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.
There are three ways to charge.
- Use a normal household socket
- Use a wallbox - the simplest and quickest way to charge at home
- 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.
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
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.
