The popularity of EVs are on the rise, and sales of battery electric vehicles are up 60%* over the last 12 months alone, with more and more people making the switch.
Here at James Haugh, we’re gearing up to welcome the first-ever electric version of one of Britain’s most popular cars, the Vauxhall Corsa.
Reservations are open now and it only takes £500 to ensure you’re one of the first to drive way in Vauxhall’s first ever electric Corsa. What’s more, the first 500 people to reserve, and go on to order, the all-new Corsa-e will receive a free home-charging kit.
The Corsa-e has been designed to make the transition to owning an EV as simple as possible. The car’s punchy performance sees it reach 62mph in just over eight seconds and it also boasts a generous range of 205 miles, bringing the same levels of performance found in a traditionally-powered car.
With Navi as standard, the new Corsa’s infotainment ranges from the Multimedia Navi with 7-inch colour touchscreen, to the top-of-the-range Multimedia Navi Pro with 10-inch colour touchscreen. Angled slightly toward the driver, each system is positioned for optimum ergonomics in the clearly arranged instrument panel.
Multimedia systems are compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and
feature control via integrated voice recognition.
They also offer the new Vauxhall Connect telematics service. With a host of helpful functions, such as Live Navigation with real-time traffic information, key vehicle data checking via an app, direct connection with roadside assistance and emergency call, the driver and passengers can enjoy additional peace-of-mind. Help can be reached within seconds via the red button. If the seatbelt tensioners or airbags are deployed, the emergency call is activated automatically.
Priced from £26,490, including the Government’s £3,500 Plug-in Car Grant, the Corsa-e will be available here at James Haugh in two highly-specified trims, both of which will come as standard along with a 7-inch touch screen, 11kWh on-board charger, satellite navigation, LED headlights, alloy wheels, rear parking sensors and DAB radio.
The Corsa-e is as easy to charge as it is to drive. It charges via a cable that can connect to a wallbox or fast charger and it comes backed with a comprehensive battery warranty, which guarantees that at least 70 per cent of its capacity is maintained for 100,000 miles, or eight years.
Full specifications and range pricing will be available when the Corsa-e receives its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2019.
