Volkswagen e-load up!
Volkswagen chose Frankfurt to reveal its e-load up! concept, a very small van based on its electric e-up! model.

Perfect for jobs where a large van would be simply inefficient, the e-load up! is perfect for the likes of service technicians, couriers, pizza deliveries or social services. The rear windows have been replaced by plastic panels, while the cabin features a driver’s seat and a fold-down passenger seat. That sparse interior sees the cargo capacity increase from 951 to over 1,400 litres, with a total load of 306 kg possible. That’s a lot of pizza.

The motor propelling the e-up! develops 60 kW (80 hp) and 210 Nm of torque, allowing 100 km/h to appear in 12.4 seconds before the fun stops at 130 km/h. A range of 160 kilometres can be covered on one battery charge (18.7 kWh), with a mere 11.7 kWh of electricity used every 100 km. Working on today’s electricity price of €0.258 per kWh in Germany, that equates to a mere €3.02 per 100 km travelled.
