In 2021, the Corsa was the UK’s best-selling car. Now, Vauxhall have launched a fully electric version, known as the Corsa-e. It looks almost identical to the petrol-powered original, but with the added bonus of emitting absolutely zero carbon emissions, making this a fantastic eco-friendly option.
If space is one of your main considerations, you’ll be pleased to know that the Corsa-e has loads of it. Which is impressive, considering this is one of the smaller fully electric cars available for EV leasing today. Vauxhall have managed to combine a compact EV with quite a roomy and comfortable on-road experience, which is something that isn’t seen all that often in the electric car leasing world.
Of course, you can’t expect the sort of room you’d get with Vauxhall’s electric vans like the Combo e-Life or the Vivaro-e Life. For a small, economical vehicle though, you get a lot of bang for your buck.
Performance & range
The range of the Corsa-e is very good, coming in at around 222 miles on a single charge. This makes it a little better, performance-wise, than its closest Vauxhall-branded competitor, the Mokka-e, which travels 13 miles less on average before needing a recharge. When it is time though, the Corsa-e can be charged at more than 26,000 points located across the UK. A 100 kW rapid charge will get the car to 80% in 30 minutes, while a full, standard charge takes 7.5 hours.
The driving experience is very much just like a petrol Corsa. You’ll find this nippy little thing is quite punchy and quick to respond, making it an enjoyable driving experience that feels powerful.
With Vauxhall being part of the Stellantis Group alongside Peugeot, there are a lot of similarities between Vauxhall and Peugeot electric models. The Corsa-e is essentially a Peugeot e-208 in a Corsa’s body. The e-208 is a fantastic alternative if you like the sound of the Corsa-e but aren’t sure about leasing a Vauxhall electric car. Other options include the Renault Zoe, Honda e, and MINI Electric, which all share a number of similar features, but with very different types of visual appeal.
