Opel goes
Electric

 

 

330
kilometres

is the Corsa-e’s range according to WLTP1, making the five-seater suitable for unconstrained every-day use. The 50 kWh battery can be fast-charged to 80 per cent of its capacity in 30 minutes. The Corsa-e is prepared for all charging options – via cable, wallbox or high-speed charging – and the battery is covered by an eight-year warranty.

 

 

3 modes

can be chosen by the driver – Normal, Eco and Sport. Sport increases responsiveness and driving dynamics, with a moderate loss of driving range. In Eco mode the Corsa-e becomes a long-distance runner, significantly increasing the range while hardly affecting comfort.

2.8 seconds²

needs the Corsa-e to sprint from zero to 50 km/h, only 8.1 seconds2 from zero to 100 km/h – a match for sports cars. Thanks to the 100kW (136hp) power output and a maximum 260 Nm of instantaneous torque, the highlights include responsiveness, agility and dynamic performance.

 

8 LED elements

are on board. Connoisseurs know: This is the adaptive, glare free IntelliLux LED®matrix light, that Opel offers for the first time in the small car segment. . The elements, controlled by a newest-generation high-resolution front camera, continuously adapt the light beam to the prevailing traffic situation and the surroundings.

 

 

 

4.06 metres

is the Corsa length – which thus remains an agile, practical and well-arranged five-seater. The roof line is coupé-like, 48mm lower than its predecessor’s, without detriment to headroom.

28 millimetres

lower is the driver’s seat position. Handling and driving dynamics benefit from the lower centre of gravity. The handling is responsive and dynamic, for more fun behind the steering wheel. The modern interior with fully digitalised cockpit can even be upgraded with leather seats.
