Electric power for

new Vauxhall Corsa

Vauxhall Corsa, 2019, IntelliLux headlights

VAUXHALL has confirmed the new Corsa will include an all-electric model in its line up when the car is launched later in 2019.

The fifth generation of one of Britain's most popular little cars will also be the first supermini to come with Vauxhall's IntelliLux LED headlamps first seen on the Astra and Insignia.

The company has just released a teaser image of the new model showing the glare-free matrix lighting system but little else.

With the lights on, approaching traffic and vehicles being followed are cut out of the illuminated area minimising glare.

As well as the electric powertrain, the new Corsa line up will also include more conventional internal combustion engines in the line up although diesel models have not been confirmed.

Stephen Norman, Vauxhall's group managing director, said: "As a British Brand since 1903, in fact, Britain's oldest car brand, Vauxhall has always been known for bringing cutting-edge technology to the mainstream, at an affordable price.

"With the all-new Corsa, we're doing it not once, but twice, by electrifying the UK's best-known supermini, and adding lighting technology normally only found in premium cars."

Since the first Corsa took to the road in 1993 as a replacement for the Nova Vauxhall has sold more than 2.1 million versions and the car regular features at towards the top of sales charts.

The electric Corsa will be one of two electrified models Vauxhall will be releasing this year with a plug-in hybrid version of the Grandland X SUV also scheduled to enter production.
