VAUXHALL has released first images of the all-new Corsa-e, one of the most hotly-anticipated new cars to go on sale in 2019.
As part of the brand’s PACE! strategic plan, Vauxhall’s Corsa-e and Grandland X PHEV will lead Vauxhall’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 sold in the UK since it launched in 1993.
The Corsa-e has 205 mile range that can be extended by up to 40% in Eco mode. The battery can be charged to 80% capacity in 30 minutes at a rapid-charge station.
With 136hp and 260Nm of torque from the electric propulsion system, the Corsa-e sprints from 0-31mph in just 3.1 seconds and reaches 62mph in 8.1 seconds.
Advanced technologies, driver assistance systems and connectivity includes numerous camera and radar-based assistance systems.
The new infotainment systems up to and including the Multimedia Navi Pro are available with a 10-inch colour touchscreen and compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Suitable smartphones can be charged wirelessly.
