VAUXHALL has taken another major step towards becoming a fully electric brand from 2028, with the successor to the Crossland set to be offered with an all-electric version in 2024.
The new addition to the line-up means that every model in the Vauxhall range will be available with a battery-electric variant as early as next year.
Vauxhall’s growing electrified range already features five fully-electric passenger car models, including Corsa Electric, Mokka Electric, Combo Life Electric and Vivaro Life Electric. These vehicles have recently been joined by Astra Electric, which is available to order now, and will be joined by the Astra Sports Tourer Electric later this year. This will be followed in 2024 by the all-electric successors to the Crossland and Grandland, completing the fully-electric offering for the brand.
Vauxhall already offers a fully-electric variant across its entire LCV range and is one of few manufacturers to do so – comprising Combo Electric, Vivaro Electric and Movano Electric.
James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “2024 will see us achieve the significant milestone of offering a fully-electric variant across our entire model line-up. It also confirms that going forward, all future Vauxhall models will be offered with a fully-electric variant from launch – demonstrating our commitment towards driving Britain to a brighter, electric future.”
The portfolio of Vauxhall electrified vehicles also features Plug-In Hybrid versions of Astra, Astra Sports Tourer and Grandland, all of which earlier this year became the first models to wear the badge of Vauxhall’s new electrified performance sub-brand – Gse (Grand Sport electric). Grandland GSe is the most powerful model in Vauxhall’s line-up, offering a system power output of 300hp and maximum torque of 520Nm.
Vauxhall is also adding a new Hybrid powertrain to its electrified line-up. The 100hp and 136hp engines with a new dual-clutch automatic transmission will be available on New Corsa later this year, giving customers a choice of battery-electric, Hybrid or highly efficient combustion engines.
