Explore Vauxhall’s all-electric Corsa with these infographics

Vauxhall’s all-electric Corsa-e is a new take on an evergreen favourite, replacing the standard internal-combustion engine with a 50kWh lithium-ion battery and a 136bhp motor for a greener and more economical drive.

Check out our infographics that reveal some of the key features offered by this new pure-electric version of the popular Vauxhall, from its range and charging rate to infotainment and safety tech.

The Corsa-e’s powerful electric motor delivers smooth and peppy performance, accelerating from 0-60 mph in 7.6 seconds. You can switch up your driving experience with the range-extending Eco mode – which can take you as far as 209 miles on a full charge – or boost your performance in Sport mode.

There’s no need to worry about changing gears, with the electric motor offering a seamless and silent drive. All you need to do is put your foot down.

The impressive range of the Corsa-e comes courtesy of its 50kWh lithium-ion battery. At a rapid charging station, the car can reach 80 per cent charge in as little as 30 minutes, while a fast 7.4kW charger will have you fully charged in just over 7 hours and 30 minutes. Regenerative braking allows you to boost your battery’s charge on the go, too.

Vauxhall is currently offering a free six-month subscription to BP Chargemaster's Polar Network for Corsa-e buyers. Orders placed before 5 October 2020 will also receive a free home charge unit worth £800 from the manufacturer’s wallbox partner Pod Point.

Vauxhall’s all-electric car is fully connected with the latest technology. All the information you need is at your fingertips thanks to the 7-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system (the Elite Nav model features an upgraded 10-inch screen), with smartphone mirroring. You can even access information about how economically you are driving and tips for how to maximise the car’s range.

The Corsa-e features Bluetooth connectivity and is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Optional extras for the interior include heated steering wheel and seats, massage front seat and electronic climate control for complete control over your environment.

The Corsa-e is designed for maximum economy. Boasting a reduced weight from previous models, it will get you where you need to go from as little as 3p per mile.

With a 267-litre boot capacity and convenient storage cubbies throughout – coupled with its impressive range – it’s ideal for everything from getting around town to longer, cross-country excursions.

The Corsa-e comes with a range of safety features to steer you away from danger to keep the driver and passengers safe in an emergency. Lane-keeping assistance, speed-limit recognition, a driver drowsiness warning system, hill-start assistance, automatic emergency braking, rear parking distance sensors and ISOFIX child-seat fixings on outer rear seats are included as standard.

The Elite Nav also adds blind-spot monitoring, front parking distance sensors and a panoramic rear-view camera to that extensive list of safety features.
