We’re all aware of the benefits of zero-emission EV engines; classing them in lower tax brackets, avoiding clean air congestion charges, and eliminating smog pollution… But did you know they also provide instantaneous torque directly to the wheels? This means they outperform regular cars in some cases due to a faster, more linear acceleration. Additionally, the long-term running and maintenance costs are fractional due to their fewer moving parts, cheap recharging, and quieter system. It’s easy to spot a charging point near you because EV infrastructure is quickly growing from accessible to abundant. Electric cars today are ready for the future, and in a few simple steps you can be too.
Future-proof EVs that save your wallet sound great, right? But deciding between the Corsa and Mokka Electric will be ultimately down to you. While both show off everything we’d expect in a modern EV, they also have their own tailored features and designs which will turn your head. Before you pick your car, check out what makes them so loved below!
With the super-modern Corsa Electric, the same style that made drivers fall in love remains planted, while an overhauled powertrain refreshes the already nippy and well-handled car. The ‘Sport’ driving mode shows off a 0-60mph in just 7.6 seconds with its instant 260Nm of torque, while the ‘Eco’ driving mode boasts up to 209 miles of range on a single charge. Pair this with a 30-minute charging time of up to 80% and you will find your charging breaks to be rare and quick as you go about your daily driving in confidence.
The Mokka Electric takes a tasteful family SUV and gives it an electrified reboot with your needs prioritised. A single charge can take you and your passengers up to 209 miles, requiring only 30 minutes of fast charging. Easy. The driver information display in the Mokka illustrates the latest connective services like Apple CarPlay for everyone on board, as well as electric info such as your current range so you can drive smarter. 310 litres of boot space sure help with luggage, but maybe it’s the ultra-low running costs or the excellent ride quality that’ll turn you into a fan… there’s only one way to find out!
Range based on WLTP, everyday use may differ and is dependent on various factors. In particular: personal driving style, route characteristics, exterior temperature, heating/air conditioning, pre-conditioning and battery condition.
