VW e-Up! review

NGC verdict 22.06.2017

Volkswagen has given its up! range a mild update, and the all-electric e-up! has benefited from the tweaks to the range too. Given that the little EV was one of the vanguard of electric vehicles to come over to the UK, it is important that changes have been made. The EV market moves much quicker than those for conventionally powered machines, with the likes of the Nissan Leaf, Renault Zoe, BMW i3, and VW e-Golf all having been updated recently or with changes confirmed for later this year. Next Green Car tested the new e-up! to see what it offers post-refresh.
