I watched this video yesterday evening.
Come on, it's no e.Golf to be fair @Tooks .I’d happily drive an e-up instead of my e-Golf, especially as usually it’s only me in it!
I regularly drive the Golf 170 miles at a time now (well, before the obvious) with just 1 charging stop, and the e-up could do the same.
Nice little car for the money, and would fit nicely into most drivers use patterns.
Hi @Tooks .Yes, it does seem pricey
Everything is pricey compared to your MG ZS EV though Carty!Hi @Tooks .
It does not “Seem” pricey - it is pricey !.
The cheaper ICE version of the Up! had to to be sold at a price to compete against other rivals in that section.
Putting in a HV battery, motor etc can’t justify that massive increase in the price surely !.
Yeah - It does everything the e.Golf will do, gets you from A to B.
But it’s still an expensive “Shopping / School Run” car in my eye’s though.
What is the peak CCS speed on the e-Up then?It's not. The E Up has a lower voltage battery. It also throttles at 50% rather than closer to 80% in the Golf.
Which I think is the conclusion we’ve arrived at, the e-up clearly doesn’t hit 40 kW for very long given those averages.
