The Combo-e Life features a 50kWh lithium-ion battery and a 100kW (136PS) electric motor producing 260Nm of torque and is capable of up to 174 miles WLTP range from a single charge. The family-sized passenger van supports up to 100kW rapid charging, so an 80% charge takes just 30 minutes.
All Combo-e Life variants come as standard with a single-phase 7.4kW on-board charger, with an optional three-phase 11kW charger also available.
The Vauxhall is available exclusively in SE trim, and in two sizes: a Medium and a longer XL variant. Medium models can be specified in either five- or seven-seat configurations, while XL vehicles are offered exclusively with seven seats.
All SE models come as standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, nearside and offside sliding side-access doors, LED daytime running lights with high-beam assist, a panoramic rear-view camera and automatic windscreen wipers.
Inside, all models are fitted with Vauxhall’s Multimedia system with an eight-inch colour touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also included is Vauxhall Connect, which allows drivers to access vehicle information and charge status as well as live traffic updates when on the move.
The Combo-e Life comes standard with a high level of safety and driver assist features, including rear parking sensors and the aforementioned panoramic rear-view camera, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, cruise control with speed limited and speed sign recognition.
Medium variants measure 4.40 metres long and are available in five- or seven-seat configurations, while larger XL variants measure 4.75 metres long and are exclusively offered with seven seats.
Medium variants with five seats feature up to 597 litres of boot space, extending up to 2,126 litres of space with the rear row folded, while XL variants come with 850 litres of space, and up to 2,693 litres with the rear rows folded.
For improved versatility, the new Combo-e Life is also rated to tow up to 750kg and comes with trailer stability technology that reduces vehicle speed when it detects the trailer swerving.
