2018 Volkswagen E-up! (White)

Modifications

Drivetrain
82 Hp electric motor (max 210 NM torque available at all revs), 374 Volt traction battery, electronic speed controller and on-board charge controller Simple reduction gearbox/diff (Setup mimics standard automatic but is all done by switching motor to run either way or no current when at N or Park.
Interior
'Hope & goo' puncture system replaced with a proper spacesaver spare wheel, and I routed a dashcam cable under the trim down to the centre console power point - otherwise standard.
Exterior
Just one - a set of small mudflaps (needed altering because the sill on an up is covered in a plastic bit compared to the Skoda version). Anyway it stops the muck from front wheels getting in under the doors. They only stick out & down about an inch but make all the difference.
Audio
Standard fit is DAB/FM player with SD card, Aux and Phone/USB inputs + bluetooth
Suspension
Standard (which I think is heavy duty)
Wheel and Tire
Special 16 " Low drag alloys. Tyres Goodyear Efficient Grip compact 165/65R15 81T
