Vauxhall has reaffirmed its dedication to electrification, promising eight electrified models by 2021. By 2024, the company says its entire range will be fully electric or hybrid-powered.

It’s the first time Vauxhall has talked strategy since the reveal of the new Corsa, which includes an electric version.

In addition to the Corsa-e and hybridised Grandland X SUV, Vauxhall is looking to release an all-electric variant of its Vivaro van in 2020.

Joining it will be an electric version of the next Mokka X crossover, presumably sharing many parts with the Corsa. Combo and Combo Life EVs will follow, along with an electric Vivaro Life in 2021.

Within three years, we can expect to see an electric Astra in Vauxhall’s line-up.

“We will electrify our entire product portfolio by 2024. Further models will follow very soon after we made the start with the Corsa-e and the Grandland X Hybrid4 this year,” said Vauxhall/Opel CEO, Michael Lohscheller.

“This product portfolio will put us in an excellent position to meet the ambitious future emission targets in Europe. Electro-mobility is an indispensable component in this. 

“But our ultra-modern and efficient combustion engines and research into fuel cells at the Rüsselsheim-based Centre of Competence will also make an important contribution to making our company sustainable and future-proof.”
