It also has a 50kWh battery, which can cover up to 221 miles on a single charge and can be recharged from zero to 80 percent in just 30 minutes from a 100kW rapid charger.

Additionally, the Corsa features automatic lights and wipers, climate control, LED headlights and daytime running lights, high beam assist, keyless entry and rear parking sensors.

The latest Vauxhall model has an array of driver-assistance tech such as a lane departure warning with lane keep assist, speed sign recognition and driver drowsiness alert.

There is also cruise control with a speed limiter and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.

Due to Vauxhall’s partnership with supermarket Tesco, new customers also benefit from one year’s free charging credit at stores across the country.

The cheaper price compares with other established UK electric vehicles which range between £29,000 and £40,000 for the well-known Tesla brand.

As of January 2024, there are one million vehicles on the roads and a further 600,000 plug-in hybrids. A further 315,000 battery-electric cars were registered in 2023 – 18 per cent more than in 2022.
