Vauxhall Corsa Electric review | Auto Express

The Vauxhall Corsa has been a stalwart of the motoring market since its launch in 1993. Now, the British marque has taken the next step in its evolution, with the debut of its first ever electric version. The new Corsa-e is powered by a 50 kWh lithium-ion battery, delivering a range of up to 209 miles on a single charge.

For those looking for a nippy, urban-friendly vehicle, the Corsa-e is sure to be a popular choice. Acceleration is brisk, with the electric motor offering a maximum power output of 134bhp, and a 0–62mph time of 8.1 seconds.

Inside, the cabin has been designed to provide plenty of space and comfort. The dashboard features a 10-inch colour touchscreen, and the seats are trimmed in soft-touch materials. There’s also plenty of storage space on offer, with a generous 380-litre boot.

The Corsa-e is also well equipped when it comes to safety features. Autonomous emergency braking and lane-keeping assist are both standard, and a suite of driver assistance systems are also available as an option.

Overall, the Vauxhall Corsa-e is an impressive addition to the electric vehicle market. Its combination of performance, comfort and practicality make it an ideal choice for those looking for an affordable, capable electric car.
