The new Opel Astra will be available as a fully electric car. The Opel Astra sales begin next spring, but the Opel Astra electric car will be available from 2023. This was stated by Uwe Hochgeschurtz, the new Opel CEO, at the unveiling of the next model generation.
However, he did not want to reveal technical data about the electric drive yet. Orientation could be provided by the Opel Zafira-e, which uses the same EMP2 platform and is already available - with a drive power of 100 kW (136 hp) like the Corsa-e and the Mokka-e, however, in two battery versions with 50 and 75-kilowatt hours (kWh). The Astra-e may get the same drive train. This means that ranges of up to 500 kilometers in the large version should also be possible in everyday use.
