The Vauxhall Corsa-e – fully electric!
As part of the PACE! strategic plan, Vauxhall’s Corsa-e and Grandland X PHEV will lead the British brand’s electric charge this year. Two more all-electric models will follow in 2020, including the successor to the Mokka X SUV and Vivaro van. All models are vital to Vauxhall’s ongoing reduction of CO2.
By 2024, Vauxhall will have an electrified version of every model in its range. A key role is played by the shared multi-energy platforms. They make it possible to offer various propulsion systems on a common platform.
Corsa has been Vauxhall’s best-selling car for many years, with over 2.1 million Corsas sold in the UK since it launched in 1993. The British buying public are familiar with its name and looks, and have a fondness for its compact dimensions and interior packaging. Corsa is just as popular in Europe with over 13.5 million sold.
Some quick facts/figures on performance:
- 205 mile WLTP range extendable by 40% in Eco mode
- Corsa-e can be charged to 80% capacity in 30 minutes at rapid-charge station
- 136hp and 260Nm electric propulsion system with 50kWh battery
- Corsa-e achieves 0-31mph in just 2.8 seconds
We believe that small electric vehicles certainly have their part to play and it seems like a great move by Vauxhall to reduce global CO2 emissions.
