Already a much talked about model, the new Up! is both fuel efficient and practical, making it suitable for both city trip and longer journeys. With 67.2 combined mpg and 95 gCO2/km due partly to start-stop technology, running costs will be low, with free VED road tax and London Congestion Charge.
VW say they will launch a battery electric version in 2013 - the Up! Blue-e-Motion. Top speed is 100 mph and 0 to 62 takes 14.4 seconds.Built on the same chassis as the SEAT Mii and Skoda Citygo.
