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