Vauxhall has announced pricing for its Corsa-e, the company’s first pure-electric model. Prices will start from £26,490, including the £3,500 Plug-in Car Grant, and a £500 reservation fee will get buyers a priority spot in the order queue.
Featuring a 205 mile (WLTP) range, the Corsa-e can be rapid charged in half an hour to 80%, and has an 11 kW on-board charger for home and public charging.
A 100 kW electric motor is powered by a 50 kWh battery, and performance figures are quoted with an 8.1 second 0-62mph time.
The first 500 customers to place a reservation will get a free home charge point installed when they take delivery of their new Corsa-e, and the Vauxhall’s battery has an eight year / 100,000 mile warranty to guarantee capacity of at least 70% is maintained.
Full specifications will be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, with production starting in January next year.
