Vauxhall Corsa-e now on sale
An all-electric version of the highly popular Vauxhall Corsa supermini is now on sale in the UK for £30,665 (or £27,665, with the government’s plug-in car grant for electric vehicles).
The zero-emissions Corsa-e has a 50kWh battery pack which has a potential 209-mile range from a single charge, with an 80 per cent charge possible in 30 minutes when using a 100kW rapid charger. The battery has an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty, while owners are also entitled to eight years of roadside assistance.
Performance-wise, figures suggest that the 0-60mph speed test is possible in 7.6 seconds.
Buyers of the new Corsa-e receive a free home charging wall box and a six-month subscription to the Polar public charging network, which has more than 7,000 charging points across the UK.
Corsa-e owners can use their smartphones to check the charge status of their vehicle, pre-select charging times for their vehicle and even turn on the air conditioning remotely, all via a ‘MyVauxhall’ app.
Interested potential customers can place an order at Vauxhall showroom or online at Vauxhall’s new Virtual Showroom, https://www.vauxhall.co.uk/virtual-showroom.html.
