Just two trims will be available for the car both of which will come as standard with a 7-inch touch screen, 11kWh onboard charger, satellite navigation, LED headlights, alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, and DAB radio.

There is a battery warranty for the car which guarantees that at least 70 per cent of its capacity is maintained for 100,000 miles, or eight years.

Full specifications and range pricing will be available when Corsa-e receives its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, ahead of series production starting in January next year.
