The latest entry into the ever-growing world of electric cars is VW's e-Up! Boasting a no frills approach to petrol-free motoring, it takes a stripped-back approach to the automotive tech that we rather like.

So how does the Up! fair against its other slightly more expensive rivals? Is it all an electric car needs to be? Or does the technical wizardry of the pricier BMW i3 justify the cost?

To my mind, it's one charge port that can be used by 2 different charging cables - type 2 or CCS.

It means Type 2 (top) or CCS (bottom) NOT two separate charging locations on the car.
Not quite. Type 2 (Mennekes) does indeed fit in the top section but a CCS plug uses all those pins plus the extra two.
