In the UK, Stellantis brand Vauxhall has lowered its prices for its all-electric Corsa-e and Mokka-e models. The move comes in the wake of the UK government lowering its electric car subsidies.
In light of the recent changes to the UK Government’s Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG), those wanting to purchase the Corsa-e and Mokka-e models will have the benifit of a £3,000 reduction across all Corsa-e and Mokka-e-versions, effective immediately.
The Corsa-e now starts from £25,805 after the PiCG and the Mokka-e now starts from £29,365 after PiCG. Here, Stellantis has made sure that the lowest price Corsa-e, the SE variant, keeps its earlier price once subsidies have been added while SRi and Elite variants, prices will even be lower than they were before. In the case of the Mokke-e, all of the new prices after the new subsidy levels will be below what they were previously. In the case of the Mokka-e Ultimate version, the price £2000 lower than it used to be after subsidies, so that those purchasing the vehicle will actually be paying considerably less than before despite the lower government subsidies.
Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “In light of a further evolution to the Government Plug-in Car Grant, we have taken the decision to change our pricing policy on our all-electric Corsa-e and Mokka-e models.” He explained: “With more attainable pricing from significant reductions on both models, as well as the grant, we hope to put zero-emissions-in-use motoring within the reach of even more British motorists.”
Just last month after the Vauxhall / Opel electric models Corsa-e and Mokka-e also got a range upgrade. According to Stellantis, the WLTP range of Opel’s electric cars has increased up to 359 kilometres (Corsa-e) and 338 kilometres (Mokka-e).
