The new Vauxhall Corsa may be a small hatchback, but it represents a giant leap into the mainstream for electric cars. That’s because this model that sells in huge numbers will for the first time be offered with battery power as well as petrol and diesel engines.
Indeed, Vauxhall sees the electric variant as so important to the Corsa’s future that it has chosen to reveal it ahead of the combustion-engined models.
Called the Corsa-e, it uses a 134bhp motor and a 50kWh lithium ion battery that’s good for a range of 211 miles between charges on the official WLTP test cycle. That matches the figure of its sister car, the Peugeot e-208 (due to go on sale around the same time), and compares favourably with today’s Renault Zoe, which manages just 188 miles.
In addition, Vauxhall claims that the range of the Corsa-e can be extended by as much as 40% when it’s driven in its Eco mode, which restricts performance and increases the amount of energy that the regenerative braking system harvests to put back into the battery when you lift off the accelerator pedal.
A full charge of the Corsa-e from a domestic three-pin socket takes more than 20 hours, but this drops to eight hours if you use a dedicated 7.4kW home wallbox. Alternatively, the battery can be returned to 80% capacity in just half an hour via a 100kW rapid charger of the sort you will find at most motorway service stations.
Most performance figures are still to be shared, but a claimed 0-31mph time of 3.1sec suggests the car will be pretty nippy in town.
While pricing is still to be confirmed, we know the Corsa-e will be positioned towards the top of the Corsa line-up. So, it comes with a lot of standard kit, including a configurable digital instrument display alongside a 10.0in infotainment touchscreen with Apple Carplay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring.
A wide range of driver assistance systems will also be available, including adaptive cruise control, blindspot monitoring and an automatic emergency braking system that can detect cyclists and pedestrians .
Vauxhall says the e-Corsa will swiftly be followed by more electrified cars, including next year’s new Mokka X small SUV, and that by 2024 it will have an electric or plug-in hybrid version of every model in its range.
