The new Volkswagen e-load Up concept has been shown at the Frankfurt motor show.

The concept is based on the conventional VW e-Up supermini, but offers commercial vehicle drivers a much smaller, more agile alternative to their current vans. With 1400 litres of storage space, plastic body cladding, blocked-out rear windows and a folding passenger seat, VW hopes to appeal to pizza delivery drivers, service technicians and couriers.

Power is provided via an 81bhp electric motor which gives the e-load Up a top speed of 80mph and a range of 99 miles on a single charge. 

Volkswagen has not stated whether or not the concept will make production, but hinted that if customer demand was high enough it might consider a limited run.
