sign reminder, fully-fledged head and side airbags as well as the new seat occupant detection for rear passengers are all on board. The standard combination of the “Composition Phone” radio system with 6 loudspeakers, DAB+, maps + more dock and We Connect makes every drive smart and simple: just get in, start the music and set the route - let’s drive!
The e‑up! is our proof that a small car has a lot to offer – thanks to its fresh, minimalistic design. And also thanks to its dynamic electric drive system, of course. With its blue decorative trim strip and integrated Volkswagen badge together with the striking C-signature LED lights, the electric drive is obvious even at a distance.
Choose the e‑up! Style. A black or white roof and matching black or white exterior mirrors, tinted rear and side window together with the 15-inch “Blade” alloy wheels are combined to create your own unique signature look. The e‑up! Style is also available with optional 16-inch “Upsilon” alloy wheels.
Welcome to the comfort zone
And the interior? The seats with their “Fusion” design and seamlessly integrated headrests together with the stylish “Black Cube” dash pad immediately catch your eye. Sophisticated details ensure plenty of comfort plus practical benefits. The bag hook in the glove compartment is a standard feature and is the perfect place to hang your handbag, for example. The variable luggage compartment floor makes room for one more bag the next time you go shopping.
The e‑up! Style goes one step further: for example, with seats featuring the “cross”, the 3-D “Shark Skin” dash pad along with the stylish blue ambient lighting.
