Some of the latest electric cars from Vauxhall have been updated this week to be more efficient in electricity usage, which is resulting in some improvements in range, with a 6% improving for the Corsa-e and a 4% improvement for the Mokka-e.

The Corsa-e now has a quoted range of 222 miles, a jump from 209 and the Mokka-e has jumped from 201 to 209 miles of range. To achieve this, Vauxhall has made some subtle improvements throughout the cars, such as fitting a heat pump as standard now which is much more efficient than standard HVAC systems.

Both the Corsa-e and the Mokka-e now come with low-rolling-resistance tyres as standard which helps use less energy.

The new improved models are on sale now.
