Volkswagen have announced an electric van model of the Up! Sort of.
Aimed at pizza delivery drivers, couriers, service technicians etc the e-load up! has just one seat for the driver, a fold up passenger seat and 1 m3 of rear load space.
The eload-up weighs 1,164kg and can carry a load of 206 KG. Output of 82 PS and 210 Nm of instant torque means it accelerates from 0-62 in 12.4 seconds. It can travel up to 99 miles on a single charge.
It makes sense if you don’t have long distances to travel, and only work in towns or cities. Not entirely sure why they kept the rear doors and didn’t use the more suitable looking 3 door model, after all they are the same size?!
Its only a concept at this stage.
