Vauxhall has introduced a new Griffin grade to its popular electric Corsa-e supermini and Crossland SUV, offering buyers additional standard equipment at an affordable price.

The grade, which can already be found on the regular Corsa, Astra and Grandland X, is named after Vauxhall’s historic badge, and also offers revised styling to the lower-spec trims it’s based on.

Starting with the Corsa-e, it comes with 17-inch bi-colour alloy wheels, a black roof, tinted rear windows and LED front fog lights in terms of styling changes. The trim also builds on the standard SE Nav Premium trim with its reversing camera, heated front seats and keyless start. Prices for the Corsa-e Griffin start from £26,390, inclusive of the government’s plug-in car grant.

The Corsa-e is underpinned by a 134bhp electric motor and 50kWh battery, which enables a claimed electric range of 209 miles, while 100kW rapid charging capability means its battery can be charged to 80 per cent in just 30 minutes. Vauxhall is also giving customers a free wallbox to charge at home through a partnership with British Gas, as well as enough free credits to cover 30,000 miles of electricity.

Vauxhall’s recently updated Crossland is also now available in this Griffin grade, which builds on the SE model with its black 17-inch alloy wheels, reversing camera, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. You can choose the Crossland Griffin with a choice of 1.2-litre petrol engines and a 1.5-litre diesel, with prices starting from £17,555.
