Volkswagen has revealed a new pure-electric version of its Up city car, ahead of a public debut at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

Dubbed e-up, the new EV is the German giant’s first pure-electric production car, previewed at Volkswagen’s annual Press and Investors Conference in Germany this week.

The e-up’s power is delivered via a single electric motor, rated at a maximum of 60kW/210Nm, with 40kW available continuously.

This enables the 1185kg e-Up (up 256kg) to accelerate from 0-100km/h in 14 seconds, and reach a top speed of 135km/h.

A maximum driving range of 150km is quoted for the e-up’s 18.7kWh lithium-ion battery system. A quick-charge function enables the batteries to reach 80 percent charge within 30 minutes.

The e-up is subtly distinguished from current versions by LED daytime running lights tracing the front bumper detail, and matching foglights in the rear bumper.

Aerodynamic tweaks include a revised front bumper design, side-skirts, and underfloor fairings.

Unique 15-inch alloys also feature, which emulate the design of the e-up concept shown at Frankfurt in 2009.

After its public debut at Frankfurt in September, the e-up is set to arrive in European showrooms in early 2014.

The pure-electric drivetrain will join the existing 1.0 litre petrol model and CNG-fuelled Up Eco sold internationally, and is expected to be joined by a plug-in hybrid variant using the diesel-electric XL1’s drivetrain within the next two years.
