Vauxhall to go all-electric by 2028

Vauxhall is the latest vehicle manufacturer to announce its intentions to go ‘electric only’.

From 2028, Vauxhall will focus entirely on full battery electric vehicles.

Paul Willcox, managing director at Vauxhall Motors said: “As of 2028, Vauxhall will only offer fully electric cars and vans in the UK.

“The future of the automotive industry is electric – and Vauxhall will lead that in this country.

“We are on a journey to reinvent Vauxhall and heading towards a net zero CO2 future – CO2 is the new currency in our industry.”

At the Stellantis EV Day 2021, it was announced that a new, all-electric car – a modern day version of the Opel Manta – will be introduced mid-decade following on from the positive public reception to the Manta GSe ElektroMOD restomod concept.

Vauxhall currently offers nine electric or electrified cars and vans with the Corsa-e, Mokka-e, Grandland PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid), Combo-e, Combo-e Life, Vivaro-e, Vivaro-e Life and Movano-e.

With the introduction of the all-electric Combo-e and Movano-e LCVs, Vauxhall will offer fully electric vans across its range by the end of 2021.

Including the car range, the entire Vauxhall portfolio will offer electrified versions by 2024 and then move to fully electric in 2028.

This move to being all-electric follows the announcement earlier this week that the Ellesmere Port plant in Cheshire will become the first Stellantis plant to produce solely electric vehicles when the Combo-e LCV and passenger version (together with their partner vehicles) go into production at the historic site at the end of next year.

    Everybody knows that the amount of energy required to move something is proportional to it’s weight.
    Therefore adding half a ton of batteries is not fuel efficient regardless of the type of fuel.
    I would be more impressed to hear that Stellantis were researching alternatives rather than just following the crowd.
