How long has Vauxhall been producing EVs?

The first Vauxhall electric car was launched in 2011, after the Vauxhall Ampera was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show and went on to win the 2012 European Car of the Year award.

Following the success of the Ampera, Vauxhall announced electric versions of some of their most popular models, including the Mokka-e, Corsa-e, Vivaro-e, and the Combo-e. Vauxhall has committed to releasing an electric version of its entire catalogue by the year 2024, and will only produce electric vehicles from 2028.

Why driving an EV is great

There are plenty of reasons why driving an electric car is great, and benefits not only you as the driver, but also the environment.

While Vauxhall produces great petrol and diesel cars, the benefits of an EV mean they’re the perfect choice for drivers looking to make the switch to electric:

  • There are far fewer moving parts in an EV, which means maintaining them is cheaper and there’s less that can potentially go wrong
  • Charging an EV is quick and simple – by using a rapid charge point, you can charge your EV’s battery to 80% in as little as 20 minutes
  • EVs are far kinder to the environment, and by using green energy to charge the battery they can be completely carbon neutral after manufacture
  • Compared to petrol and diesel, the cost of charging an EV is considerably cheaper than a tank of fuel

Why Vauxhall produces excellent EVs

If you’re looking for an affordable and reliable electric car, then Vauxhall should be high on your list of considerations. Whatcar even called the Corsa-e ‘a great all-rounder’. Below are just some of the reasons why Vauxhall makes great electric cars.

Great range

The Corsa-e has a range up to 222 miles, with the Mokka-e not far behind at 209 miles. With rapid charge, it takes just 30 minutes to charge the battery to 80%.

Sleek design

Vauxhall has sleek, stylish designs that are smart and modern.

Fast acceleration

While not quite fast enough to be considered sporty, Vauxhall electric cars have great acceleration, with the Corsa-e capable of 0-60mph in 8 seconds.

Full of tech

Vauxhall pack their EVs with tech, including an infotainment centre with a seven-inch touchscreen.

How do Vauxhall EVs compare to its non-electric cars?

Vauxhall electric cars look every bit as sleek as their petrol and diesel cars, but have a much more positive impact on the environment by producing lower emissions and noise pollution.

One of the biggest differences between Vauxhall EVs and their petrol and diesel counterparts is how much they cost to run. According to Vauxhall’s website, to charge a Corsa-e using a charge point at home will cost you just £7. When compared to the cost of a tank of fuel, charging an electric car is considerably less expensive for drivers who regularly travel both short and long distances.

Vauxhall EVs on Subscription

While the cost of buying a Vauxhall EV is reasonable, it still requires a large deposit, which can prevent eager drivers from taking home an electric Vauxhall of their own.

However, an alternative to buying is a Vauxhall subscription through elmo.

An elmo electric car subscription includes insurance, service, MOT, and breakdown cover costs, meaning driving a Vauxhall EV of your own is more affordable than ever.
