The new Opel Corsa Electric - new 115 kW motor and 402 km of range

24 May 2023, 10:14:33

The new Opel Corsa Electric - new 115 kW motor and 402 km of rangeThe new Opel Corsa Electric has been unveiled today featuring new drivetrain. It will arrive with two electric drive options: one with 100 kW/136 hp and a further improved range of up to 357 km and a second one with 115 kW/156 hp and up to 402 km of range. So the Corsa Electric is not only highly efficient – with its battery electric power and 260 Nm of torque on tap, it also ensures pure driving pleasure in any case. And when the Corsa Electric needs to be recharged, it can be done quickly. At a fast charger, the battery reaches up to 80 percent of its total capacity in just 30 minutes (20-80%).

The new Opel Corsa Electric also features a new design. The most striking feature is the unmistakable Opel Vizor, the characteristic brand face that adorns all new Opel models. The black “visor” covers the front of the Corsa and seamlessly integrates the vehicle grille, the LED headlights, and the central Opel Blitz in one element. Depending on the trim level, the brand logo on the front and rear is presented in eye-catching black or matt satin silver. The optical “air inlets” in the lower front bumper area are larger and more prominent than before, planting the Corsa even firmer on the road.

The side view of the new Corsa also impresses with its characteristic lines. The “break-through” C-pillar seems to allow the roof, which comes in black (depending on trim level), to float above the vehicle. The rear-end also portrays a clear picture: the Corsa nameplate now appears – as was seen for the first time a few months ago on the “Opel Corsa 40” limited edition – in the centre of the tailgate. And the Grafik Grey paintwork, available for the first time for the Corsa, help the newcomer shine in new splendor.

Thanks to numerous new features, the Corsa also creates a modern feel-good atmosphere in the interior. New seat patterns as well as a new shift lever and steering wheel design all contribute. However, the highlight – both visually and technically – is the optional fully digital cockpit with new infotainment. The integrated Snapdragon Cockpit Platform from Qualcomm Technologies1 features enhanced graphics, multimedia, computer vision and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to provide a more integrated, contextually aware and constantly adaptive cockpit system that can evolve to meet its passengers’ preferences.

Just like in the development of the latest Astra generation, the “Detox to the max” principle was applied: the navigation system offers connected services, natural speech recognition “Hey Opel” and over-the-air updates. In addition, the displays in the 10-inch colour touchscreen of the navigation and multimedia system and in the driver information display have been made even clearer, so that all important information can be viewed in a fraction of a second. And the newcomer has another trick up its sleeve. For the first time, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible smartphones will be connected to the vehicle's multimedia systems and also recharged – both wirelessly.

Since 2019, the adaptive, glare-free Intelli-Lux LED matrix light in particular has shown how the Corsa makes innovations in the small car segment available to everyone. The engineers are continuously working on further developments and the new Corsa benefits from this commitment. A total of 14 instead of eight individually controllable LED elements ensure a stadium-bright driving experience that now “cuts out” other road users even more precisely than before. There are also numerous other state-of-the-art assistance systems that make driving and manoeuvring more relaxed. The offer ranges from the new, high-resolution panoramic rear-view camera to the adaptive cruise control and speed limiter and flank guard to the forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection.
