The blitz brand has just launched the electric version of its versatile city car called Opel Corsa-e. This does not prevent the firm recently acquired by the PSA group from thinking about the future of the mechanics of the next generation model.
Our colleagues from the English publication Autocar spoke with Vauxhall manager Stephan Norman about the future of energy in the Corsa multi-purpose urban. The man revealed his point of view regarding the future of thermal mechanics within the supply of the model’s motors.
According to Stephan Norman: “With electrification, ultra-city cars and multi-city cars will become more relevant than in the past. The next urban cars like the Opel Corsa will be 100% electric. I am particularly sure.” The manager then added: “in 2025, no manufacturer will offer diesel or petrol engines”. Norman also admitted during the interview that no upgraded version of the Corsa like the Fiesta Active is planned. According to him, customers interested in this type of product will turn to the Mokka X.
As a reminder, the new Opel Corsa-e offers an electric motor delivering 134 horsepower on the ground for 260 Nm of torque. This mechanism allows it to shoot down 0 to 100 km / h in 8.1 seconds. The battery offers a range of 330 kilometers.
