Electric becomes mainstream with Vauxhall Astra and Astra Sports Tourer EVs

Astra Sports Tourer Electric Vauxhall

The Vauxhall Corsa went electric in 2020, followed by the Mokka in 2021, but we’ve still not had an all-electric Astra, however this will be remedied in 2023.

By June of next year you’ll be able to take delivery of the Astra Electric hatchback, and the Astra Sports Tourer Electric will be on our roads later in the year. There still aren’t that many all-electric estate cars on sale, so the Astra will be a welcome addition, especially with its 516-litre boot, or 1,553 litres with the rear seats folded.

Stellantis’ new 54kWh battery will be fitted – which is slightly larger than the previous 50kWh battery – giving an electric driving range of 258 miles (WLTP figure). The Astra will also feature the brand’s normal maximum rapid charging rate of 100kW, which could potentially provide an 80% charge in 30 minutes.

Vauxhall Astra Electric and Astra Sports Tourer Electric

All Astra Electric models will come with a three-phase 11kW AC onboard charger as standard, meaning that it can take full advantage of workplace charging, which is faster than a domestic wallbox.

The Astra’s dashboard features a head-up display unit, a 10-inch digital instrument cluster, and a 10-inch central display, with physical buttons retained for climate controls.

The new Astra Electric is available with Vauxhall’s IntelliLux LED Pixel Light technology which features 84 individual LED elements per headlight to provide adaptive lighting based on the conditions.

Ordering for the new Astra Electric will open in early 2023, with ordering for the Astra Sports Tourer Electric opening in summer 2023. UK pricing and specification are yet to be announced.

 

The arrival of the new Astra Electric and Astra Sports Tourer Electric will increase the number of fully electric Vauxhall passenger vehicles on sale to six (the two electric Astra models will join the Vauxhall Corsa-e, Vauxhall Mokka-e, Vauxhall Combo Life Electric and Vauxhall Vivaro Life Electric).

By 2028, Vauxhall has committed to being an electric-only manufacturer, a timeline that’s seven years ahead of the UK Government target of 2035.
