That ‘Life’, of course, stands for the passenger car version of the Combo van. The e-addition lets everyone know that you simply charge it with the cable and that you no longer need to fill up with petrol. The Combo-e Life is the umpteenth addition to Opel’s electric range, which recently presented us with the Mokka-e. However, it is the second in a row of commercial vehicles, after the Opel Vivaro-e. The larger Movano-e will follow later.
Like the other electric small Opels, the Combo-e Life also gets a 136 hp and 260 Nm strong electric motor under the hood, which takes you from 0 to 100 km / h in 11.2 seconds and is electronically limited to 130 km / h . The range is 280 km. If the battery is empty, you can recharge up to 80 percent using the fast charger in half an hour. The 3-phase 11 kW charger is supplied as standard.
Opel also offers the Combo-e Life in two lengths; the 4.4 meter long version and the 4.75 meter long version. You can get the latter with five or seven seats, also in the electric version. The maximum towing weight for the electric Combo-e Life is set at 750 kilograms. The IntelliGrip traction control is also available as an option on these electric vans.
Now we have to wait until the moment when Peugeot, Citroën and Toyota also present the electric versions of their small passenger vans. Opel has already said that they will start delivering the car from the fall of 2021. The price will be announced afterwards.
