Vauxhall will embark on an electric-focused technology drive, which it says will transform its range over the next two years at a similar rate to its first heady days as a car manufacturer at the start of the last century.
Two all-new models – next-generation versions of the Mokka X SUV and Vivaro van – will be fully electrified, and go in to production in 2020. In addition, Vauxhall has announced that two more electrified vehicles – the Grandland X PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) and the battery-electric, next-generation Corsa – will go on sale in the first half of 2019.
The Grandland X PHEV’s propulsion system will develop the equivalent of up to 300 horsepower, and will come with e-All Wheel Drive technology. At the other end of the scale, the Corsa BEV will electrify one of the UK’s best known automotive nameplates, with Vauxhall promising to bring the car to market at a competitive price.
