Audi Plotting Introduction of VW e-Up!-Based Premium EV by 2015

Audi has been testing the waters with various electric vehicles over the years, and they’ve surely gathered considerable experience in the process. Now, they are reportedly transferring their knowledge into a VW e-Up!-based all-electric vehicle, which is set to arrive in 2015.

The information comes courtesy of Automobil-produktion, which says their own source is German car magazine Auto Bild. They explain that the car will feature different styling, a much-improved interior, reflecting its premium status, and a high-spec infotainment system.

Also, its battery pack of unspecified capacity will reportedly be capable of taking it 200 km (125 miles) on a single charge, more than the e-Up!, which can only manage 150 km (93 miles) – it uses an 18.7 kWh pack.

Performance will also be better than that of the e-Up!, as the Audi is reportedly getting 116 PS (114 hp) and 270 Nm of torque, or 199 lb-ft. The information goes even further and tells us the car will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 9.3 seconds and have a top speed of 150 km/h – their sources seem to be very detailed…
