Opel adds that despite the small capacity of the additional battery, the Corsa can handle up to a kilometer without starting the combustion engine, but considering the modest performance of the electric motor in the gearbox, it can only do this at speeds of up to 30 kilometers per hour. So typically, for example, when jumping in traffic jams.
The automaker built two performance versions of the new mild-hybrid. The weaker one produces 100 hp at 5500 rpm. and a maximum torque of 205 newton meters at 1750 revolutions per minute. The more powerful version has 136 hp and 230 Nm, at identical speeds. And consumption? On average, a basic car should run for 4.6 to 4.7 liters of gasoline per 100 km, a more expensive model for 5.4 to 5.5 liters per hundred. According to Opel, mild-hybrid technology will save roughly 15 percent of fuel, transferring almost a liter of gasoline per 100 kilometers.
