As we enter a new year there are some fantastic changes to the Vauxhall Corsa-E that we want to share with you. With cosmetic and mechanical tweaks to share, Vauxhall are ensuring that the Corsa is still a competitive vehicle in the hatchback market against the Ford Fiesta, Renault Clio and Volkswagen Polo.
While there are changes across the range there is one noticeable change to the Vauxhall Corsa-E and that is the introduction of a new trim level. So let’s get right to it.
Specifications of the Vauxhall Corsa-E
The Vauxhall Corsa-E is the fully electric option of the popular Corsa range. Choosing to drive an electric car could save you money each time you drive it. Compared to a traditional petrol or diesel comparison electric vehicles are cheaper to run and much more efficient to divre. The Corsa-E comes with a Mode 3 charging cable as standard, which is designed to work with a wallbox or a public charging port. This makes it much easier to drive an electric vehicle for your day to day life and commuting.
There are now three trim levels to choose from. These include
- SE Nav Premium
- SRI Nav Premium
- Elite Nav Premium
SRI Nav premium trim level update
The updated SRI Nav premium trim level now comes with Vauxhalls Light pack as standard. This includes automatic headlights, LED fog lamps and LED tail lights. Customers who have an eye for style will also please with the updated two-tone 17 inch alloy wheels that have been added to the vehicle.
Engine and other important information about the Vauxhall Corsa-e
The Vauxhall Corsa-e has a 50kwh battery pack and 134bhp motor which is mounted on the front axle. This can provide speeds from 0-60mph in 7.6 seconds and can give you a range of 209 miles. The powertrain has a choice of three driving styles. You can have sport mode, normal and eco mode. Vaulhall has recorded the range of 209 miles in normal mode. Sport mode will unlock the powerful elements of the engine, and give you a sportier ride, however, as a trade off you will lose approximately 10% off the range due to the extra power used for sport mode. However, if you are looking to maximise the range and time between charges, then the eco mode is the one to consider. However, the corsa-e switches off some of the creature comfort elements within the vehicle in order to give you that range. It could increase the range by 40% in comparison to sport mode.
All Vauxhall Corsa-e models can support 100kw DC rapid charging which will top up the vehicle's battery pack by up to 80% in a thirty minute charge. Upon choosing your Corsa-e model, you can also decide between the 7.4kw and 11kw on-board charger, which when connected to a 22kwh public charging pint can give you a full charge from 3-5 hours.
Overall Vauxhall’s main aim is to ensure that customers making the switch to electric will find it an easy transition to make.
