Vauxhall is moving forward to create more environmentally-friendly and also offer reduced CO2 emissions for a cleaner and more sustainable motability option. The next generation best-selling Corsa will be offered as a fully electric model, and the new Grandland X as a plug-in hybrid.
The government wants to help us switch to electric vehicles so they have put together a package of grants for drivers. For starters you could get up to £3,500 off a 100% electric car - to qualify for a grant, cars must have CO2 emissions of less than 50/km and a zero emission range of at least 70 miles. MORE good news you could get a grant of up to £500 towards installing an authorised home charging unit. It is the fastest and safest way to charge your vehicle.
The average car journey in the UK is around seven miles**, so electric driving offers an eco-friendly option, which works for you and helps the environment. That’s why we’re launching four electrified vehicles by 2020. And why we will be expanding our whole model range to offer an electrified option by 2024 - either as a pure battery-driven vehicle or as a plug-in hybrid. They’ll be part of a range that also includes further-improved low-emission internal combustion engines.
Low or zero emission electric vehicles pay less in Clean Air Zones in the UK and the Ultra Low Emission Zone in London. Many local councils also offer free parking, reduced Residents' parking permits, access to bus lanes and even free electricity.
Corsa e - 12p x 50kWhbattery = £6.00 for full charge. £6.00 / 205 range = 3p per mile. Corsa - 1.4(75ps) corsa 5 dr = 45 litre/9.9 gallons petrol tank, £1.20/litre, 42.2 - 43.5 mpg, £5.54/mpg = 13p per mile.
Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) give you flexibility as they have both an electric motor and an internal combustion engine. So you can either recharge by plugging in to home or public socket, or fill up with petrol or diesel. They combine the advantages of an electric vehicle for short, every-day drive with those of an internal combustion engine for longer journey.
Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) are 100% electric. As there is no internal combustion engine, they don’t produce any exhaust emissions. They are driven by an electric motor, powered by a battery you plug in to the mains.

Fuel consumption figures are determined according to the WLTP test cycle.
CO2 emissions figures are determined according to the WLTP test cycle however, a Government formula is then applied to translate these figures back to what they would have been under the outgoing NEDC test cycle, which WLTP replaces. The correct tax treatment is then applied. Figures are intended for comparability purposes only. The fuel consumption you achieve under real-life driving conditions and CO2 produced will depend upon a number of factors, including the accessories fitted after registration, variations in driving styles, weather conditions and vehicle load. Only compare fuel consumption and CO2 with other vehicles tested using the same technical procedures.
