Generation 6 of the Opel Corsa. The compact is now available with a gasoline or diesel engine, and soon to boast an electric model. Since its debut in 1982, almost 14 million Corsas have been sold.
With the all-new, sixth-generation Corsa, Opel is offering for the first time a battery-electric version of the bestseller with a range of 330 kilometers (WLTP, provisional figure) (205 miles): the Corsa-e.
Opel chose the brand’s most popular model to bring electric mobility out of its niche-existence. More than 13.6 million units of the Corsa have been produced since the world premiere in 1982. The order books for the sixth-generation Corsa will open in a few weeks, beginning with the Corsa-e, followed by the diesel and gasoline versions.
The 50 kWh battery can be fast-charged to 80% of its capacity in 30 minutes. The Corsa-e is prepared for multiple charging options—via cable, wall box or high-speed charging—and the battery is covered by an eight-year warranty. The state-of-charge can be checked with the “myOpel” app so that charging times and costs can be optimized at all times.
The driver can choose from three driving modes: Normal, Eco and Sport. Sport increases responsiveness and driving dynamics, with a moderate loss of driving range. In Eco mode, the Corsa-e increases the range.
The 100kW (136hp) power output and a maximum 260 N·m of torque produce a 0-50 km/h time of 2.8 seconds and a 0-100km/h time of 8.1 seconds.
