Vauxhall is partnering with British Gas to offer new Corsa-e electric car customers a free home charging unit and 30,000 miles (48,200km) of free electricity. The offer gives access to an exclusive British Gas Dual Fuel Tariff with Vauxhall crediting each customer’s account to cover the cost of charging for the equivalent of 30,000 miles (48,200km) over a three-year period.
Running an equivalent Corsa 1.2 100PS petrol model for 30,000 miles (48,200km) would cost £2,900 at today’s petrol prices. The limited-time offer is available on customer orders from December 8, 2020 to January 11, 2021.
The offer is available on personal contract hire purchases whilst stocks last. Prices for the Corsa-e with the free home charging unit and 30,000 miles worth of electricity start from just £330 per month with a £1,980 initial rental fee.
As part of the offer, Corsa-e customers also receive a free six-month subscription to the bp pulse public charging network, which was formerly known as the Polar network. This is the UK’s largest public charging network with more than 7,000 charging points nationwide.
The zero-emission Corsa-e comes with a 50kWh lithium-ion battery that has a range of up to 209 miles (336km) from a single charge. It supports up to 100kW rapid charging technology allowing for an 80 percent charge in as little as 30 minutes. The new Corsa-e also comes with an eight-year warranty on the 50kWh battery and eight years’ roadside assistance.
