Volkswagen UK has announced that the order book for its e-up! will be opened on Monday.

Priced from £19,250 following the £5,000 Government-backed subsidy, deliveries will begin at the end of January. A three-year warranty comes as standard, with an optional one or two year extension, while the battery comes with an eight-year, 100,000-mile warranty.

With an underfloor-mounted 18.7 kWh lithium-ion battery feeding the electric motor, continuous output is 40 kW (54 hp) with a peak power figure of 60 kW (80 hp) achievable, while the 210 Nm of torque is available from the first revolution. On the road, 100 km/h appears in a respectable 12.4 seconds before the silent citycar hits its top speed of 130 km/h (81 mph).

The e-up! can be recharged to as much as 80 per cent of its energy storage capacity within just 30 minutes, while the car’s low weight of 1,185 kg helps it cover a range of 150 kilometres on a single charge.

Visually, the e-up! differs from its petrol-driven sibling thanks to the aerodynamically optimised front, sills and underbody. There’s also a set of machine-polished 15-inch alloy wheels, c-shape LED daytime running lights in the front bumper and blue-backed badging.
