Introduction

What Car? says...

No, the Volkswagen e-Up isn’t named after a familiar Yorkshire expression – the extra vowel marks this out as the all-electric version of VW’s smallest car, the Up.

Electric cars tend to make the most sense in built-up urban areas, so you might think the little Volkswagen Up city car is the ideal starting point for one. And in many respects you'd be right. Just like a petrol-powered Up, the fully electric e-Up is blessed with tidy driving manners and turn-on-a-dime manoeuvrability.

That's what we'll be telling you over the next few pages of this review, as we rate the Volkswagen e-Up in all the important areas, including performance, interior quality, passenger space and running costs. We'll also let you know how it compares with the other electric cars you might be considering.

And remember, when you've decided which car is the right one for your needs, make sure you find it for the best price by searching our free What Car? New Car Buying service. It's a great place to find the latest Volkswagen e-Up deals.
