Vauxhall has announced price cuts for its electric Corsa-E and Mokka-E models, in response to the UK Government's plug-in car grant changes.
The government last week reduced the maximum price threshold for cars to be eligible for the grant from £35,000 to £32,000, as well as reducing the value of the grant from £2,500 to £1,500.
In response, Vauxhall has announced a price cut of £3,000 for the Corsa-E and Mokka-E.
Following the change, new Corsa-E prices including the grant are £25,805 with the SE equipment grade, £27,055 for SRi, and £29,410 for Elite, while Mokka-E prices are now £29,365 for SE, £30,435 for SRi, £30,080 for Elite, and £30,495 for Ultimate.
The price changes also follow Vauxhall's announcement last week of increased official WLTP driving ranges for the models.
Vauxhall managing director Paul Wilcox said: "Vauxhall wants to move the UK to electric motoring as quickly as possible, which is why we have committed to being an electric-only brand from 2028.
"In light of a further evolution to the government plug-in car grant, we have taken the decision to change our pricing policy on our all-electric Corsa-E and Mokka-E models.
"With more attainable pricing from significant reductions on both models, as well as the grant, we hope to put zero-emissions-in-use motoring within the reach of even more British motorists."
