The Vauxhall Corsa-e is available now with an all-electric range of 209 miles, along with a 0-60mph time of 7.6 seconds, and is priced from £27,665 after the Plug-in Car Grant.
There is a growing consumer appetite for EVs according to figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) which show that fully electric vehicles are the only vehicle segment growing in the UK.
As Covid-19 lockdown restrictions begin to ease, electric vehicle registrations rose by 21.5% in May 2020 compared to the previous year, and now account for 4.3% of the UK new car market.
The Vauxhall Corsa-e has a 50kWh battery which provides a zero-emissions range of up to 209 miles from a single charge and supports up to 100kW rapid charging technology – allowing for an 80 per cent charge in as little as 30 minutes.
The new Corsa-e comes with a free home charging wall box, and a six-month subscription to the Polar public charging network, the UK’s largest public charging network with more than 7,000 charging points nationwide.
Through the MyVauxhall app, Corsa-e owners can check the charge status of their vehicle via their smartphone, pre-select charging times for their vehicle and turn on the heating or air conditioning remotely, to warm or cool the cabin ahead of a trip.
The Corsa-e has an eight-year/100,000-mile battery warranty matched by eight years of Roadside Assistance cover.
