Vauxhall launched the new Combo-E commercial van recently, it shares its platform with the Peugeot e-Partner and Citroën e-Berlingo and this week the first non van version of the Combo-e has been announced, with the Life variant which is geared more towards families, with room for up to seven seats and a range of 174 miles.

The Combo-e Life has a single electric motor which makes 134bhp, taking it from 0-60mph in 11.2 seconds. All three vans have a limited top speed of 80mph, to help with range. The Vauxhall Combo-e Life has a 50kWh battery which gives it 171 miles of range, at the WLTP standard. 100kW rapid charging is supported too, allowing for 0% to 80% charge in 30 minutes.

Styling wise on all three vans hasn’t changed much at all from the standard petrol and diesel versions, which is good as it doesn’t need to look any different or stand out at all.

The Combo-e Life will go on sale later this year in autumn, with prices to be confirmed.
