The all-new electric Frontera brings Vauxhall one decisive step closer to an all-electric range
Vauxhall reveals plans for an all-new electric SUV with a familiar moniker – Frontera. This move progresses Vauxhall’s commitment to emobility, signalling a decisive step toward a fully electric future.
The Frontera will be a distinctive and utilitarian vehicle. The goal is to present a fresh and rugged take on Vauxhall’s established design philosophy. As such, Vauxhall positions the Frontera directly in the market’s core.
Vauxhall designed the Frontera with the overarching vision of a fully electric lineup. This and the next-generation Grandland will be available by the end of 2024. This is a huge step towards Vauxhall’s goal of providing a fully electric version of every model in the range.
James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, commented:
“The name ‘Frontera’ is ideally suited to our exciting new SUV model. It will have a confident character and be positioned right in the core of the market.”
The Frontera’s debut as a battery-electric variant seamlessly dovetails with Vauxhall’s broader strategy. It joins an existing cadre of fully electric models. These include the Corsa Electric, Mokka Electric, Astra Electric, Astra Sports Tourer Electric, and the Combo Life Electric. Notably, Vauxhall’s commitment extends even to its commercial vehicle portfolio. It features battery-electric options like the New Combo Electric, New Vivaro Electric, and New Movano Electric.
This announcement positions Vauxhall at the forefront of the EV revolution. The impending release of the Frontera and the upcoming all-electric Vauxhall range marks the manufacturer’s significant role in the future automotive landscape. This sentiment is echoed across the industry as manufacturers rapidly electrify to stake their claim on the future.
