Performance & drive

What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is

While the Vauxhall Combo-e Life shares a 134bhp electric motor and battery pack with the Citroën e-C4, its shape and weight mean it's not as quick.

That said, the 11.7sec 0-62mph time of the five-seater version actually beats the non-electric Vauxhall Combo Life. It feels faster, too, because as with all electric cars the power is available instantly and there are no gears to change, so it gets off the line swiftly.
