    From £40,000, way too expensive therefore not the slightest bit interested! Considering the battery technology used in this car will be obsolete within a year anyone buying this must be bonkers!

    Astras used to sell for 14,000-16,000, whereas Vectras went for 19,000-24,000. These over-inflated prices are nothing short of highway robery. Keep also in mind that the electric vehicles also come with a hidden cost of around 10,000 ever 7-10 years to replace the battery.

      The batteries last the lifetime of the car, around 10 to 20 years. I have a 7 year old Nissan Leaf, 24kWh battery. It still have the full 12 bars of SOH battery indicator. The key is to not charge to 100% unless you need to, and never run it down below 10%. This is because the individual cells do not like to be either 100% fully charged (reduces life) or risk them running down to 0% state of charge (SOC) which can cause a reversal of the cell polarity.

      @TL perhaps the manufs should set them up to run 10-90 and label it as 0-100 with a minimal creeper range beyond then and fit 10% bigger batteries

      @david stuart They do. It is referred to as “the buffer”.

      @david stuart Gross battery capacity vs Useable battery capacity.

      This is a common myth. Any EV produced in the last 5 years will have a battery that will likely out live the car. This all came from very early Nissan leafs from 2011-2012 era that had a different battery chemistry. Things have moved on. There are Tesla’s that have done more than 300k miles and still going with relatively minimal degradation.

    A 51 KWh astra or a used 62Kwh Leaf for less than half the price… No brainer really… 🤣🤣

    Think you need to address front page Times newspaper Front Page News about Electric chargers ( yes unlike Guru cars etc You have addressed this subject but then what Times saying is Alarming ). You should tell your mates in the other publications and channels who you meet in the press pool Start talking Serious about this subject and more Importantly start asking Serious Hard questions to who ever .

    Only seen a couple of Astras on road. Which is mad. Im a motor trader. People aren’t buying Astra. So see 308

      True, a car design for the working class but priced at the luxury end. Teslas can be had for the same money.

      Plenty of Corsa and Mokka about in my are. Only seen two of the new Astra. Same with the sister Peugeot 308. The petrol and diesel Astra are reasonably priced though

    What we are seeing here is ‘ordinary folks’ being priced off the road. Not yet – but that is the direction of travel.

    MG4 is a no brainier at that price, relatively speaking

    £40K for a Vauxhall !!! no one in their right mind would spend that cash on this.

    1. Trackingcookie Avatar

      Thats the plan

    Vauxhall will destroy their own brand if they really want to be all electric in 5 years with cars of this expense. The price needs to drop at least 25% first.

    No doubt there will be “eco clowns” who think this is a bargain just because it is electric!!
