Vauxhall's electric new five-seater Corsa and the Grandland X PHEV will go on sale by the summer of 2019, the carmaker has said, and form part of its plans to invest in electric models as part of its PACE! plan.
By the end of 2020, Vauxhall will have a total of four electrified models on offer. By 2024, there will be an electrified version of every Vauxhall model.
From early 2019 to the end of 2020, the company will launch eight all-new or refreshed models, investing primarily in high-volume and profitable segments. By then, Vauxhall will be offering one of the newest portfolios of all volume manufacturers.
In order to contribute to the CO2 compliance and to focus on high volume segments, the Vauxhall ADAM and VIVA will not be replaced after the end of their life cycles, but will remain on sale until the end of 2019. With the new portfolio, Vauxhall will continue to cover around 80 per cent of the mainstream market volume in 2020 – with significantly higher efficiency and customer-orientation while simultaneously reducing complexity.
