Opel (And Vauxhall) Announce Combo-e Compact Van

Customer deliveries to start this autumn.

Opel (and its British subsidiary Vauxhall) officially announced the all-electric Combo-e compact delivery van, which will enter the European market in autumn 2021.

The introduction of the compact EV (cargo version and later a passenger version) is the final step in PSA’s strategy to electrify all vans. Citroën has already announced its model – ë-Berlingo Van, so now we wait only on Peugeot. By the way, Toyota also will use rebadged PSA’s compact van: Proace City Electric.

The specs for all those vehicles are the same, including 50 kWh battery, WLTP range target of 275 km (171 miles), 100 kW electric motor, 7.4 kW single-phase or 11 kW three-phase on-board charger and up to 100 kW DC fast charging capability.
