Vauxhall Combo Electric in Billinghay Lincolnshire
The Combo Electric makes short work of the daily grind with zero emissions. The 50kWh battery delivers up to 175-miles of range and charges from 10-80% in as little as 30 minutes at 100kW. The near-silent, vibration-free 136PS electric motor delivers instant power and torque (260Nm) for diesel-beating pulling power, and you can toggle Power, Normal, and Eco drive modes to change the power output. Two panel van body lengths and class-leading load carrying capacity make the Combo Electric a smart choice.
Prime and Pro trim grades are offered – Pro models get the FlexCargo bulkhead, which expands the load carrying capacity in L1 and L2 versions from 3.3m3 and 3.9m3 to 3.8m3 and 4.4m3 respectively. Pro models also have an 8” touchscreen, a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, and metallic paint. Prime kicks off the range with air conditioning, cruise control, Vauxhall Connect, hill start assist, and daytime running lights.
A professional through and through, the Combo Electric impresses with a handsome front end, 16” steel wheels, and daytime running lights. L1 versions have a nearside sliding door, while L2 versions have offside and nearside sliding doors.
Thanks to adjustable regenerative braking and selectable drive modes, the Combo Electric drives just how you like it. The 136PS electric motor packs a punch, and all versions get rear parking sensors, cruise control, and hill start assist.
The L1 panel van has a payload capacity of 803kg, while the L2 version has a 751kg payload capacity. The load capacity of L2 models goes up to 4.4m3 with the FlexCargo bulkhead, and all models have six floor-mounted load restraint lashing eyes.
