Vauxhall has announced that it will extend its offer of a free home charger and 30,000 free green miles of electricity, in partnership with British Gas, to all of its electric models.
Originally available on the UK’s best-selling electric supermini, the Vauxhall Corsa-e, the offer is now also available on the all-electric Mokka-e, Combo-e Life and Vivaro-e Life.
The offer gives access to an exclusive British Gas tariff, with Vauxhall crediting each customer’s account to cover the cost of charging for the equivalent of 30,000 miles over a three-year period.
The tariff is fixed price until 31st August 2024 and includes an off-peak rate with lower-priced electricity between 12:00am and 05:00am, making it cheaper for Vauxhall customers to charge their car overnight.
Customers with private off-street parking can also benefit from a free Home Charging Unit in the form of a Wallbox “Pulsar Plus”, which will be installed by a qualified British Gas engineer.
Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Vauxhall has explained that this initiative is meant to attract even more customers to switch and speed up the all-electric revolution.
“Our partnership with British Gas has motivated many to make the switch to an electric vehicle and has helped ensure the all-electric Corsa-e is one of the UK’s most popular new electric cars,” he said. “We’re very happy to announce that our offer of 30,000 free miles of electricity has now been extended to a number of other Vauxhall models, making the switch to an electric vehicle even more appealing. By 2028, Vauxhall will offer a fully electric variant across its entire model range.”
The full list of eligible models includes the Corsa-e SRi Nav Premium, Mokka-e SRi Nav Premium, Combo-e Life SE XL and Vivaro-e Life Elite. All eligible models support up to 100kW rapid charging, allowing for an 80 per cent charge in as little as 30 minutes.
Powered by 50kWh lithium-ion batteries, the Corsa-e and Mokka-e come with zero-emission ranges of up to 209 and 201 miles respectively (WLTP). For those in need of greater space, the Combo-e Life is available in two sizes, a Medium and a longer XL variant, with up to seven seats and a range of 174 miles. The Vivaro-e Life provides executive travel for up to nine, with a 143-mile range (WLTP).
In addition to this limited-time offer, all Vauxhall electric car buyers enjoy a free, six-month subscription to the bp pulse public charging network – giving them access to more than 8,000 public charging points. All Vauxhall electric vehicles are also covered by an eight-year battery warranty and eight year’s roadside assistance, giving owners peace of mind wherever they drive.
