Vauxhall Corsa Electric 2021: Getting started with an electric car

lupus123 drives a Vauxhall Corsa Electric 2021 and shares how he got started.


Why did you buy the Vauxhall Corsa Electric?

Environmental issues


What got you into an electric car in the first place?

Considering the environment and pollution in the city where I live.


Initially, what did you find most confusing about electric car ownership and how did you solve that?

The advertising of range and charging. I settled for a Vauxhall Corsa Electric with an advertised range of 220 miles and took out a lease to see how I found EVs before investing in buying one.


What sources of information helped you e.g. people, groups, websites etc?

Mainly websites and lease offers


What are your top 3 pieces of advice for those people considering their first electric car?

Be aware of range, i.e. it may be advertised at say 220 miles but on motorway routes as you travel faster the range can drop considerably and the heating and AC effects the range also.
