Volkswagen goes green for up! and Golf

The Frankfurt Motor Show event in September (10th to 22nd) will see two brand new Volkswagen models revealed - both featuring electric motors.

The German car giant will unveil its e-up! and e-Golf models, with the energy efficient models expected to cause a buzz when they are finally presented to motoring enthusiasts.

It is a sure sign that Europe's most successful car manufacturer is looking into the future of electric vehicles, turning two of its highest volume production models into zero-emission models.

According to Volkswagen, not only do the cars provide everyday practicality, but they feature four doors and have a number of attractive fittings.

As standard, the cars will have automatic climate control with parking heater and ventilation, as well as a radio-navigation system, windscreen heating and LED daytime running lights. However, the e-Golf will also see Volkswagen's first use of LED headlights.

Both vehicles are at the top of their game when it comes to energy efficiency, with the e-up! consuming 11.7 kWh of electricity per 100km, while the e-Golf! takes in 12.7 kWh over the same distance.

If current electricity prices in Germany are anything to go by, a 100km journey can be made for just €3.02 (£2.55) in the e-up!, with the e-Golf can make the same journey for €3.30.

The driving ranges have been tailored to meet the needs of commuters, Volkswagen has said, with the e-up! able to travel 160km on one battery charge and the e-Golf able to continue for 190km, due to a larger battery.
