Vauxhall Corsa-e (2020): At A Glance
Electric version of the Vauxhall Corsa, closely related to the Peugeot e-208.
With 136PS and 260Nm of torque, the electric Corsa covers 0-31mph in 2.8 seconds and 0-62mph in 8.1 seconds. There are three driving modes available: normal, eco and sport.
A full charge provides enough range for 205 miles when left in normal mode, while selecting eco mode increases this to 40 per cent. The Corsa-e is equipped as standard with an 11kW on-board charger, while a rapid-charge station can charge the battery to 80 per cent in 30 minutes.
The Corsa-e features a regenerative braking system to recover energy produced under braking or deceleration. This converts kinetic energy into electrical energy which can be used immediately or stored in the battery. Drivers can select between two levels of regenerative braking.
The Corsa-e will be available in two trim levels, with a £26,490 start price after the Government's £3500 plug-in car grant. Both models feature a seven-inch touchscreen display with navigation, an 11kWh on-board charger, alloy wheels and rear parking sensors.
Full details and specifications will be announced following the Corsa-e's official reveal at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, ahead of production starting in January 2020.
