The sixth-generation Opel Corsa E arrives packing a 134hp and 260Nm electric powertrain that offers 205-mile range approximately. Versions of the new model with gasoline and diesel-fueled engines arrive later.
The electric powertrain includes a 50-kW-hour battery. There are three driving modes: Normal, Eco for maximizing the range, and Sport for better throttle response.

The sixth-gen Opel Corsa looks similar to the current one but with sharper lines and a lighter body. The vehicle also gains available adaptive LED headlights, too. The new model’s length remains the same 4.06 meters, but Opel reports the roofline is 48mm lower than before. Need not to worry about headroom because the driver sits 28mm lower, too.
On the inside, the new Corsa comes standard with a seven-inch infotainment screen but a 10-inch unit is optional. The available Opel Connect telematics service adds features like real-time traffic info to the tech.
