Volkswagen has announced the next VW e-up electric city car will get a more advanced battery that’ll allow up to 260km of range and an 80% recharge in just 60 minutes (via a 40kW charger).

Updated VW e-up on the way

With the claim that it is “making electric mobility affordable for everyone”, it’ll unveil the new e-Up alongside its all-new ID.3 at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.

Battery capacity has risen from 18.7 kWh to 32.3 kWh, resulting in up to 160 miles of travel between charges – a significant rise over the current car’s 99-mile range.

Aiming its updated e-up at city dwellers and commuters, exact UK price and specs are to be confirmed, but in Germany the e-up will be available to lease from only €159 per month (excluding extra charges).
