Your range on the road

Work, school, supermarket. Most of us drive short distances in the UK. In fact, most car journeys each day are less than 15 miles. So electric vehicles are a perfect option for lots of people. The new Corsa-e gives you an impressive 205 miles (WLTP)  range without recharging in the normal driving mode. Drive in Eco mode and you can go up to 40% further. The new sporty Grandland X Hybrid4 travels up to 35 miles  in pure electric mode.

Charging choice

There are three ways to charge.

  1. Use a normal household socket
  2. Use a wallbox - the simplest and quickest way to charge at home
  3. Plug-in to one of almost 20,000 chargepoint connectors at 7,000 locations around the UK.

Charge at home

There are two ways to charge your vehicle at home. You can either plug-in to a normal household socket or you can use a wallbox. This special unit is the quickest and simplest way to charge at home. Just plug-in, switch on and er…that’s it. 

Wallboxes are weatherproof and have overload protection circuitry built-in. So they’re completely safe. They also switch off when your car is fully charged. If you use an approved installer and have off-street parking, you could get a Government grant of up to £500 towards installation costs. And the installation company will do all the paperwork for you. No worries.

Driving experience

The electric feeling

So smooth. So quiet. So much fun to drive. Feel the surge of acceleration from the instant torque. Another good feeling is zero emissions of the all-electric Corsa-e and its range of 205 miles in normal driving mode. And electric means low running costs, too.

Charging made easy

Powering up

Charge at home using a normal household socket. Or use a special wallbox (you could get a Government grant of up to £500 towards installation).

Charge on the go at one of almost 20,000 UK chargepoint connectors.  Some will be rapid chargepoints, which will boost your vehicle up to 80% in around 30 minutes. And wherever you power up, you might be surprised how much you save.

Help for electric workspaces

The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) offers help to eligible businesses, charities and public sector organisations. They could receive up to £500 per socket towards the cost of installing electric charge points. To qualify, there must be dedicated off-street parking for staff.

Service plans

Pay less tax

Choose a low-emission vehicle and you’ll save on tax. All 100% electric cars (costing under £40,000) pay £0 car tax, while plug-in hybrids get a £10 discount. Zero emission vehicles, and all cars registered before 1st April 2017 that emit less than 100g CO2/km, also pay no car tax. There are other tax savings, too.

Recharge a plug-in vehicle at home and you’ll only pay 5% VAT on your electricity. Compare that to 20% on road fuels. And company car drivers also get a break. The ‘Benefit in Kind’ (BiK) rate for electric vehicles emitting 50g/km of CO2 or less is just 16% for 2019/20.

Service plans

Lower local charges

Low or zero emission electric vehicles pay less in Clean Air Zones in the UK and the Ultra Low Emission Zone in London.

Many local councils also offer electric drivers free parking, reduced Residents’ Parking permits, access to bus lanes and even free electricity. Check with your local council to find out more.

Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Drive Motor Retail Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Vauxhall Finance. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Vauxhall Finance, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to be make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Vauxhall Finance also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
