The Opel Astra model is gradually expanding its range: after the debut of the traditional gasoline and diesel versions and the presentation of the hybrid Opel Astra GSe, it’s time to add a fully electric version as well.
Moreover, the Opel Astra electric car will make its debut in two body styles — a hatchback and a station wagon. Although they differ only in barely noticeable details from the already known versions of the model: the designation “e”, their own wheel disks, special graphics of the displays in the cabin.
However, there are much more technical differences. After all, the Opel Astra electric car received a battery with a nominal capacity of 54 kWh (51 is used), which is enough to cover a distance of 416 km according to the WLTP measurement rules. An electric motor with a capacity of 115 kW (156 hp) and a torque of 270 Nm is installed under the hood. In addition, it is worth noting the charging options: from an alternating current source with a capacity of up to 11 kW, or from a direct current source – 100 kW.
The new Opel Astra electric cars will be available on the European market in the summer of 2023. The hatchback will be the first, and later the time will come for the station wagon.
