The Corsa goes electric
Known as the Corsa-e, the fully-electric car is the flag-bearer for a completely new Corsa range, based on Opel's advanced, CMP Multi-Energy Platform. With 136PS from its 50kWh battery and acceleration from 0-100kmph in just 8.1 seconds, the Corsa-e’s punchy performance will appeal to a broad range of drivers who may not have previously considered an electric car.
And with a generous range, using the new, more stringent WLTP test, of 330 km, the Corsa-e will aim to normalise electric car ownership, as you’d expect from a car wearing such a familiar badge. That range is easily accessible, too: using a public fast-charger, the Corsa-e can be charged to 80% of its capacity in just 30 minutes.
The Corsa-e will be available in two highly-specified trims, both of which will come as standard with a 7-inch touchscreen, 11kWh on-board charger, satellite navigation, LED headlights, alloy wheels, rear parking sensors and DAB radio. Also standard will be the peace of mind that comes with the Corsa-e’s battery warranty, which guarantees that at least 70% of its capacity is maintained for 160 000km, or eight years.
Full specifications and range pricing will be available when Corsa-e receives its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, ahead of series production starting in January next year.
