Remember the Vauxhall Corsa Electric? Probably one of the most approachable little electric cars ever made, but one that also managed to be … how to say this politely?… a bit dull.

Luckily, it seems like someone at Vauxhall has been listening, so now we have this… the NEW Vauxhall Corsa Electric. A bit more grown-up looks-wise, and definitely more modern. It’s had a bit of a hardware upgrade too and can go further on a charge.

One of the things we complained about with the Corsa Electric was that although it was based on the same bits as the Peugeot e-208, it ended up looking like the frumpy sibling. In now looks more like the rest of Vauxhall’s range now, mainly thanks to this ‘Vizor’ front end that we’ve already seen on the Mokka and Astra. It’s sharper, neater and more modern, and still a small, five-door hatchback.

The rest is pretty much as it was before, although the badges on the back have moved into the middle of the car and all the chrome bits – including the badges – have turned black. There’s also a shark-fin antenna up here, and black 17-inch wheels.

The battery has grown from 46.6kWh to 48.1, enough to jump the WLTP range from 222miles to 255, a 15% increase. Which doesn’t sound like that much, right up until you need to get home without stopping… and it’s 30 miles away…
