Today Opel (and its British subsidiary Vauxhall) officially announced Combo-e Life - the passenger version of its compact van Combo-e, shown in January.

The specs mirror the specs of PSA's delivery vans so there is the same 50 kWh battery for up to 280 km (174 miles) of WLTP range, 100 kW electric motor and a decent fast charging rate of up to 100 kW.

The Combo-e Life will be available in two lengths (4.4 m and 4.75 m), both with either five or seven seats. Sales in Europe will start in Autumn.
