New Vauxhall Corsa spearheads range overhaul and move to electrification, but the Adam and Viva will be killed off

Vauxhall is to completely overhaul its product range, introducing eight all-new or updated models by 2020.

The product refresh also brings with it a big electrification push: Vauxhall says that four fully electric or hybrid cars will be available to buy from 2020, while every car in its range will offer an electrified variant by 2024.

Two of the most significant all-new launches will happen in 2019, when the Corsa supermini and Vivaro van make their debuts. As part of the brand’s position within the PSA group, the next Corsa will ride on the Common Modular Platform (CMP), which will also underpin the next Peugeot 208. A fully electric version will arrive in the same year, with order books opening in the summer of 2019.

Both the commercial and passenger versions of the Vivaro van will appear at a similar time. PSA announced in April 2018 that the next Vivaro would be built at its Luton plant, which safeguards the jobs of around 1,400 workers.

2019 will also see the range of the Grandland X expand to include a plug-in hybrid variant. Sharing its platform with the Peugeot 3008, the Grandland X will share that car’s PHEV drivetrain. That means it’ll get a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol with an electric motor, for a combined 296bhp, a circa 6.5-second 0-62mph time and an electric-only range of around 30 miles.

Vauxhall aims to increase the proportion of its SUV sales from 25 to 40 per cent by 2021. The replacement for the Mokka X will play a big part in this, and is due to go on sale in 2020.

In an attempt to slim the range down, two of the brand’s smallest cars will fall by the wayside. Vauxhall has no plans to replace either the Adam or the Viva city cars, and plans to phase both models out by the end of 2019.

However, the Viva's platform won't be going completely to waste: Vietnamese company VinFast, which revealed details of its Sedan and SUV at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, will use the platform to underpin a fully-electric small car.
