From Opel Corsa-e to Vivaro-e: 100 kW fast charge ‘provided’

From Opel Corsa-e to Vivaro-e: 100 kW fast charge ‘provided’

Whether 100% of Opel Corsa-e, Mokka-e, Combo-e Life, Zafira-e Life electric vehicles or commercial Combo-e and Vivaro-e electric vehicles – all suitable for fast (DC) charging power of 100 kW. This means, for example, that the Opel Corsa-e 50 kWh battery can be charged up to 80% in just 30 minutes. The fast charging power of 100 kW is normal, regardless of the Opel model and the board charger installed.

For charging using a switch (AC), the electric Opel, depending on the model, has a 7.4 kW or 11 kW board charger as standard or optional (be). This makes Opel designs suitable for a variety of charging options, from AC charging phases 1 to 3 and from wall box to household socket.

To make Opel electronics operation more enjoyable, OpelConnect, myOpel software and Free2Move provide specific solutions and services. For example, a variety of payment status can be monitored via the app on a smartphone and the start time of the payment period can be set. When the car is on the charger, the app can even turn on or cool the car’s interior before leaving.

With the services of Free2Move, Opel’s permanent mobility partner, it is easy to search for charging parts and navigate to them. For longer trips, a convenient route can be arranged, with one or more stations in the charging section. The ‘Charge My Car’ charging card can also be requested through Free2Move, which gives users access to more than 220,000 charging stations across Europe.

Running comfortably: impressive performance without productivity

Each electric Opel ensures the comfort of driving without domestic production. The electric motor used in the models provides a output of 100 kW (136 hp) with a maximum torque of 260 Nm directly from the stand. For example, the Opel Corsa-e accelerates from 0-50 km / h in 2.8 seconds and from 0-100 km / h in 8.1 seconds.

Drivers can choose between three modes of driving – Normal, Eco and Sport – to adjust the balance between driving pleasure and efficiency. While driving, the current state of charge, energy consumption and the remaining frequencies can be monitored at the touch of a button via the infotainment screen.

Opel’s electronic models are part of a massive power plant attack launched several years ago. Nine Opel electronics designs are now on sale, including a hybrid of plug-ins. The electronic version of each Opel model will be available around 2024, with the brand distributing only 100 percent electric vehicles in Europe from 2028.
