This electric vehicle is not available yetVW hasn't officially announced the next generation e-Up! as of yet. It is expected that the compact EV will get a battery with around double the capacity of the current generation. The added capacity will add significant range, but will probably also increase power output and charging rates. Unlike the upcoming range of VW I.D. models, the e-Up will not be built on the MEB-platform. It will however utilize the NSF-platform that will also underpin the closely related Skoda e-Citigo and SEAT eMii. It is expected that production of the next generation e-Up will commence in late 2019, with deliveries possibly starting at the very end of the year. Prices are expected to start just below prices of the current e-Up.
Please note: images shown are of the current e-Up.

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! Gen 2. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
NOTE: Volkswagen has not released details about the on-board charger of the e-Up! Gen 2. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||18 hours||7 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||11h15m||11 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||5h45m||22 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW||3h45m||32 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW †||3h45m||32 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! Gen 2.
Volkswagen has not released details about rapid charging the e-Up! Gen 2. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely rapid charging capabilities.
- 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%
|Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Avg. Power||Time||Rate|
|CCS (50 kW DC)||50 kW||45 kW||35 min||140 mph|
|CCS (100 kW DC)||75 kW †||60 kW †||25 min||200 mph|
|CCS (175 kW DC)||75 kW †||60 kW †||25 min||200 mph|

NOTE: Most rapid charges are currently limited to 50 kW. Chargers with more power are expected in the near future.
All about the Volkswagen e-Up! Gen 2
The Volkswagen e-Up! Gen 2 has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £18,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Volkswagen e-Up! Gen 2 is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Volkswagen e-Up! Gen 2 is £15,000.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Volkswagen e-Up! Gen 2 is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Volkswagen e-Up! Gen 2 is 70 kW (94 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 166 lb-ft. The Volkswagen e-Up! Gen 2 is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 10.0 seconds. The estimated top speed is 87 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Volkswagen e-Up! Gen 2 has an estimated total capacity of 35 kWh. The usable capacity is 35 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 120 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.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 3 hours 45 minutes. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 5 hours 45 minutes and a charge rate of 22 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 18 hours.
Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 75 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 60 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 25 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 80 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Volkswagen e-Up! Gen 2 is about 290 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 139 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.
The Volkswagen e-Up! Gen 2 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.
