Volkswagen e-up gets a price cut

Volkswagen e-up in white

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.

  1. “Anyway, it looks like the VW Group will soon dominate the electric car A-segment without much effort…”

    The joke of the year…as if VW would ever keep up with their promises…

  2. It is unfair to compare the price of an e-Up! with the base price of a fossil Up!. You should compare between e-Up! and the e-Up! High, as the e-Up! only comes in the High version. Then the price diff is not very big.

  3. Has anyone else in any other country seen a price drop on the Volkswagen e-up? Here in Denmark the price hasn’t been dropped yet.

    1. In Portugal it still costs an impressive 28,117 euro.

      1. I just checked again, now the price has dropped from 195 990 DKK (26 132 Euro) to 179 995 DKK (24 000 Euro) , so only a price drop of about 2000 Euro.
