Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Volkswagen e-Up!. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||9h45m||7 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||6 hours||11 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW †||6 hours||11 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW †||6 hours||11 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW †||6 hours||11 mph|
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)
Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Volkswagen e-Up!.
- Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
- Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
- Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
- Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%

All about the Volkswagen e-Up!
The Volkswagen e-Up! has a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £24,985 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £25,640. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Volkswagen e-Up! is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £4,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Volkswagen e-Up! is £21,140.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Volkswagen e-Up! is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Volkswagen e-Up! is 60 kW (80 hp). The maximum torque is 155 lb-ft. The Volkswagen e-Up! is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 12.4 seconds. The top speed is 81 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Volkswagen e-Up! has an estimated total capacity of 20 kWh. The usable capacity is 18.7 kWh. A range of about 65 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.
For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 45 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 100 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 3.7 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 6 hours. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 9 hours 45 minutes.
Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 50 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 40 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 20 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 45 miles of range.
The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Volkswagen e-Up! is about 285 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 141 mpg in a traditional petrol car.
The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 415 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 185 Wh per mile.
The Volkswagen e-Up! emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
