FIRST DRIVE: New 2024 Vauxhall Corsa Electric. Has Vauxhall priced itself out? | Electrifying

#vauxhallcorsaelectric #corsaelectric #electriccars

Do you remember the Vauxhall ? Probably among the most friendly little electrical vehicles ever made, but one that likewise managed to be … how to state this politely? … a bit dull.

Luckily, it looks like someone at Vauxhall has actually been listening, so now we have this … the NEW Vauxhall Corsa Electric. A bit more grown-up looks-wise, and absolutely more modern. It's had a little a hardware upgrade too and can go even more on a charge.

But there's a bit of an issue. The rate. Although the Corsa-e was never precisely a bargain, it was one of the most affordable you could buy – particularly when Vauxhall included some rewards such as 0% finance. That all changes with the new Corsa Electric, which starts from just over ₤ 32k and goes up to ₤ 38k for the range-topper. That's nearly ₤ 40,000 … for a Corsa.

To try and soften the blow, Vauxhall has actually boosted the specification. The battery has grown from 50 to 51kWh, enough to jump the WLTP range from 222miles to 246, a 15% increase. Which doesn't seem like that much, right up till you need to get home without stopping … and it's 30 miles away …

Join Nicola as she takes a close look around Vauxhall's new Corsa Electric. What do you think about its makeover? Is it an enhancement or did you choose the old version? Is the high rate a deal-breaker? As constantly, we love you hear your views, so let us know what you believe in the remarks listed below.

    No it can’t justify that price but Vauxhall massively discount the RRP. We just bought the previous model Corsa Electric. RRP was £34k actual price was £19,750. The first price is plain daft, the latter a bargain in EV terms.
