Volkswagen e-Caddy (2019–)
Volkswagen launches e-Caddy.
The electric van is built in partnership with ABT Sportline and is available as a panel van or five-seater MPV.
A 82-kW electric motor operates in the e-Caddy. The electric motor is supplied with electricity from a lithium-ion battery. Energy capacity: 37.3kWh. The e-Caddy, which has a top speed of 120 km/h, will be one of the most spacious electric vehicles in its class with a cargo compartment volume of 4.2 cubic metres.
Power is transmitted via an automatic single-speed gearbox. A fully discharged battery can be charged to 100 per cent in less than six hours at a charging power of up to 7.2 kW (e.g. at wallboxes). Using the quick charge method at 40 kW, the battery can be charged to 80 per cent capacity in just 49 minutes.
The e-Caddy can be configured as a commercial vehicle in the form of the panel van (no windows at rear) and kombi (with rear windows) – or as a passenger carrying vehicle.
