VAUXHALL has taken another step on its journey to electrification by introducing GSe – a new top-of-the-range electrified performance sub-brand.
The brand has already committed to offering an electrified version of every model on sale by 2024 and only sell 100% electric vehicles from 2028 and the new GSe will stand for Grand Sport Electric.
James Taylor, Acting Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “GSe will offer sports handling and looks combined with the performance and responsibility of electrified powertrains. Sitting atop the newly simplified Vauxhall range, the GSe name is both a nod to GSi performance models from our heritage as well being a complement to the GS versions in our line-up today.”
The Vauxhall electric vehicle line-up comprises the Corsa Electric, Mokka Electric, Combo Life Electric and Vivaro Life Electric and will soon be joined Astra Electric and Astra Sports Tourer Electric. The Astra, Astra Sports Tourer and Grandland are available as Plug-in Hybrids.
Vauxhall already offers an electric version of every van in the range. Vauxhall is committed to only offering electric cars and vans from 2028 – seven years ahead of the UK Government’s deadline.
Further details on the GSe sub-brand will be announced later.
