Vauxhall Astra Electric 2

New Vauxhall Astra Electric and Astra Sports Tourer Electric revealed 

The new Astra Electric joins the line-up of electric Vauxhall models, with the Astra Sports Tourer the first fully electric estate from the brand and one of just a handful available on the EV market.

This increases the number of fully electric Vauxhall passenger vehicles on sale to six. And by 2028, Vauxhall has committed to being an electric-only manufacturer.

James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, commented: “The Astra going electric is a big milestone for both our popular family car as well as for the Vauxhall brand as we move towards our commitment of only offering fully electric cars and vans from 2028.  Astra Electric and Astra Sports Tourer Electric will offer everyday practicality, comfort and locally emission-free driving pleasure combined with the innovative technology and bold and pure design language that Vauxhall is known for.”

Both of the new Astras feature the same, fully electric powertrain powered by a 114kW (156hp) electric motor producing 270Nm of torque, and a 54kWh battery, delivering a range of 258 miles from a single charge and a top speed of 105mph.

The Astra Electric requires just 12.7kWh of electricity to cover 62 miles (100km), making it ideal for daily use, and drivers can choose between three driving modes; Eco, Normal, and Sport. It supports up to 100kW DC rapid charging, with an 80% charge taking just 30 minutes to complete.

Order books will open in early 2023 with deliveries anticipated from June 2023 onwards. UK pricing is yet to be confirmed.
