Opening the next chapter of its comprehensive electrification offensive, Vauxhall will focus entirely on full battery electric vehicles from 2028.
Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Vauxhall Motors, commented: “As of 2028, Vauxhall will only offer fully electric cars and vans in the UK. The future of the automotive industry is electric – and Vauxhall will lead that in this country. We are on a journey to reinvent Vauxhall and heading towards a net zero CO2 future – CO2 is the new currency in our industry.”
Vauxhall currently offers nine electric or electrified cars and vans including the Corsa-e, Mokka-e, Grandland PHEV (Plug-in-Hybrid), Combo-e, Combo-e Life, Vivaro-e, Vivaro-e Life and Movano-e.
Within the first six months of this year, the Corsa-e has proved itself to be the bestselling battery electric supermini, whilst Vauxhall itself is the UK’s number one electric van manufacturer.
Vauxhall will offer fully electric vans across its range by the end of 2021 and including the car range, the entire Vauxhall portfolio will offer electrified versions by 2024 and then move to fully electric in 2028.
The move to become all-electric follows an earlier announcement that the Ellesmere Port Plant in Cheshire will become the first Stellantis plant to produce solely electric vehicles when the Combo-e LCV and passenger version go into production at the historic site at the end of next year.
