Volkswagen has finally lifted the covers for its first electric vehicle called the E-up!. Though a bit late, the said car is set to make its debut at the Annual Press and Investors Conference.
Among the features of the E-up! include its capability of travelling up to 93 miles (150 km) on a single charge. The E-up can seat up to four vehicles and actually debuted first in 2009 over at the Frankfurt Motor Show as a concept vehicle.
The e-up! Comes powered by an 81HP electric motor and 18.7 kWh lithium-ion battery. The motor puts out 155 lb-ft (210 Nm) of torque and sends the car rolling to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 14 seconds. The E-up! can reach a top speed of 83 mph (135 km/h).
The car doesn’t receive the intensive weight savings of the XL1, but it does manage to keep light at 2,612 lbs. (1,185 kg).
The E-up! will make its official auto show debut over at the Frankfurt Motor Show where VW will reportedly start taking in orders thereafter.
