Vauxhall has showed the first images of the new all-electric Astra.
Designed by a team led by British Design Vice-President Mark Adams, the next generation Astra will be available as a dynamic five-door hatchback and versatile Sports Tourer estate, continuing Vauxhall’s expansion of its electric portfolio.
The images reveal the extreme precision and high attention to detail of the awaited all-new model, which newly interprets the brand’s pure and bold design philosophy and shows the way forward for its up-coming passenger cars, according to Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Vauxhall.
“The All-New Astra will open an exciting new chapter in the 41-year history of our popular compact model,” he said. “We are confident that the next generation Vauxhall Astra will make a powerful impression and attract new customers to the brand, especially now Astra will be electrified for the first time.”
The central exterior design element is a further development of the Vauxhall Vizor first seen on the All-New Mokka. As WhichEV reported, the Mokka-e features a 50kWh lithium-ion battery and a 100kW (136hp) electric motor with 260Nm of torque as standard.
The face of the brand stretches across the front, seamlessly integrating technologies such as the ultra-slim IntelliLux LED headlamps that will once again bring cutting-edge innovation to the compact market segment.
The next generation Pure Panel digital cockpit with fully glazed surfaces echoes the seamless integration of the Vauxhall Vizor with two widescreen displays delivering detoxed information in a horizontal driver-oriented format. Physical controls are reduced to the core functions in the form of finely crafted keys.
