2023 Vauxhall Astra-e

The eighth-generation Astra will finally go electric, but it won’t be here as soon as you think.

Now in its eighth generation, the Astra finally comes with a good news!

An electric version - Astra-e - will be added to the lineup starting 2023

Astra-e will be the fifth electric model in Vauxhall's lineup and is part of a join effort to make the lineup full electric by 2028

Vauxhall didn't reveal any specs for the Astra-e just yet, but we have the Corsa-e to use as a reference

In here, the electric motor delivers a total of 136 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque and offers a range of 330 kilometers

Until customers will actually be able to enjoy the electric Astra, a wide range of gasoline, diesel and hybrids will be offered

On the gasoline end, the 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol direct injection engine can be had with either 110 horsepower or 130 horsepower

Customers that still have a passion for diesel can opt for a 1.5-litre four-cylinder with 130 horsepower

There is also a hybrid version that combines a 160-horsepower engine with an 110-horsepower motor, and a plug-in hybrid model with a total of 180 horsepower

The eighth generation Astra will go on sale in the first quarter of 2022
