Opel has recently unveiled two new electric models that are designed to offer comfort, space, and sustainability for families and travelers. The new Opel Combo Electric and Zafira Electric are the latest additions to Opel’s electrified passenger car range, which also includes the Corsa-e, Mokka-e, Grandland X plug-in hybrid, and Zafira-e Life.
A Modern Design with a Bold Brand Face
The new Combo Electric and Opel Zafira Electric have a modern and distinctive design that reflects Opel’s identity as a brand that combines tradition and innovation. For the first time, both vehicles proudly wear the bold and pure Opel Vizor, the German brand’s characteristic brand face. With the Opel Blitz in the center, the Vizor extends seamlessly into the LED headlights. And in the fully digital cockpit, the driver and front passenger can look at intuitive infotainment systems with 10-inch color touchscreens based on the Snapdragon Cockpit platform from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
The new models also feature a redesigned front bumper with a large air intake that improves aerodynamics and reduces noise. The rear end has a sleek LED light strip that connects to the Vizor. The side profile has a sporty look with flared wheel arches and chrome accents. The rear door handles have integrated LED lights that add to the futuristic appeal.
A Flexible Interior with Plenty of Space
The new Combo Electric and Zafira Electric offer plenty of space for passengers and luggage. Depending on the seating configuration, they can accommodate up to seven or nine people, respectively. They also have versatile overhead storage options with a total capacity of up to 186 liters. Whether planning a vacation or a large purchase, these newcomers are ideal companions.
The interior of both models is spacious and comfortable, with high-quality materials and ergonomic features. The seats are upholstered in leather or fabric, depending on the variant. The dashboard has a minimalist layout with clear displays for the speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, battery level indicator, range indicator, clock, climate control settings, media system controls, driver assistance systems indicators, and more. The steering wheel has buttons for audio system functions and cruise control.
The new models also have three individual seats in the second row of the Combo Electric for extra flexibility when loading or carrying passengers. They also have an optional panoramic roof with electrically activated sun protection for better visibility.
A Long-Range Battery with Fast Charging
One of the main advantages of electric vehicles is their long-range battery that allows them to travel further between charging stops without compromising performance or convenience. The new Combo Electric offers up to 330 kilometers (WLTP) of locally emissions-free range on a single charge, while the Zafira Electric offers up to 350 kilometers (WLTP). Both models have an underfloor location of their 50 kWh battery that maximizes space in the passenger compartment.
The good news is that both models can be charged quickly using fast-charging stations that can replenish up to 80% of their battery capacity in less than an hour. This means drivers can enjoy longer trips without worrying about running out of power or finding an outlet.
