Almost 4 years have passed since the launch of the purely electric version of the Opel Corsa, the Corsa E. This car was also born under the authority of the Stellantis Group. However, the painted exterior has since overtaken Opel’s current look, so the time was definitely right for a complete facelift for Opel’s smallest electric car. All this brings external and internal renewal to future customers.
The first thing to notice is the slight modification of the name it refers to in press materials We can also note that, from now on, it is not a Corsa, however electric course Type name. The new drive generation update is known from several Stellantis models, such as the Corsa equivalent Peugeot e-208, or Opel’s other electric car, the Mokka Electric (formerly: Mokka-e).
The 100 kW electric motor from Vitesco Technologies was eliminated, and instead the 115 kW electric motor from the Stellantis-Nidec joint venture was installed in the Opel Corsa electric model. The 50 kWh battery has grown to 54 kWh with the new generation cells in the battery pack. The new 115 kW Corsa Electric motor can cover a range of up to 402 kilometers (measured on the WLTP cycle).
Interestingly, the 100 kW version is still available, and the 115 kW version can be ordered for a small surcharge. Opel is thus the first Stellantis brand to offer two electric motors for the e-CMP model. According to Opel, the 100kW version’s WLTP range has been extended to 357km, so this model should also come with a larger battery pack.
When previous Stellantis models were updated, only the drivetrain was mostly renewed, but in the case of the Corsa Electric, the exterior was also adapted to the current situation. For example, the renewal of the headlights and the Opel Vizor lift in the front bumper, instead of the radiator grille. As for the first lighting: Not only is the look new, but according to Opel, the glare-free Intelli-Lux LED Matrix has just gotten better and more refined, it now has 14 elements instead of eight addressable LEDs. Inside the new electric vehicle, Corsa could also offer an optional all-digital cockpit, a Qualcomm Snapdragon CockpitBuilt on a 10 inch touch screen available for entertainment. New seat styles and a new steering wheel design also appeared.
The revamped Corsa Electric will be available to order sometime in the summer and the first units will be delivered this year. There is no information on pricing yet.
