Vauxhall has revealed the new Combo-e Life, a fully electric variant of its Combo Live van-derived people carrier.
Available in five and seven seat configurations, the Combo-e Life provides a range of up to 174 miles (WLTP) and supports up to 100kW rapid charging, with an 80% charge taking 30 minutes.
Two sizes are offered: Medium and XL. Medium variants measure 4.40m long and are available in five or seven-seat configurations. Larger XL variants measure 4.75m long and are exclusively offered with seven seats.
Medium variants with five seats feature up to 597 litres of boot space, extending up to 2,126 litres of space with the rear row folded. XL variants come with 850 litres of space, and up to 2,693 litres with the rear rows folded.
The front passenger seat can be fully folded, extending the length of the load area so that larger items can be carried inside the vehicle.
The new Combo-e Life is also rated to tow up to 750kg and comes with trailer stability technology that reduces vehicle speed when it detects the trailer swerving.
A 50kWh lithium-ion battery and a 136PS electric motor, with up to 260Nm of torque, enables the Combo-e Life to accelerate from 0-60mph in 11.2 seconds.
Drivers have access to a two-mode regenerative braking system, with ‘B’ mode increasing the regenerative braking for maximum energy recovery.
All models come standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, and are available with Vauxhall’s Multimedia Navi Pro system featuring an eight-inch touchscreen.
Pricing will be announced when the new model arrives in showrooms this Autumn.
