Volkswagen has announced the e-up! electric city car has received a series of updates and a reduction in its price.

Despite the reduced price, Volkswagen has added more standard equipment, including height adjustment to the driver’s seat, a rear-view camera that’s displayed on the five-inch screen and new seat trim.

What hasn’t changed is the 18.7kWh battery pack, which allows for 83 miles of range on the WLTP cycle and it can be charged from empty to 80 per cent full in just 30 minutes at a fast charging point.

Joe Laurence, Volkswagen UK electric vehicles product manager, said: “The e-up! is a key part of our electric vehicle family, offering the ideal solution for zero tailpipe-emission urban motoring."

“For 2019, we’re offering customers even more value with the addition of several extra features to the e-up! as standard, as well as a major price realignment making the car even more affordable. This is, of course, on top of the tax and fuel cost savings which are built into the e-up!.”
