Electric cars: Opel Corsa-e test drive
Electric cars: Opel Corsa-e test drive
12. March 2020 From The Car Freak In Electric Cars, Hybrid
When driving in the electric future of Opel pushes the all-electric Corsa-e on the Pole Position and at the same time shows that electric mobility is in the cheaper regions of the car mobility is feasible. 28. March is the electric Corsa for the first time at the dealer.
At first glance, only the missing tailpipe emissions and the aerodynamically optimised wheels did not reveal the switch to the battery-electric drive, otherwise, the youngest Generation differs from the conventionally powered variants.
And also the interior is typical of the Corsa. Only the digital instruments show that there is no combustion provides the propulsion. After the star button is pressed, happens first, as with all E-Mobile nothing, until the first Occurs on the right Pedal demonstrated that E-Mobile have quite a bit of fun potential.
From the first Moment the maximum torque, in the specific case of 260 Newton-metres is available, and accelerated the small car quickly into the traffic. And at the traffic lights, the Corsa, with its acceleration of Zero, shows lights on a 50 km/h in 2.8 seconds, some of the supposedly more potent competitors in the back.
Of course, you should not demonstrate this Superiority, all too often, because that’s the range that is measured according to the measurement cycle, the WLTP, at 337 kilometers suffers.
Off the little realistic laboratory atmosphere, this value is likely to be depending on driving style (i. e., without fast traffic light take-offs) somewhere between 220 and 250 kilometres. The range can be achieved by the targeted use of the recuperation possibilities when you Delay the one or the other Kilometer to optimize.
After a short time of acclimatization, the Corsa e rolls out energy-recovering slowly in front of the red traffic light.
As a drive, the Opel developers chose a 136 HP (100 kW) electric motor that accelerates the five-seater to a maximum of 150 km/h. The power of a 50 kWh battery that can be charged by means of a Quick charge in about a half hour to 80 percent, and the floor of the car was placed, which in turn means a lower center of gravity and solid driving behavior contributes to provides.
As an electric vehicle, the Opel Corsa e is part of thanks to the fine work of the engineers, with its nearly 1.5 tons of the weights. The electric Corsa is prepared for all of the charging options, and if necessary, the Opel dealer gives the customer the best possible technical solution. These boxes, therefore, all required cables in addition to Wall.
As standard, the Corsa e has a single phase, a 7.4-kW Onboard charger. Of the features version Edition can be ordered as an Option a three-phase eleven kW distribution Perndant. In addition, a Fast-charging port on Board can be used with the appropriate loading stations with up to 100 kW/500 V For the battery Opel grants a warranty of eight years or 160,000 kilometres.
All of this is quite reassuring, if you e on Tour with the Corsa. The drive begins acoustically’t heard his service, and once in motion, nothing will change at the pleasant rest.
Obviously, the Opel not have been the engineers on the insulating material, so that the other E-Mobile audible road noise to disturb the driver and passengers. The chassis is a pleasant blend of cushioning and suspension is managed, so that the ailing road surfaces will not be reported to the occupant. Only short bumps make themselves felt.
The domain of the Corsa e, the city, and here he shows his Strengths. The straight 4,06 metres long, the small car with a reasonable turning circle of 10.74 meters, the nerve of the driver and pass now this character through the urban jungle and gentle to act. And if you want, you can play the dynamic driving values and to Express switch. Three drive settings, Eco (recommended), Normal, and Sport to choose from. More car you don’t actually need.
The Corsa-e costs in the basic version of Selection is 29.900 Euro. Thanks to the state support, the price is reduced to EUR 23,300. In the entry-level variant of the Opel is equipped with the Smallest quite generous.
To do this, pleasant things like automatic climate control, electric Parking brake, a Keyless start system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto compatible multimedia radio with a seven-inch colour screen and a fully digital Cockpit.
The Department of safety and security is present with a front collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane – keeping assistant, road sign detection, and intelligent speed controller and limiter. In addition to the basic version and the variants Edition (30.650€) and First Edition (32.900 Euro) are still in the program.
As an Option, the various versions can be equipped against surcharge with systems that are otherwise only available in higher segment. For this purpose, the adaptive and non-glare Matrix belongs, among other things, light, Opel, Corsa cars for the first time offering in the small segment.
By next year, the Opel will be an increase in electric fleet to eight models. These include the Transporter Vivaro-e, mocha X Combo Life and Cargo, as well as Zafira Life, and the Astra-successors belong to. And up to the year 2024, each model series will be electrified.
