Volkswagen e-up!
It's not brand-new, but the e-up! may be the most relevant EV on the market today.
When the electric version of the Volkswagen up! city car was first unveiled back in 2012, it was deemed too expensive for the Irish market against the petrol-powered versions. Bear in mind that demand for electric cars wasn't as high as it is now. The up! quietly disappeared from Irish pricelists a while ago, but in 2023 Volkswagen Ireland decided that there is now a place in the market for the e-up! as demand for EVs rocket and it can be sold for a price that makes it look good value against the majority of alternatives.
