Opel begins the next chapter with the Astra, introducing the Opel Astra Electric, the first all-electric version of the compact car. In addition to the Astra hatchback, the Opel Astra Sports Tourer Electric will be a German manufacturer's first all-electric station wagon.
The Opel Astra Electric has an electric motor with 115 kW (156 hp) and a maximum torque of 270 Nm on the front axle, which is ten Newton meters higher than its technical siblings, the Peugeot e-308 and Jeep Avenger.
The 2023 Opel Astra electric car (sedan or station wagon) has a top speed of 170 km/h. Depending on your preferences, you can select one of three driving modes: "Eco," "Normal," or "Sport."
The energy required for this is stored in a 54 kWh lithium-ion battery in the underbody of the Opel Astra Electric. Opel claims a range of up to 416 kilometers from 102 battery cells in 17 modules, with WLTP consumption of 14.9 kWh per 100 kilometers. It can be charged with up to 100 kW, and the residential wall box can be charged with up to 11 kW.
Even inside, little indicates that you are in an electric Astra. Ergonomic seats, which are also available in the standard, are designed to provide the driver and front passenger comfort. In contrast to the combustion engine variations, these can also be ordered in Alcantara. The Opel Astra electric car features an infotainment system with two 10-inch touchscreens and a head-up display.
Orders for the Opel Astra Electric will begin in spring 2023, with prices to be announced later. The basic petrol engine costs 25,510 euros (up from 26,600 euros for the Sports Tourer), while the diesel engine costs 31,600 euros. The plug-in hybrid will now cost at least 39,100 euros, and the fully electric version will cost the same amount. @via Opel.
