The Corsa-e has a range of 205 mile, this can be extended by up to 40% in Eco mode. The battery can be charged to 80% capacity in 30 minutes at a rapid-charge station.
With 136hp and 260Nm of torque from the electric propulsion system, the Corsa-e sprints from 0-31mph in just 2.8 seconds. The Corsa-e reaches 62mph in just 8.1 seconds.
Corsa-e drivers can choose from three drive modes: Normal, Eco and Sport. In Normal mode, the 50kWh battery allows a driving range of 211 miles according to WLTP. Sport alters responsiveness and delivers more performance, which result in a moderate loss in driving range of around 10%. In “Eco”, the Corsa-e becomes a long-distance runner. All the car’s systems and the electric drive are adjusted for maximum energy efficiency, without significant detrimental effect on comfort. Compared with “Sport”, range is increased by up to 40%.
In order to further improve efficiency, the Corsa-e features a regenerative braking system to recover the energy produced under braking or deceleration. This excess kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy and either used immediately or stored in the battery. The driver can choose between two levels. At the lower level, the Corsa-e’s deceleration is similar to the engine-braking of a conventional car. At the highest level of energy recuperation, the drag torque of the electric motor is much higher.
The Corsa-e is as easy to charge as it is to drive. It charges via a cable that can connect to a wallbox or fast charger (and the battery is guaranteed for eight years). The Corsa-e is equipped as standard with an 11kW on-board charger.
