Vauxhall Corsa-e

 

Summary


The Vauxhall Corsa supermini, with a petrol engine, has consistently been one of the best-selling cars in the UK for years. Now you can buy an electric Corsa. Underneath, it’s the same car as the Peugeot e-208 (and the DS 3 Crossback e-tense) but the design – inside and out – has a more simple approach than the e-208.

Underneath the car sits a 50 kWh lithium-ion battery, and there’s a 100 kW electric motor under the bonnet. In typical Corsa tradition, the car is front-wheel drive. The Corsa-e has an electric range of 222 miles (WLTP).

There are three drive modes: Eco, Normal and Sport, and you can increase the level of brake regeneration by choosing ‘B’ rather than ‘D’ using the gear selector.

The infomedia system has shortcut buttons underneath the touchscreen and there are also separate heating controls under the screen.

Using a 7 kW home charger, a 0-100% charge should take 7 hours 30 minutes. A public 100 kW rapid charger should give a 15 – 80% charge in 30 minutes. The Corsa-e is available with a 7.4 kW onboard charger or an 11 kW onboard charger.

GS Line trim features a 7-inch colour touchscreen with Satellite Navigation & Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, Ultimate trim features a 10-inch colour touchscreen.
