Automotive News Europe reports that the small electric will return; to be orderable on the German market after orders were blocked in 2020. The country's incentives, in fact, had led to a sharp increase in demand for the car. However, this model was not meant to be made in large volumes. The delivery times had therefore lengthened a lot and for the German brand the car was not particularly profitable. Indeed, in the past there was talk that this car, like the e-Golf, was produced at a loss by the manufacturer.

However, the good success of models like the Dacia Spring and the strong demand for the e-up! , they would have made it clear to the German brand that the market is looking with interest at small electric. So, in Germany the little e-up! will continue to be produced and will return; to be ordered even if with a slightly revised range. This is a very important signal for the future of this battery-powered car that continues to please.

The Volkswagen e-up !, remember, has a 61 kW (83 hp) electric motor. The autonomy with a full tank of energy reaches up to 257 km according to the WLTP cycle. In Italy, prices start at € 25,850 .
