Electric Vehicles

VAUXHALL ELECTRIC VEHICLES

Vauxhall is powering ahead to become a leader in creating vehicles that are more environmentally-friendly and offer reduced CO2 emissions for a cleaner and more sustainable mobility option that’s available to everyone.

 

The next generation best-selling Corsa will be offered as a fully electric model, and the new Grandland X as a plug-in hybrid, both being available to order from mid-2019.

 

The average car journey in the UK is around seven miles**, so electric driving offers an eco-friendly option, which works for you and helps the environment. That’s why we’re launching four electrified vehicles by 2020. And why we will be expanding our whole model range to offer an electrified option by 2024 - either as a pure battery-driven vehicle or as a plug-in hybrid. They’ll be part of a range that also includes further-improved low-emission internal combustion engines.

 

Stay tuned for more information, coming soon.

What are the different types of electric vehicles?

PHEV

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) give you flexibility as they have both an electric motor and an internal combustion engine. So you can either recharge by plugging in to home or public socket, or fill up with petrol or diesel.
 

They combine the advantages of an electric vehicle for short, every-day drive with those of an internal combustion engine for longer journey.

 
BEV
Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) are 100% electric. As there is no internal combustion engine, they don’t produce any exhaust emissions. They are driven by an electric motor, powered by a battery you plug in to the mains.
