The Volkswagen e-Up! ceased to be marketed throughout Europe in the middle of last year due to a high demand impossible to satisfy in a few weeks. To avoid that in some cases the waiting year could be reached, the firm chose to remove it from the market.
According to a statement sent to German dealers, Volkswagen’s small electric can now be purchased again in that country and may also be offered in other markets where the e-Up! has achieved a high quota.
There are no changes in the already known proposal, so the e-Up! is equipped with an 83 hp electric motor in combination with a 32 kWh capacity battery (26.8 useful) which gives it a range of 260 km according to the WLTP approval cycle.
In Germany, those interested can choose between two trim levels, Style and Style Plus.. Both have automatic climate control, CCS charging, 15-inch alloy wheels, multifunction leather steering wheel, sound system, electric windows, remote closing and electric mirrors.
In the most complete versions, the rear camera is also included, parking sensors, heated seats, specific upholstery with eco-leather inserts, etc. Prices have not yet been announced but it is clear that it will be more expensive than the Dacia Spring, one of its main rivals.
