The e-Golf is powered by an electric motor which produces 113bhp and 199lb ft of torque. Volkswagen says the car can achieve a top speed of 87mph and accelerate from 0-62mph in 10.4 seconds. The car has a range of 118 miles.
The e-Up, which has already been revealed prior to the show, has a range of up to 93 miles and can be charged up to 80 per cent in 30 minutes. The e-Up weighs a relatively low 1185kg. By comparison, the larger Nissan Leaf clocks in at 1500kg.
Power for the e-Up comes from an 80bhp electric motor which also produces 155lb ft of torque. Volkswagen claims the car can achieve a top speed of 84mph and that the 0-62mph sprint is dealt with in 12.4 seconds. As with the e-Golf, the e-Up has selectable driving modes including Eco and Eco+ to enable more frugal motoring when required.
Volkswagen has not yet released prices for the e-Up or e-Golf, though orders are expected to open before the end of the year.
Both cars come with climate control and integrated sat-nav as standard.
