Audi is allegedly working on an EV version of the Volkswagen up! which will be out in 2015.

The new model will adopt different exterior styling and a more upscale interior cabin which will feature a better infotainment system. The battery will provide enough juice for up to 125 miles (200 km) before recharging, more than the up! which can only do 93 miles (150 km) with its 18.7 kWh battery pack.

Audi's up! will also be more powerful than VW's version as it is expected to provide 114 bhp (85 kW) and 199 lb-ft (270 Nm) from its electric motor which should be enough for a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in a decent 9.3 seconds before reaching a top speed of 93 mph (150 km/h).
