Pricing announced for Opel Corsa-e

Michael Lohscheller, Opel Corsa-e (2019)

Opel has finally announced the pricing for its electric supermini, the Corsa-e. It’s exactly what was expected, no good or bad surprise in here.

 

Let’s see the highlights of the press release.

  • Sixth-generation Corsa: with electric driving range up to 330 kilometres (WLTP)2
  • Attractive leasing rates in Germany: “First Edition” from €299 / month
  • Order now: top-equipped “First Edition” available for €32,900 Euro
  • Powerful: 100kW (136hp) in every Corsa-e
  • Active safety: systems include adaptive speed assistance
  • Bright idea: IntelliLux LED® matrix light for first time in small car segment

 

Here are the prices (RRP incl. VAT in Germany):

  • Entry-level variant: 29.900 euros
  • Mid-level variant: 30.650 euros
  • High-level variant: 32.900 euros

 

“It is no coincidence that our first pure electric model of the new generation is a Corsa, our most popular nameplate and one of the bestselling cars in Europe”, Michael Lohscheller told the journalists. “The Corsa-e not only makes electric mobility more practical and convenient, but also more accessible.”

With a compact length of 4.06 metres, the sporty, 100kW (136hp) Corsa-e offers advanced technologies and an all-electric range of up to 330 kilometres (WLTP1). The Corsa-e is an electric car for everyone and ideal for every-day use.

 

As we can see in the table below, in Europe superminis remain very popular, so it’s always nice to see more electric cars in this segment.

It will be interesting to see how well the Opel Corsa-e and the PEUGEOT e-208 will sell compared to their gas counterparts, which are currently sold for half the price.

The Opel Corsa-e will be available from Spring 2020.

 

Thanks Lars for the heads up.

  1. mid level variant is the same as base level variant with a 11kw charger instead of 7.6.

    Much too expensive for a supermini on a petrol engine platform.

    1. I also think it’s overpriced, but all electric cars from legacy automakers are, unfortunately.

      1. true, but where can I buy a comparable car (with a comparable battery) for less? Here (Switzerland), the cheapest version of a model 3 is 42’000 € (SR+ with zero options). The ion starts at 20’000€, but I would’nt really see that as a comparable car (especially considering the battery).

      2. Too expensive, I agree. Let’s just wait for the vw ID3 that, for 30k euros and a 48KWh battery, seems to be a lot better value IMHO.

  2. All fine and dandy. You see, VW has been quite successful marketing the ID. They have given us this idea that the ID is the new Golf. Now, maybe they pull a Tesla and give us, what’s it called? A modern and minimalist interior? My bicycle also has a modern and minimalist interior with my smartphone there on the handlebar. To the point. To be honest, I think VW will do exactly that, a not so quite a Golf, a quite a few corners were cut Golf. Doesn’t matter. They have indeed successfully pushed this idea the ID is the Golf’s successor. For 29,999999k. Now, this is a Opel… Corsa… for 29,999999k

  3. This e-corsa seems to have 45kwh usable. Not 50kwh announced. It is the relation i suposse fro. Zoe 300km-41kwh data in wltp.
    Is there an wltp2?

  4. This Corsa pricing is awesome!
    No need to wait for any EV from the VW-concern as we all know that VW basic pricing needs about plus 20-30% to get a car with equal equipment like other EU carmakers.
