  • Corsa-e and Grandland X PHEV lead Vauxhall’s electric charge this year
  • Successor to Mokka X  and new Vivaro in 2020, will have electric power
  • Vauxhall will have an electrified version of every model in its range by 2024

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. Keep an eye out at Brindley Vauxhall for this futuristic ride coming to showrooms later this year.

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.

PROPULSION

  • 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

The Corsa-e has 205 mile range that can be extended by up to 40 per cent in Eco mode. The battery can be charged to 80 per cent 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 2.8 seconds. The Corsa-e reaches 62mph in just 8.1 seconds. Corsa-e drivers can choose from three drive modes: Normal, Eco and Sport.

CHARGING

  • 11kW on-board charger included as standard
  • Works with home charger and rapid charger

The Corsa-e is as easy to charge as it is to drive. It charges via a cable that can connect to a wallbox or fast charger (and the battery is guaranteed for eight years). The Corsa-e is equipped as standard with an 11kW on-board charger.

DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS AND INFOTAINMENT

  • Pioneering assistance systems from higher vehicle classes increase safety
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto infotainment with 10-inch touchscreen available

Numerous advanced driver assistance systems, which enable safer, more relaxed driving, are based on camera and optional radar technology. The Corsa-e also offers two emergency braking systems.

Drowsiness Detection warns the driver, via audio and visual signals at three levels, to take a break after two hours of driving at speeds higher than 40mph. The system can alert the driver to the need for a break at any time if it detects that the car is behaving dangerously, e.g. swerving.

The Corsa-e helps the driver into and out of parking spaces by various means:

  • Parking pilots for the rear, and front plus rear.
  • Panorama Rear View Camera: additional parking assistance; increases rearward visibility by up to 180 per cent, enabling drivers to see traffic approaching from the right or left.
