Vauxhall Corsa-e (2020–)
Deposits being taken for electric Vauxhall Corsa-e
Vauxhall has announced its electric Corsa will start at £26,490 - with deposits now being taken ahead of deliveries from early 2020.
The new Vauxhall Corsa will be closely related to the Peugeot 208 when it makes its public debut later in 2019. And, like the 208, it'll be available as an electric-only model with a 50kWh battery and 136PS electric motor.
With a 205-mile range, Vauxhall says the Corsa-e "aims to normalise electric car ownership". Using a public fast-charger, the manufacturer claims the electric Corsa can be charged to 80 per cent of its capacity in around 30 minutes.
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.
Deposits of £500 are now being taken, with the first 500 customers to place a reservation to receive a free home-charging kit when they take delivery.
Vauxhall is quoting a finance figure of £270 a month based on a 47-month PCP deal, following a customer deposit of £5,549.40. That's for an SE model with Orange Fizz paint (£650), and there's an optional final payment of £9,123.
Two models available: Corsa-e SE Nav and Corsa-e Elite Nav. Both equipped with climate control a/c, infotainment system with DAB radio, sat nav, voice control, Bluetooth for hands-free phone calls/music streaming and smartphone integration with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The SE Nav has a 7-inch touchscreen whilst the Elite Nav model has Navi Pro infotainment system with a 10-inch screen. Driver aids and tech include cruise control with speed limiter, front camera system with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning/lane assist, automatic emergency braking and rear parking sensor. The SE Nav has speed sign recognition whilst the Elite Nav has a much wider traffic sign recognition system. The Elite Nav also adds some other extra tech like rear-view camera, front parking sensor, heated front seats/heated steering wheel and keyless entry.
Corsa-e SE Nav discounted to £27,487 (-£3,500 grant = £23,987) at UK Car Discount
Production starts in January 2020.
