As was widely expected, the new Opel Corsa-e has the same drivetrain as the Peugeot 208-e.
Under the bonnet, the Corsa-e has an electric motor with 100kW of power and 260Nm of torque. Opel says the electric hatchback is capable of racing from 0-100km/h in 8.1 seconds.
Fitted with a 50kWh battery under the floor, the Corsa-e has an expected driving range of 330 kilometres using the WLTP cycle.
The new Corsa is based on the PSA Group's CMP architecture, which underpins the latest Peugeot 208. While the two vehicles share a lot under the skin, they have been styled to be as unique as possible.
Despite moving from the GM Fiat Small Platform, the new car is roughly the same size as the outgoing model. Overall length is said to be 4.06 metres, although the roof height has been reduced by 48mm to around 1431mm.
The Corsa-e comes standard with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment and navigation system, while upscale models feature a 10.0-inch unit.
Other available features include LED matrix headlights, adaptive speed and cruise control, blind spot assistance, traffic sign recognition, a customisable digital instrumentation screen, and parking assist.
Petrol and diesel versions of the new Corsa will also be available, but details have yet to be released.
It seems unlikely the brand and the Corsa will be reintroduced in the near future. The closely related next-generation Peugeot 208 is scheduled to go on sale in Australia during 2020, though.
