e-up!

  1. Moving from an e-Up! to an e-Golf

    Volkswagen e-UP!
    Our family are in the process of moving from our 2013 e-Up! to a 2014 e-Golf, the main reasons being one extra seat and a little more range. The Golf has arrived (thanks Tim) and we still have the e-Up! on the drive currently although will be selling it soon. Early observations are that the...
  2. VW Germany are recalling the e-Up to fix the battery casing

    Volkswagen e-UP!
    Over on one of the German forums, a number of folk say they have been contacted and the fix involves removing the battery and re-bonding the case halves together. Anyone had a call? I have translated this section below with Google Housing high voltage battery I have just received a call from...
  3. E-up! Closed for Ordering!

    Volkswagen e-UP!
    I note on the VW website it is shown as closed for ordering! What kind of committment to EVs is this?
  4. VW lowers UK price for e-Up by £3,000

    Volkswagen e-UP!
    Volkswagen has updated their UK pricing for the e-Up with a new basic price of £23,115 before subsidies, which will leave a purchasing price of about £19,600. The standard equipment has also been updated with driver’s seat functionality and a rear camera. Read the rest here VW lowers UK price...
  5. For Sale 15" spacesaver with 135/80R15 tyre for e-Up!

    Electric Vehicle Classifieds
    This wheel has almost exactly the correct rolling radius to replace the o/e alloys. If you were silly enough to buy the optional spacesaver wheel recommended by VW, you'd find its rolling radius to be more than 10% different ! And the VW price would have been a lot more than the £60 I...
  6. Volkswagen Dealers - a sad tale...

    General EV Discussion
    A short tale of my experience in trying to buy a new VW e-up. Over the last few months here are some of the comments I’ve had from visiting 5 VW dealers to discuss an E-up. - There is a 1 year waiting list - There is a 3 month waiting list - The charging cable is Chademo (when it isn’t) - We’re...
  7. Rapid AC Charge

    Volkswagen e-UP!
    Hi everyone, I'm about to buy an E-up and am currently researching the charging options. Apart from the CCS rapid charging option, is it possible to charge the E-up using the AC rapid charger? (I have 3 AC rapid chargers within 30 miles but no CCS facility). I've read on an old website the e-up...
  8. Car is charged even when asking for a delay

    General Charging Discussion
    I'm really not sure whether I have a fault with my car (VW e-Up!) or my charger (Rolec Wallpod). I've had the car since Oct 1st and the wall charger was fitted a couple of weeks later. Car always charges OK when connected to wallpod without setting any delay and usually OK when I use the 'Maps...
  9. DRLs

    Volkswagen e-UP!
    As I'm sure we all know, the e-Up! has white LEDs in a sort of semicircle around each end of the front bumper. But mine doesn't seem to have any rear lights showing when the front DRLs are illuminated. There is a very similar pair of red 'things' around each end of the rear bumpers but they...
  10. e-Up! Spare Wheel

    Volkswagen e-UP!
    Most ICE Ups seem to have 14" rims; e-Up! has 15" alloys. Very few are offered with a spare wheel - just a bottle of 'goo' or at best a 'space saver' [sic]. The 'goo' would be a disaster ! A simple puncture that you could get repaired for £10 would, if filled with ‘goo’ become completely...
