Introducing the Vauxhall Combo-e Life
The Vauxhall Combo-e Life is a fully electric MPV, designed to take the stress out of everyday life.
Offering all the space, practicality and ease of drive that's well recognised in the conventionally-powered Combo Life, the Combo-e Life takes all of the best MPV traits you can think of and electrifies them to great effect.
Like the original version, the Combo-e Life is available in two bodystyles, 5-seat M and 7-seat XL. There aren't too many 7-seater EVs on the market currently, so the Combo-e Life stands out.
With a strong zero-emissions range, a comprehensive list of standard equipment and remarkably low running costs, this could well be the perfect everyday family car.
Range and Performance
Combo-e Life has an electric driving range of up to 171 miles, according to WLTP testing. This is far more than the average daily distance travelled by the vast majority of the UK population, and you can top up the range overnight.
Drivers can maximise the range of the Combo-e Life by using the two-stage regenerative braking function, which Vauxhall calls 'B-mode'.
Performance comes from a 100kW (equivalent to 134bhp) motor, which also produces a healthy 192lb-ft of torque, resulting in a 0 to 62mph acceleration time of 11.2 seconds. This is faster than the petrol and entry-level diesel models in the range.
Combo-e Life is also adept at towing, with a maximum towing weight of 750kg, enough for a reasonably-sized trailer.
Pleasingly, the Combo-e Life is compatible with 100kW rapid charging, meaning you can make use of the rapid chargers that are widely available at motorway service stations. These allow the Combo-e Life to go from empty to full in just 30 minutes.
Home charging is available as well, via the standard-fit 7.4kW on-board charger or the optional three-phase 11kW charger, both of which require a Wallbox to work effectively.
If you don't have access to a Wallbox, you can always charge using a standard three-pin domestic socket, but this will take significantly longer.
