Vauxhall has confirmed that it will be all-electric by 2028, with new vehicles being produced in the UK.
Vauxhall, a British company, has stated that it will become an all-electric vehicle in just seven years.
Vauxhall has announced that by the end of 2021, it will offer fully electric vans throughout its entire lineup. By 2024, every Vauxhall model will be electrified, and by 2028, the entire range will be totally electric.
The future of the automobile industry, according to Paul Willcox, Managing Director of Vauxhall Motors, is “electric.”
Vauxhall will “lead” electrification in the UK as it moves toward a net-zero future, according to him.
“By 2028, Vauxhall will only sell entirely electric vehicles and vans in the United Kingdom,” he stated.
“Electric vehicles are the future of the automotive industry, and Vauxhall will lead the way in this country.
“We are reinventing Vauxhall and moving towards a net-zero CO2 future — CO2 is our industry’s new currency.”
A modern-day electric version of the Opel Manta will be released around 2025, according to Stellantis.
It comes after the firm’s Manta GSe ElektroMOD concept car received great feedback from the public.
Vauxhall gave fans a first look at the first totally electric All-New Astra just a few days ago.
The new Astra will be available as a five-door hatchback or a flexible Sports Tourer estate variant.
In the coming months, more detailed information about the new automobile, including cost and range, will be released.
The announcement comes only days after Vauxhall announced that its Ellesmere Port factory will begin producing electrified vehicles in 2022.
When the new Combo e-vans go into production next year, the plant will become the first Stellantis factory to produce only electric cars.
It’s Kwik Fits’ Midsommer Madness promotion, which means you can save 10% on your MOT Test with the UK’s #1 MOT tester if you book online.
Models from Vauxhall, Opel, Peugeot, and Citroen will be constructed at the factory as part of the new £100 million investment.
The decision, according to Carlos Tavaras, Chief Executive Officer of Stellantis, will ensure that Vauxhall remains in Britain, where it has been for nearly 120 years.
“Performance is always the trigger for sustainability,” he said, adding that the £100 million investment underscores the company’s commitment to the UK and Ellesmere Port.
“I want to thank our loyal, highly trained team in particular for their patience and contributions; we never let them down.
“At the same time, I’d want to express my gratitude to our partners at the Unite Union for their open thinking and solid cooperation,” Brinkwire Summary News said.
