Vauxhall to introduce eight electrified models Vauxhall has confirmed that it is continuing to push ahead with its large-scale electrification offensive, and that it will offer a total of eight electrified vehicles in ‘important volume segments’ as early as 2021.

Vauxhall/Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller ( said: “We will electrify our entire product portfolio by 2024. Further models will follow very soon, after we made the start with the Corsa-e and the Grandland X Hybrid4 this year.”

The battery-electric version of the Vivaro van, as well as the electric version of the Mokka X successor, will be added to Vauxhall’s electric line-up next year.

Electric variants of the Combo and Combo Life, along with the electric version of the Vivaro Life, will be added in 2021.

Vauxhall’s portfolio will also include an electrified version of the next-generation Astra.

Mr Lohscheller added: “This product portfolio will put us in an excellent position to meet the ambitious future emission targets in Europe.

"Electro-mobility is an indispensable component in this, but our ultra-modern and efficient combustion engines and research into fuel cells at the Rüsselsheim-based Centre of Competence will also make an important contribution to making our company sustainable and future-proof.”
