Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Volkswagen e-Up hatchback?

Check for bumps and scrapes to the bumpers and bodywork, as this will all cost money to put right. Also, the e-Up provides its infotainment system through an app on your smartphone, which is held in a cradle on top of the dashboard. As this is removable, check that the previous owner has left it in the car. Also, make sure the car comes with all of its charging cables and that they're in good condition, since they can be expensive to replace.

Look in the boot when you go to view an e-Up, because only its floor is carpeted. The sides are exposed paint and could easily be damaged by the contents of whatever has been stowed in there.
