Vauxhall is expanding its EV range further with the arrival of the new Combo-e Life, with prices and specifications for the new electric people carrier now confirmed.

Utilising the same powertrain as the firm’s electric Corsa-e and Mokka-e models, the Combo-e features a 100kW electric motor producing 134bhp and 260Nm of torque, along with a 50kWh battery that claims to allow for 174 miles of range. The MPV can also charge at up to 100kW, meaning a rapid charge to 80 per cent can take just 30 minutes.

Like the regular petrol and diesel Combo-e Life, it’s available in a Medium or XL length, which measure 4.4m and 4.75m long respectively. Medium versions are available with either five or seven seats, with XL models coming as standard with three rows. Due to the generous interior space, models offer up to 850 litres of boot space with five seats in place, or up to 2,963 litres with only the front seats in position.

The Combo-e Life will be available exclusively in an SE trim level, with prices starting from £31,610, which is inclusive of the government’s £2,500 grant towards EVs costing under £35,000.

As standard it comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, a reversing camera and cruise control, along with an eight-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Vauxhall Connect is also included, which allows owners to use a smartphone app to check their car remotely, and comes with an emergency e-call service. All Combo-e Life models also come with an eight-year battery warranty, eight years of roadside assistance and a six month BP Pulse charging membership.

Order books for the Combo-e Life are now open, with first deliveries expected in October.
