Self Study Program 527 – The e-up! PDF. The e-up! is the first electric vehicle from Volkswagen to go into mass production. Its distinctive characteristic is the curved light signature; an LED daytime running light in the front bumper.
As well using innovative, sophisticated technology, the primary objective for the e-up! was to develop a safe vehicle which meets demand and is suitable for everyday use.
It is the first time that large-scale use of renewable energy has been possible. Exclusively in Germany, Volkswagen is offering electricity under the name BluePower*. The energy is generated without CO2 and is taken solely from hydroelectric power plants*.
The pleasure of driving and environmental awareness are no longer mutually exclusive.
The maximum drive torque of the electric drive is 210 newton metres and the maximum power is 60 kilowatts.
This means the e-up! can powerfully accelerate from zero km/h. Aerodynamic features and the lithium ion high-voltage battery with a capacity of 18.7 kWh enable a range of up to 160 km.
