Vauxhall introduces 48-hour test drive programme on Corsa-e

Vauxhall Corsa-e

Vauxhall is offering potential buyers a 48-hour test drive in the all-electric Corsa-e hatchback at its franchised car dealerships across the UK.

The ‘Switch it up’ test drive campaign offers runs until November 1 and gives potential buyers two full days to experience the PSA Group-owned brand's debut electric vehicle (EV).

Vauxhall said the extended test-drive will help potential first-time EV buyers.

Test drives have been identified as key in car retailers' efforts to sell EVs, with Hyundai recently launching a dedicated 10-day event and Geely's Polestar brand being quickly overwhelmed by interest in its Polestar 2 test drive tour.

Vauxhall's Corsa-e is powered by a 50kWh battery and comes with a zero-emissions range of up to 209 miles from a single charge and supports up to 100kW rapid charging technology – allowing for an 80% charge in as little as 30 minutes.

The Corsa-e is priced from £27,655 OTR after the Plug-in Car Grant.

Vauxhall said it offers a free six-month subscription to the Polar public charging network with the Corsa-e and offers buyers a PCH rental at £275 with an advance of £2,200.
