Vauxhall will build an electric Corsa for 2020

One of the UK’s best-selling cars is going all-electric

Vauxhall has confirmed that it intends to build a fully electric version of its best-selling Corsa supermini in 2020. News, no doubt, to interest the learner drivers and pensioners of this fair land.

It’ll also electrify the Grandland X as a plug-in hybrid, along with two other models and in total, plans on every single Vauxhall being electrified by 2024.

About that Corsa. Vauxhall is now part of the Peugeot-Citroen group, and as such the new supermini will likely share a platform with the next generation Peugeot 208 and Citroen C3. Said platform is capable of storing electricity for propulsive force, so it makes sense the 2020 Corsa would use this.

The enthusiasm for so much electricity in fact, forms Vauxhall’s ‘Pace’ plan. That plan also includes incorporating the design from the GT X Experimental thing we saw a few months back (pictured above). That thing was indeed Corsa-sized – roughly – albeit with suicide doors and self-driving ability.

Just imagine, though.
