Volkswagen e-Golf and e-up! revealed ahead of Frankfurt debut

Volkswagen is bringing two new high volume production models with electric power to next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

The e-Golf consumes 12.7 kWh of electricity per 62 miles and e-up! just 11.7 kWh, which in Germany translates to just €3.02 (£2.60) and €3.30 (£2.84) respectively.

Both models will be available exclusively with four doors. The Volkswagen e-Golf is powered by a 115bhp electric motor with 270 Nm of torque, enabling it to reach 0-62 mph in 10.4 seconds before topping out at an electronically-limited top speed of 81 mph. The 24.2 kWh battery is good for a range of 118 miles.

The e-up! uses a 82bhp electric motor with 210 Nm of torque, good for a 0-62 mph sprint in 12.4 seconds and a limited top speed of 81 mph. The 18.7 kWh battery offers a range of a 99 miles.

Market availability and pricing details will be announced next month.
