  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

And so <a /volkswagen/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/volkswagen/">Volkswagen</a> has unveiled the e-Load Up!<br /><br />Based on the existing <a /tag/vw+up/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/vw+up/">Up!</a> five-door, the e-Load Up! stands out not only for its panel-van cargo conversion, but also for its electric powertrain borrowed from the passenger-spec <a /2013/09/10/vw-e-up-and-e-golf-revealed-frankfurt/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/09/10/vw-e-up-and-e-golf-revealed-frankfurt/">e-Up!</a> also released here in <a /frankfurt-auto-show/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/frankfurt-auto-show/">Frankfurt</a>. The electric motor produces 81 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque, juiced by an 18.7 kWh lithium-ion battery under the floor to run from 0-62 miles per hour in a positively pedestrian 12.4 seconds and on to a top speed of 81 mph, traveling up to 99 miles on a single charge.<br /><br />What sets the e-Load Up! apart from the passenger version, however, is its cargo capacity. Whereas the passenger Up! can take up to 951 liters (33.6 cubic feet), this version can swallow up to 1,400 liters (49 cu ft) and 306 kilograms (675 pounds) of stuff - enhanced by the fold-up passenger seat next to the driver's. Volkswagen, for whatever reason, chose not to display the car during press days here at the show, but you can check out the few images we did scrounge up, in the gallery above, along with the press release <a href="/2013/09/11/vw-e-load-up-frankfurt-2013/#continued">below</a>.<p><a /2013/09/11/vw-e-load-up-frankfurt-2013/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/09/11/vw-e-load-up-frankfurt-2013/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>VW unveils e-Load Up! to electrify the commercial crowd</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a /2013/09/11/vw-e-load-up-frankfurt-2013/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/09/11/vw-e-load-up-frankfurt-2013/">VW unveils e-Load Up! to electrify the commercial crowd</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Wed, 11 Sep 2013 13:20:00 EST.
