Volkswagen e-Golf, e-Up! Coming at Frankfurt 2013
The production-ready e-Golf will be featured with an 85 kW (115 PS) electric motor that delivers a maximum drive torque of 270 Nm. This enables the vehicle to reach 100 km/h from a standing start in 10.4 seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 140 km/h. The company says that the e-Golf will have a range of 190 km thanks to a 24.2 kWh battery.
Moving on to the smaller e-Up, the city car that provides seating is motivated by a 60 kW (82 PS) and 210 Nm electric motor. This translates into a 0 to 100 km/h sprint of 12.4 seconds and a top speed of 130 km/h. Fitted with a 18.7 battery, the Volkswagen e-Up! is good for 160 km on a single charge.
Standard features on both models include automatic climate control with parking heater and ventilation, radio-navigation system, windscreen heating, and LED daytime running lights, while the e-Golf also gains the company’s first full LED headlights.
