New Vauxhall Corsa-e to make public debut in September
16th Aug 2019 Danny Morgan
Vauxhall will debut three new models at the 2019 IAA Frankfurt International Motor Show, including the new fully electric Corsa.
Known as the Corsa-e, the fully-electric car is the flagship model in the new Corsa range, as part of a significant revamp of the popular hatchback’s exterior, interior and in-car entertainment.
The new Corsa-e, Vauxhall’s first all-electric car, contains a 50kWh battery, which will take it from 0-62mph in 8.1 seconds as well as offering a WLTP range of 205 miles.
The new EV will be capable of fast charging, going from 0-80 per cent capacity in 30 minutes using. The Corsa-e uses CCS for fast charging, while for home-charging the vehicle includes the widely adopted Type 2 socket – using a 7.4kWh, the Corsa-e will be fully charged in just under eight hours.
The EV starts at £26,490 including Government Plug-In Car Grant, putting the Corsa-e in a similar price range to the new Peugeot e-208 although it’s pricier than the evergreen Renault ZOE.
Deliveries are expected to take place at the start of 2020.
