It’s curious that Volkswagen have not made a worldwide press release yet, since this automaker is the champion of announcing electric cars for the future. Instead, the new Volkswagen e-up was announced at the Volkswagen Nederland website.
Anyway, the long-awaited electric city car trio is now complete.
The main feature of these cars is their range. With enough range, these cars are much better for city driving than any other ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) alternative. Volkswagen already said that 500 e-up cars will be used in its car sharing service WeShare in Berlin.
In comparison to its twins, I prefer the more aerodynamic wheel trims of the e-up, but dislike all that black glass at the rear. It not only makes the car more prone to damage (just like the BMW i3), it also makes the car less visible from behind.
I think that the ŠKODA CITIGOe iV with its lower price has what it takes to be the most successful of the trio.
What do you think? Which one do you prefer?
