Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Vauxhall Combo-e Life 50 kWh. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Standard 7.4 kW On-Board Charger
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 23h45m 5 mph

3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW † 5 hours 26 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Vauxhall Combo-e Life 50 kWh.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%

All about the Vauxhall Combo-e Life 50 kWh

Pricing

The Vauxhall Combo-e Life 50 kWh has a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £33,280 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £34,085. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Vauxhall Combo-e Life 50 kWh is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Vauxhall Combo-e Life 50 kWh is 100 kW (134 hp). The maximum torque is 192 lb-ft. The Vauxhall Combo-e Life 50 kWh is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 11.7 seconds. The top speed is 84 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Vauxhall Combo-e Life 50 kWh has a total capacity of 50 kWh. The usable capacity is 46.3 kWh. An estimated range of about 130 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 90 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 195 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 7.4 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 7 hours 30 minutes. An optional on-board charger with a maximum power of 11.0 kW is available. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 5 hours. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 23 hours 45 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 101 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 78 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 30 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 90 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Vauxhall Combo-e Life 50 kWh is about 356 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 114 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 514 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 237 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Vauxhall Combo-e Life 50 kWh emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
