Vauxhall cuts electric Corsa pricing under range update
Vauxhall has slashed the pricing of its electric Corsa-e under a series of updates to the full Corsa line-up for the 2021 model year.
It means the pricing for the Corsa-e model, which offers a 209-mile range, is now priced from £26,640 (incl. Plug-in Car Grant) for the renamed SE Nav Premium trim – down by £1,025, in a move to make the switch to electric more attractive.
Meanwhile, the top-spec model, now known as the Elite Nav Premium, also gets a £265 price cut to £30,045 (again incl. PiCG).
The Corsa-e model line-up also gets a new sportier SRi Nav Premium trim, featuring 17-inch alloy wheels, sports seats, specific SRi interior with red accents, dark-tinted rear windows and sports pedal, while the existing trims have been renamed as SE Nav Premium and Elite Nav Premium to reflect their standard equipment.
Updates to the wider Corsa range see the introduction of a new 1.2 turbo 130hp eight-speed automatic engine with Normal, Eco and Sport modes, available on SRi and Ultimate Nav models, and capable of 0-60mph in 8.2 seconds.
Vauxhall has also expanded the trim line-up to add in a new Elite version, which sits below Elite Nav and Elite Nav Premium models and is aimed at customers who don’t need built-in navigation. It’s offered with the entry-level 1.2-litre 75hp petrol as well as the 100hp 1.2-litre turbo and 102hp 1.5-litre diesel
Other updates include a light pack as standard on SRi models – parcelling up LED front fog lights, LED tail lights and automatic lighting control. SRi and SRi Premium models also now come as standard with 17-inch bi-colour wheels.
Prices for the Corsa start from £16,440 (up by £25) for the 75hp 1.2-litre petrol in SE guise while the new SRi line-up starts from £19,690 (up by £325), reflecting the extra kit.
Order banks for the 2021 Corsa and Corsa-e are already open.
