Thanks to its pure-electric drivetrain, the Vauxhall Corsa electric is as kind to bank balances as it is to the environment. Not only is it affordable to run, it also delivers 222 miles on a single charge, ensuring you have plenty of range for your everyday needs. What’s more, with a rapid charger, the battery reaches 80 per cent from zero in just 30 minutes.
Introducing New Corsa Electric. Delivering effortless acceleration, the 100% electric engine glides from 0-60-mph in just 7.6 seconds and achieves an instant 260Nm of torque. When driving in B-mode, the regenerative braking system returns most of the energy from braking back to the battery, helping to reserve your range.
There’s also a choice of driving modes. Increase the fun with Sport mode or switch to Eco mode and boost your range. And with no noise or tailpipe emissions, it’s a clean drive that’s better for the environment. Why not see for yourself.
There’s different charging options with Corsa Electric to make life simple. You can charge it at home using a Home Wallbox, which achieves a full charge in just 7.5 hours. Good to know.

The Corsa electric comes well-equipped, with all models featuring LED High Beam Assist headlights and LED daytime running lights as standard. Inside, this five-seat supermini boasts plenty of standard-issue tech, such as a seven-inch touchscreen and six-speaker sound system with DAB radio, as well as climate control.
The 222 mile range will take you far. But there are various factors which will have an influence on your range such as your driving style, vehicle load, tyre pressure, thermal comfort and heating and exterior temperature. Adopting a gentler driving style, avoiding difficult road conditions and the use of climate control will help to maximise your range.
Switching to electric means lower running, operating and maintenance costs. For extra peace of mind, the Corsa Electric also comes with 8 years free battery warranty and roadside assistance.
