Volkswagen e-up! and e-Golf announced

Volkswagen e-up! and e-Golf
Volkswagen has revealed intial details of two new electric cars that will make their world debut in Frankfurt next month; the e-up! and e-Golf.

Both cars are four door variants and come equipped with automatic climate control, radio-navigation system, windscreen heating and LED daytime running lights as standard. The e-Golf also receives the Volkswagen brand’s first LED headlights.

Powered by an electric motor producing 85 kW (114 hp) and a maximum torque figure of 270 Nm, the e-Golf reaches 100 km/h in 10.4 seconds while top speed is limited to 140 km/h. The motor propelling the e-up! develops 60 kW (80 hp) and 210 Nm of torque allowing 100 km/h to appear in in 12.4 seconds before the fun stops at 130 km/h.

The e-up! can cover 160 km on one battery charge (18.7 kWh), while the e-Golf can reach 190 km thanks to its larger battery (24.2 kWh) has a range of 190 km. Eco and Eco+ driving modes, along with four regenerative braking modes help to maximize range, while an 80 percent charge takes just thirty minutes at a (direct current) CCS charging station.

Amazingly, the e-up! consumes just 11.7 kWh of electricity every 100 km, while its larger sibling requires 12.7 kWh. Working on today’s electricity price of €0.258 per kWh in Germany, that equates to a mere €3.02 per 100 km travelled in the e-up! and €3.30 in the e-Golf.
