Introducing the Opel Corsa-E
It's time to switch it up. The Opel Corsa-e is here, and it's ready to convince the nation that now is the time to seriously consider an electric car as your next primary mode of transport.
The latest model has been designed from the beginning to incorporate an electric powertrain, so there are no compromises in terms of design or practicality when compared with the petrol or diesel powered Corsa - it looks the same and has the same amount of boot space.
It gets excellent levels of standard equipment, and because electric cars have significantly cheaper running costs compared to a petrol car. Are you convinced yet?
The first thing everybody wonders about an electric car is its range. The Corsa-e has a maximum range of 357km, and you can make the most of this by using the two-stage regenerative braking as well as the 'Eco' drive mode which reduces energy consumption significantly.
Performance-wise, this is the fastest accelerating Corsa you can buy. 0 to 100km/h is dealt with in just 7.6 seconds - a fair bit faster than both the petrol and diesel models.
The reason for such excellent performance is that electric motors can produce 100 percent of their maximum torque at any given moment, compared with a combustion engine that needs to increase its rpm before it can generate its maximum pulling power, and even then, it only does it for a moment or two.
Keeping your Corsa-e topped up with juice is really simple. For most people, the best way to do it is charge it up overnight at home, like your smartphone.
All you need to do is get a wall box installed in a convenient position at your home, then plug it in overnight - a full charge takes 7.5 hours. We can help arrange this for you.
When you're out on the road, you can make use of one of the public electric vehicle charging points. Rapid 100kw charging stations can boost the battery by 80 percent in just 30 minutes - just enough time for a coffee and a slice of cake while you wait.
To celebrate 40 years of progress in Opel superminis, we're delighted to introduce the Corsa-e Anniversary Edition – a 100% electric Limited Edition Corsa.
The Corsa-e Anniversary Edition features a range of unique styling updates and enhanced levels of specification, plus an exclusive ‘Record Red’ exterior paint inspired by the original Nova.

Electric cars have just become mainstream with the 100 percent electric Corsa-e.
