This electric vehicle is not available yetThe introduction of the new Vauxhall Corsa is expected soon. The electric version will probably be branded as the e-Corsa. Although nothing has been confirmed as of yet, it's certain that the e-Corsa will be built on PSA's e-CMP platform. The Peugeot e-208 and the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense will both be built on this platform as well. As a result, the e-Corsa is expected to share the exact same powertrain. The most important specification for the Vauxhall will therefore be pricing. The Corsa shouldn't dissappoint, as the price point is said to be 'groundbreaking'. More details will follow closer to the launch.

Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Vauxhall e-Corsa. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.
NOTE: Vauxhall has not released details about the on-board charger of the e-Corsa. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.
|Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Power||Time||Rate|
|Wall Plug (2.3 kW)||230V / 1x10A||2.3 kW||25h45m||8 mph|
|1-phase 16A (3.7 kW)||230V / 1x16A||3.7 kW||16 hours||12 mph|
|1-phase 32A (7.4 kW)||230V / 1x32A||7.4 kW||8 hours||25 mph|
|3-phase 16A (11 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW||5h30m||36 mph|
|3-phase 32A (22 kW)||400V / 3x16A||11 kW †||5h30m||36 mph|
† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.
Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)
Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Vauxhall e-Corsa.
Vauxhall has not released details about rapid charging the e-Corsa. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely rapid charging capabilities.
- Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
- Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
- Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
- Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
|Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)|
|Charging Point||Max. Power||Avg. Power||Time||Rate|
|CCS (50 kW DC)||50 kW||45 kW||50 min||160 mph|
|CCS (100 kW DC)||100 kW||75 kW †||30 min||270 mph|
|CCS (175 kW DC)||100 kW †||75 kW †||30 min||270 mph|
† = Limited by fastcharge capabilities of vehicle
NOTE: Most rapid charges are currently limited to 50 kW. Chargers with more power are expected in the near future.
All about the Vauxhall e-Corsa
The Vauxhall e-Corsa has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £26,000. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Vauxhall e-Corsa is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Vauxhall e-Corsa is £22,500.
Drivetrain and Performance
The Vauxhall e-Corsa is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Vauxhall e-Corsa is 100 kW (134 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 192 lb-ft. The Vauxhall e-Corsa is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 8.0 seconds. The estimated top speed is 93 mph.
Battery and Charging
The battery of the Vauxhall e-Corsa has an estimated total capacity of 50 kWh. The usable capacity is 50 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 195 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.
For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 135 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 290 mi.
Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 11 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 5 hours 30 minutes. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 8 hours and a charge rate of 25 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 25 hours 45 minutes.
Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 100 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 75 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 135 miles of range.
The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Vauxhall e-Corsa is about 255 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 158 mpg in a traditional petrol car.
The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 370 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 170 Wh per mile.
The Vauxhall e-Corsa emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
