The only car I have ever had that total strangers walk up to and say "That's a nice looking car"

Cannot fault it. Does what it says in the literature. After nearly 10,000 miles of mixed use my "lifetime average" fuel consumption is 157mpg.

Beautifully quiet and smooth. Terrific acceleration when you need it.

Battery range varies according to the time of year because you use the heater and lghts much more in the winter. I am getting a range 28 to 30 miles in winter and 45 to 50 miles in summer per charge.

When running on the petrol engine only, fuel consumption is around 45mpg. I think that this is acceptable for a car weighing 1.7 tonnes

Not a car for anyone who does high mileages but if you average daily drive is 30 miles or less it is perfect. And at 8000 miles a year, the Vauxhall warranty should cover the car for over 12 years.
