In Germany, Volkswagen decreased the price of the e-up from 26.900 to 22.975 euros (before environmental bonus).
However, even with a 3.925 euros price cut, this great electric city car is still extremely overpriced, considering that the gas version in Germany starts at 10.625 euros, which is less than half.
The good news is that the upcoming Volkswagen e-up 2.0, Seat e-Mii and Skoda e-Citigo are expected to arrive next year with a WLTP range of 270 km and a starting price of 19.000 euros.
Anyway, it looks like the VW Group will soon dominate the electric car A-segment without much effort, unless Renault finally releases the long-awaited Renault Twingo ZE. The automaker who dominates the A-segment of electric cars will also dominate the car-sharing business in Europe, which can be very profitable.
