Vauxhall offering ‘free electricity’ to Corsa-e customers

Vauxhall Corsa-e
Vauxhall is offering new Corsa-e customers a free Home Charging Unit and 30,000 miles of free electricity for a limited time, in partnership with British Gas.

The offer gives access to an exclusive British Gas Dual Fuel Tariff, with Vauxhall crediting each customer’s account to cover the cost of charging for the equivalent of 30,000 miles over a three-year period. Running an equivalent Corsa 1.2 100PS petrol model for 30,000 miles would cost £2,900 at today’s petrol prices, claims Vauxhall. The limited-time offer is available on customer orders from 8th December 2020 to 11th January 2021.

The offer is available on Personal Contract Hire purchases, whilst stocks last, with prices for the award-winning Corsa-e with the free Home Charging Unit and 30,000 miles worth of electricity starting from just £330 per month with a £1,980 initial rental fee.

As part of the offer, Corsa-e customers will also receive a free six-month subscription to the Polar public charging network, the UK’s largest public charging network, with more than 7,000 charging points nationwide.

Powered by a 50kWh lithium-ion battery, the Corsa-e comes with a zero-emissions range of up to 209 miles from a single charge and supports up to 100kW rapid charging technology – allowing for an 80 per cent charge in as little as 30 minutes, claims Vauxhall.

The new Corsa-e also comes with an eight-year warranty on the 50kWh battery as well as eight years’ roadside assistance, giving owners peace of mind wherever they drive.
