German automaker has revealed initial pricing information for its all-electric e-Up! model, which is set to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this year.
Volkswagen’s first fully electric mass production car will have a starting price of €26,900 in Germany ($34,496/£23188 at current exchange rates), which will make it about €3,000 more expensive than a Nissan Leaf with a leased battery. Some might consider the sticker pretty hefty considering the size of the vehicle.

Whatever the case, customers that will buy the VW-badged EV will have 82 HP (60 kW) and 210 Nm (155 lb-ft) at their disposal. The power will allow the small vehicle to reach a top speed of 130 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 12.4 seconds. According to Volkswagen, the e-Up! will cost each owner less than €3 ($3.85/£2.59) for every 100 kilometers (62 miles) they travel in it.

More details about the German all-electric car will be revealed at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
