EXPERIENCE ELECTRIC DRIVING WITH VAUXHALL

With the recent rush to electric vehicles and the government setting a deadline of 2030 for end of new petrol and diesels sales, it's time to understand what is it like to be an electric driver.

On the page below, we have attempted to answer those questions and during the month of September are offering a 24 hour test drive of our all-electric models.

What are electric vehicles like to drive?

The best way to find out is to drive one! But we can give you an idea.

Most first-timers find the experience a pleasant surprise. They often mention the simple, familiar controls, powerful acceleration, better traction, and a quieter ride.

Most of the controls are familiar, which makes things easy. There’s no clutch pedal or gearstick because all electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid (PHEVs) are automatic. So just press the start button, select ‘D’ for drive, release the parking brake and you’re off.

As a new EV driver, you may notice how fast it can accelerate. An electric motor delivers all of its power as soon as you press the accelerator pedal, so it feels faster than many sports cars up to 30mph.

Is it easy to charge an electric vehicle?

It can be as easy as plugging in your phone or laptop. All you need is a domestic socket. However, for maximum speed, convenience and safety, we recommend you have a dedicated home wallbox installed.


Away from home, you can choose from two types of charging: AC or DC.

  • AC is the same charging method you might use with your home wallbox. These units are found in places where you’ll be parked longer – train stations, shopping centres, office buildings and so on.
  • DC or rapid-charging units are usually found in service stations or near supermarkets, restaurants and the like. They can charge a Vauxhall at up to 100kW – much faster than AC units – so you can use DC to top up your batteries on longer journeys.

What will owning an electric car do to my electricity bill?

If you use your electric vehicle (EV) regularly, it’s true your energy bill will rise. However, you’ll never need to use a petrol station again – so that cost will disappear. What’s more, the electricity for your EV will cost about a quarter of your previous fuel bills.

How do I charge away from home?

Many owners charge mostly at home or at work. You park your car while you sleep or get on with your day, then return to find your battery topped up.

But for longer journeys, you may want extra power to extend your range. If so, just use your VauxhallConnect app to find charging points along your route. Then choose one that offers the type of connection you want.

From 1 September to 30 September 2021, you can take a shiny Corsa-e, Mokka-e or Vivaro-e for an 24 hour test drive. Share a few details below and we’ll get back to you.
