Electric Opel Corsa-e Priced From €29,900 In Germany, £26,490 In The UK

Opel and Vauxhall have released more details about the new Corsa-e electric supermini, including the pricing for the German and UK markets.

The automaker claims it is “democratizing electric mobility” as the Corsa-e starts from €29,900 (approximately $33,700), including VAT and before incentives (where those are applicable).

Unsurprisingly, that puts the Corsa-e on a collision course with Renault’s Zoe, which has a roughly identical base price in Germany. Opel points out that even the base Corsa-e Selection grade will offer comprehensive standard equipment.

It comes with automatic climate control with remote control, electric parking brake, keyless start, as well as the Multimedia radio with a 7-inch color touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Standard safety systems include front collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection and lane-keep assist.

There’s also a better-equipped Edition trim level that starts at €30,650 (about $34,500) and the range-topping First Edition which can be had for €32,900 ($37,000). The latter brings standard LED headlights, 17-inch light-alloy wheels, two-tone paint, and a digital cockpit. The Corsa-e First Edition can be leased for €299 a month.

In the UK, the Vauxhall Corsa-e will be offered in two trim levels, with the base one starting at £26,490 (approximately $33,600) — including the Government’s £3,500 Plug-in Car Grant. UK customers can reserve their Corsa-e starting today by paying a fully refundable £500 fee. Vauxhall says the first 500 customers to place a reservation will receive a free home charging kit when taking delivery. Lease deals start at £270 per month.

The Opel / Vauxhall Corsa-e offers a WLTP-rated driving range of up to 330 kilometers (205 miles) from a 50 kWh battery that can be fast-charged to 80 percent of its capacity in 30 minutes. The Corsa-e is powered by an electric motor rated at 100 kW (136 PS/134 hp) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque that enables it to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.1 seconds.

Customer deliveries of the new Corsa-e will begin in spring 2020.

    I’m really liking the design. I may check one out when they get here in east europe and eventually buy one

      Yeah it’s a really good looking car, I’m hoping that the petrol versions will have competetive prices.

    Why?

    A Tesla Model 3 will be a better choice for only 30k$ (about 26 000€)

      Wrong, Tesla Model 3 only sells cars that are nearly 15 000€ more expensive. European prices include 20% taxes. This Corsa would cost 24 000$, American price without taxes. Model 3 starts at 40 000$ in the US and without the compulsory destination and handling fees that don’t exist in Europe (so base Model 3 in the US actually costs 41 000$).

    About €6k too expensive. They obviously don’t want to sell this car in quantity.

  • Sybill Julian

    cool but too generic, pretty similar to clio or 208

    Interesting that no car journalist bothered to wonder (research) why GM has lost billions over decades on the Opel brand, and French PSA managed to do a successful turnaround, some say within a fiscal year. I have to admit, where former Opels oozed Chevrolet all over them, the new Corsa looks crisp, almost Audi-like.
