Pricing starts at just under £30,000 after deduction of the £1,500 government Plug-in car Grant; that gets you the base five-seat Medium length version, which can also be had with a third seating row for £500 more. If you want to seat seven though, you're better off specifying the longer wheelbase 'XL' body shape, which costs just over £30,000.
Whatever your choice of Combo-e Life model, there's a single 'SE' level of trim on offer. That gets you 16-inch alloy wheels, nearside and offside sliding side-access doors, LED daytime running lights with high-beam assist, a panoramic rear-view camera and automatic windscreen wipers. 'SE' models also get body-coloured bumpers and side protection mouldings as well as electrically adjustable and foldable door mirrors.
Inside, all models come standard with Vauxhall's Multimedia system with an eight-inch colour touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also included is Vauxhall Connect, which allows drivers to access vehicle information and charge status and live traffic updates when on the move. Vauxhall Connect also comes with Vauxhall's e-Call and b-Call technology, where in the event of an emergency or breakdown drivers are put in touch with a trained advisor with just the touch of a button.
The Combo-e Life comes as standard with a reasonably high level of safety and driver assist features, including rear parking sensors and a panoramic rear-view camera. Plus automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, cruise control with a speed limiter and speed sign recognition.
