Vauxhall cuts pricing of Combo-e Life and Vivaro-e Life Combi models

Vauxhall Combo-e Life

Vauxhall has reduced prices for its Combo-e Life and Vivaro-e Life Combi models to qualify for the Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG).

The family lifestyle vehicles Combo Life and Vivaro Life will also go exclusively electric as part of Vauxhall’s drive to offer an electrified variant across its entire model line-up by 2024 and be fully electric by 2028.

The announcement comes as fellow Stellantis brands, Peugeot and Citroen, made similar announcements around not producing internal combustion engine (ICE) versions of certain models.

Peugeot has announced that its MPV range, which includes the Rifter and Traveller, will be available as electric-only in the UK

Meanwhile, Citroen is making passenger versions of Berlingo and SpaceTourer models electric-only in the UK. It has also cut pricing to qualify for the Government electric vehicle grant.

The Plug-In Car Grant (PiCG) was slashed and had its eligibility criteria changed In December.  

Within days of that announcement, Vauxhall announced price reductions across all Corsa-e and Mokka-e models, and has now done the same with the pricing of Combo-e Life and Vivaro-e Life Combi models.

Paul Willcox, managing director at Vauxhall, said: “Vauxhall has set out a clear ambition to go electric only by 2028 and this is another step on that journey.

“We are focused on ensuring that the benefits of going electric are available, and affordable, to as many British motorists as possible.”

All existing customer orders for Combo Life and Vivaro Life will be honoured and a limited number of certain third-party specialist conversions, such as Combo Life Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle, will continue.

The revised pricing on Combo-e Life and Vivaro-e Life Combi is in lieu of previous customer offers. 

The Vauxhall electrified passenger car line-up will comprise of eight models within the coming months: Corsa-e; Mokka-e; Grandland Plug-in Hybrid-e; Astra Plug-in Hybrid-e; Astra Sport Tourer Plug-in Hybrid-e (due 2022); Astra-e (due 2023); Combo-e Life; and Vivaro-e Life.
