Vauxhall will sell only battery electric cars from 2028. The brand plans on switching over its entire product line-up to the zero-emissions technology seven years ahead of the government deadline to end the sales of combustion and hybrid-engined models. 

The news follows the 1 March announcement that Vauxhall’s parent company, the Stellantis group, would sell only fully-electric cars in Europe by 2026, as part of its Dare 2030 strategy. This is designed to cut the carbon footprint of the manufacturing giant by 50 per cent.

Popular models including the Vauxhall Crossland, Vauxhall Insignia and Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer will get fully-electric powertrains. They’ll also be joined by the returning Manta nameplate from 2025, which is likely to appear on a sleek SUV.

The Stellantis-owned manufacturer said in a statement that Vauxhall is “on a mission to electrify Britain and provide vehicles that perfectly meet motorists’ needs”. It also announced that its EV models will offer a driving range of between 310 and 497 miles, while rapid-charging would be “best-in-class’ with the ability to add 20 miles of range per minute.

Vauxhall currently sells fully-electric models including the Corsa-e supermini, the Mokka-e crossover the Combo-e Life and the Vivaro-e Life, while a battery electric Vauxhall Astra-e family hatchback is imminent. The latest announcement means the combustion-engined Astra, in both hatchback and Sport Tourer guise, and the Grandland SUV with Vauxhall’s Plug-in Hybrid-e powertrain will be phased out before the deadline.
