The Mokka, in particular, has really been impressing critics, having just scooped the ‘Design Of The Year’ gong at the Top Gear 2021 awards.
And now, thanks to some clever engineering, you can travel even further between charges.
The range of the Corsa-e is now up to 222 miles, from 209 miles previously. While the Mokka-e’s all-electric distance has been boosted from 201 miles to 209 miles.
How have the men in white suits at Vauxhall managed to squeeze more out of the 50kWh battery that the Corsa-e and Mokka-e both share?
A spokesperson explains:
“The efficiency of the heat pump, which warms and cools the interior and is standard equipment on both models, is now even higher than before. Heat pumps are more efficient than conventional HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) systems, as they require less energy from the battery, to the benefit of driving range.
“Customers will notice the improvements particularly when driving in the winter months. A new transmission reducer that converts the motor revs into wheel speed helps optimise the range.”
Meanwhile A+ rated, low rolling resistance tyres have also been fitted for even greater efficiency.
There’s plenty to admire about the Corsa-e and the Mokka-e, even before you take the new range boost into consideration.
The Corsa-e is nimble and nippy - capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in just 7.6 seconds. The base ‘SE Premium’ trim even features goodies like rear parking sensors and cruise control as standard.
The Mokka-e, on the other hand, is a real head-turner, featuring Visor’ front end as well as a more commanding view of the road when compared with the Corsa-e.
What’s also good to know with the Corsa-e and Mokka-e is that 100 kW DC fast charging is an option - and something that’ll see 80% of the battery replenished in just 30 minutes.
A Vauxhall spokesperson adds:
“Corsa-e and Mokka-e form part of the British brand’s comprehensive electrification offensive. Vauxhall will offer an electrified variant across its entire model line-up by 2024 and will have a fully electric vehicle range by 2028 – years ahead of the UK Government deadline.”
