Vauxhall is supplying new all-electric Corsa-e and Mokka-e models to its Electric Vehicle Experience Centre in Milton Keynes to help educate and inform the public about the ongoing benefits of going electric.
The centre offers visitors the chance to test drive a range of electric and plug-in cars and contains experts who can assist with any questions about EVs.
It is the only centre of its type in Europe, has 50,000 customer visitors per year and conducts 24,000 test drives a year.
Corsa-e features a 50kWh battery connected to a 100kW (136PS) electric motor, and is capable of up to 209 miles from a single charge. Supporting up to 100kW rapid charging, an 80% charge takes 30 minutes.
The Mokka-e features a 50kWh battery and 100kw (136PS) electric motor to produce 260Nm of torque. It can drive up to 201 miles on a single charge and supports up to 100kW rapid charging, with an 80% charge also taking 30 minutes.
Natalie Reay, EV Experience Centre manager, said, “We’re very excited to add the new Corsa-e and Mokka-e to our fleet of vehicles. With our centre now back open, we are looking forward to welcoming customers behind the wheel of our new electric vehicles.”
Paul Willcox, managing director, Vauxhall, added: “The Electric Vehicle Experience Centre is a fantastic initiative to help educate British consumers about the benefits of switching to electric. Vauxhall has a range of affordable all-electric cars and vans and we are looking forward to be able to offer visitors to the centre test drives in both Corsa-e and Mokka-e.”
