Vauxhall Corsa-e

£ N/A
Published: 10 Mar 2020


What is it like on the inside?

All of the batteries are wedged beneath the floor, so passenger room is unaffected, and the boot is the same size above the carpet (with batteries filling what would be the spare wheel well). So this is a practical and usable thing; luggage capacity is 267 litres.

The dashboard is just like you’ll find in the regular Corsa, which is either good or bad news. This car is a very close cousin to the Peugeot e-208, don’t forget, and that’s a car with a mildly spectacular interior aesthetic including some genuinely jaw-dropping holographic dials, which aren’t nearly as gimmicky as they sound.

Whether it’s a damning indictment of Vauxhall’s lack of bravery or the lack of bravery of its buyers, we don’t know. But all of that’s been ditched for a slightly bleak, black cabin with a straighter-laced design.

There are perks to playing it safe: the climate control operates via physical buttons and dials, rather than through a sub-menu like in the Peugeot, which is a winner in our book. But we’d happily trade some ergonomic wins for a more exciting design. There’s no faulting it all works properly and is laid out sensibly, though. Let’s just hope it’s sensible you’re after.
