Vauxhall Combo Electric (2021 – 2024) Review

Vauxhall Combo Electric (2021 – 2024) At A Glance


+Excellent to drive, spacious and well laid-out load bay, smart interior, wide dealer network

-Quite pricy, limited range won’t work for everyone

The latest version of the Vauxhall Combo is bigger and more practical than its predecessor and has been a big hit with fleets and private users, but how does the all-electric version measure up to its rivals and its diesel siblings? Read our Vauxhall Combo Electric review to find out.

Sharing its bodywork, electric motor and battery technology with the Peugeot e-Partner, Citroen e-Berlingo and Toyota Proace City Electric, the Vauxhall Combo offers a 171-mile range (based on the WLTP test cycle) and a payload of up to 800kg, with between 3.3 and 3.9 cubic metres of load space.

It uses a 51kWh battery pack and an electric motor offering up to 136PS depending on driving mode.

The Vauxhall Combo Electric can also use CCS rapid charging with a maximum speed of 100kW - allowing a 0-80% charge in around 30 minutes on a 100Kw charger. The onboard charger, meanwhile, is a 7Kw unit compatible with most home sockets, but a three-phase compatible 11kW charger is offered an option for larger business users. A standard at-home charge will take about 7.5 hours.

There are two trim levels – entry-level Prime and more upmarket Pro – and two different body lengths – L1 and L2. In addition, the battery comes with an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty.
