Vauxhall Combo-e Life specs revealed
The all-new Vauxhall Combo-e Life EV has been revealed, with this all-electric MPV capable of up to 174 miles between charges.
Priced from £31,610, it’s available to order now. Here’s what you need to know.
Vauxhall Combo-e Life exterior
On the outside, it looks pretty much identical to the standard Combo – that’s to say obviously a van-derived MPV which has been designed entirely with practicality in mind.
As such, it gets the same visual cues as the van version up front, although body-coloured bumpers and some more car-like trim has been added.
There’s two versions to choose between: a 4.4-metro long standard version and the 4.75-metre long XL. The standard car gets five seats and 597 litres of boot space.
The larger XL is a seven-seater and can provide up to 2,693 litres of boot space with the rear seats folded down.
Vauxhall Combo-e Life interior and specs
The Combo-e Life is available exclusively in SE trim, and in two sizes; a Medium and a longer XL variant. Medium models can be specified in either five- or seven-seat configurations, while XL vehicles are offered exclusively with seven seats.
All models come standard with 16in alloy wheels, nearside and offside sliding side-access doors, LED daytime running lights with high-beam assist, a panoramic rear-view camera and automatic windscreen wipers. SE models also get body-coloured bumpers and side protection mouldings as well as electrically adjustable and foldable door mirrors.
Inside, you’ll find Vauxhall’s Multimedia system with an 8in colour touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also included is Vauxhall Connect, which allows drivers to access vehicle information and charge status and live traffic updates when on the move.
Vauxhall Connect also comes with Vauxhall’s e-Call and b-Call technology, where in the event of an emergency or breakdown drivers are put in touch with a trained advisor with just the touch of a button. SE models also come standard with a 3.5-inch colour instrument display. Options include a reverse parking camera and a panoramic sunroof.
Safety is high on the agenda too, with all models featuring automatic emergency brakes, lane-keep assist and a traffic sign recognition system.
Vauxhall Combo-e drivetrain
Featuring a 50kWh lithium-ion battery and a 140hp electric motor, it’s capable of up to 174 miles between charges.
Using a 100kW fast charger can recoup a full charge in around 30 minutes. All models feature a 7.4kW charger for use with home-installed wall boxes, while an 11kW option is an extra.

The Vauxhall Combo-e is available to order right now, with list prices starting from £31,610. However, deliveries aren’t expected to commence until October.
