Stop, before you want to buy this new technology package, we regret to have to inform you that it is a concept car. VW is, as almost always, quite late, but nevertheless not hastily. One first wants to wait for the success of the E-up!. Even otherwise, the strategy seems to be working. One has matched all expansion steps on each other. It almost seems as if one could build all variants in almost every factory. In the uncertain business by selling electric cars, one says to oneself: Let decide the customer.

The shown here Twin-up! benefits from the XL1. If it goes in production for a reasonable price, it brings its technology in a nearly four-seat sedan. It is about the practically halved 1.6 four-cylinder, but equipped contrary to this with balance shaft. In principle, the TDI is combined as a transverse engine with a dual clutch transmission, would not be there an electric motor with an additional decoupler instead of the flywheel. Of course, this unit costs installation space, but in the face of only 2 cylinders is enough of it left.

So the purchase price still remains in acceptable regions, the Twin-up! has less than half the capacity of the battery of the E-up!. Presumably, the Twin-up! will still significantly more expensive than the E-up!. Because that's sophisticated technology with CR diesel engine, oxidation catalytic, particulate filter and dual clutch transmission. Incredible 1.1 litres/100 km it's supposed to consume, respectively 27 g/km CO2 emit. For the first hundred kilometers with charged battery that may apply because 50 kilometers of this are to be possible purely electrically.

It might be an exciting driving experience when the TDI while underway is switched off and sometime eventually restarted. Definitely interesting to see how an electric motor is brought up to speed by downshifting the seven-speed and then turns on the diesel allegedly smoothly. Also exciting might be how cleverly the electric motor conceals the diesel turbo lag by its enormous torque.Presumably, the interplay of two engines and clutches is so complex that it can be fine tuned even later by an update.

As the manufacturers say so beautiful: The driving pleasure does not have to suffer by the need to economise. Hopefully this also applies to the wallet when buying. 02/14
