Vauxhall has announced pricing and specification for the Combo Life Electric and Vivaro Life Electric. The passenger vehicles are ideal for leisure, long-distance travel or as shuttle vehicles.

James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “The New Combo Life Electric is designed for busy families and active lifestyles, with space and comfort for up to seven, combined with practical and innovative safety features – it’s the perfect do-anything vehicle. Meanwhile, with its flexible passenger space accommodating up to nine adult-sized seats, the Vivaro Life Electric comes into its own whether it’s providing a shuttle service, luxury VIP travel, or comfortable transport for the whole family.”

In line with Vauxhall’s strategy to offer a fully electric version of every model in its line-up by the end of this year, both models are available with efficient electric powertrains, creating a quiet and refined experience for all occupants.

The two Vauxhall newcomers immediately make a statement with a redesigned front end. Both vehicles now feature the bold and pure Vauxhall Vizor for the first time, with the Vauxhall Griffin logo in the centre. Inside, both models have a fully digital cockpit and the driver and front passenger benefit from intuitive infotainment systems with 10-inch colour touchscreens based on the Snapdragon® Cockpit platform from Qualcomm Technologies.

Combo Life Electric

The Vauxhall Combo Life Electric combines new technologies, connectivity solutions and comfort details to create the ideal family vehicle. The Combo Life Electric is available in two lengths. The standard version offers space for up to five people with three individual seats in the second row providing drivers with additional flexibility and customisation. The Combo Life Electric XL can accommodate up to seven passengers seated across three rows, with two individual split-folding and removable third-row seats, and a sliding facility for its third-row seats, ideal for passenger comfort.

Depending on the seating configuration, the new Combo Life offers between 597 and 2,693 litres of load volume. The unique access option to the cargo area via the separately opening window in the tailgate and the horizontally foldable passenger seat backrest are particularly practical when loading the vehicle.

The fully electric Combo Life Electric is equipped with a 52kWh battery, which is located underfloor. It can travel up to 199 miles (WLTP) on a single charge – approximately 25 miles (14 per cent) more than the previous model, thanks to development of the fully electric drivetrain and the highly efficient optional heat pump, which helps to conserve battery range in low temperatures. With 100kW (DC) rapid charging capability, the battery can be recharged to 80 per cent of its capacity in around 30 minutes at a suitable public charging station. Drivers have the option to select Eco, Normal and Power driving modes. The Combo Life Electric also has regenerative braking to ensure energy-efficient driving, which can easily be adjusted using paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.

Safety is a top priority for Vauxhall and the new Combo Life Electric offers up to 18 state-of-the-art driver assistance systems. This includes Intelli-Grip with hill descent control, sensors at the front and rear as well as flank guard. For the first time in its history, the Combo Life Electric comes with adaptive, glare-free IntelliLux LED® Matrix headlights. A total of 14 LED elements – seven on each side – ensure that the road is optimally illuminated in the dark without glaring other road users and have been proven to improve the amount of time drivers have to react.

The IntelliLux LED® Pixel Matrix lights allow a vehicle to detect an object 30 to 40 metres earlier than with conventional halogen or HID systems when travelling at 50mph. This gives the driver between 1.3 and 1.8 seconds more time to react.

The Vauxhall Combo Life Electric is available in two trim levels, Design and Ultimate. Combo Life Electric Design is packed with plenty of useful features as standard, including a multimedia audio system with a 10-inch HD touchscreen, Mirror Screen, 4G connectivity, voice control and Vauxhall Connect.

Combo Life Electric Ultimate adds the Multimedia Navi Pro infotainment system, a panoramic rear-view camera, a heated leather steering wheel and dual-zone electronic climate control. Ultimate trim also features black gloss side-protection mouldings, black painted door mirrors and 16-inch alloy wheels.
