Battery and Charging
|Range WLTP||205 miles (330 km)|
Battery pack capacity
kWh is a unit of energy, equivalent to the energy transferred in one hour by one kilowatt of power. The average electric car can do around 3 mi (5 km) on 1 kWh of energy.
Max charging power (AC)
Maximum power the car can take when charging from an alternating current power socket. It is determined by the on-board charger power.
Max charging power (DC)
Maximum power the car can take when charging at specially designed DC charging stations. Such stations are usually located near the main highways to enable convenient road trips.
|Avg. charging speed (DC)||~287 mph|
|Acceleration 0-60 mph||7.9 s|
|Top speed||93 mph (150 km/h)|
|Engine power||136 hp (101 kW)|
|Engine torque||192 lb-ft (260 Nm)|
|Efficiency||24 kWh/100 miles|
Permanent-magnet motor is good for efficiency, while AC-induction motor can produce greater power.
Body and Chassis
|Number of seats||5|
|Dimensions (LxWxH)||160 x 69 x 56 in|
Curb weight or kerb weight is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables such as transmission oil and air conditioning refrigerant, while not loaded with either passengers or cargo.
Maximum cargo volume of the vehicle with the seats upright.
With a range of 330 km according to WLTP, the five-seat Corsa-e is suitable for unconstrained every-day use. The 50 kWh battery can be fast-charged to 80 per cent of its capacity in 30 minutes. The Corsa-e is prepared for all charging options – via cable, wallbox or high-speed charging – and the battery is covered by an eight-year warranty.
The Corsa-e’s propulsion system combines emission-free driving with a maximum “fun-to-drive” factor. Thanks to the 100kW (136hp) power output and a maximum 260Nm (192 lb-ft) of instantaneous torque it needs only 8.1 seconds from zero to 100 km/h.
The top features include the adaptive, glare-free IntelliLux LED matrix light that Opel offers for the first time in the small car segment. The eight LED elements, controlled by a high-resolution front camera, continuously adapt the light beam to the prevailing traffic situation and the surroundings.
Radar supported adaptive speed control and sensor-based flank-guard celebrate their premiere in the new Corsa. Side blind-spot assist and a variety of parking assistants are also available.
The Corsa-e looks dynamic thanks to its sporty design, while the compact exterior dimensions of previous generations are retained. With a length of 4.06 metres the Corsa remains an agile, practical and well-arranged five-seater. The roof line is coupé-like, 48mm lower than its predecessor’s, without detriment to headroom. The driver sits 28mm lower. Handling and driving dynamics benefit from the lower centre of gravity. The handling is responsive and dynamic, for more fun behind the steering wheel. The modern interior with fully digitalised cockpit can be upgraded with leather seats.
