Should you buy a Vauxhall Corsa-e?

Certainly it looks like you should. Vauxhall wants drivers to pick a car first, and a means of propulsion second. Should you buy one? If you're after a small electric car, choices are few and far between. There's the Peugeot e-208, which is broadly the same, and the Renault Zoe, which is a bit more pleasant inside.

Vauxhall usually has keen finance deals, which keeps things alive. And if you can get a tempting enough deal, we can heartily recommend the Corsa-e. However, if you're merely after a small runaround, it's a tougher choice.

The initial outlay is more for an electric car, and it has electric car-specific problems too, like where you can charge. For people after a small electric car it's well worth a look, but for those just seeking a small car, a cheaper Ford Fiesta is a simpler choice.
