These three vehicles seem to be pit against each other in 2020.

Anybody recommend one over the others or care to predict which would sell best.

I like the 100kw charge speed on the e208 and e-Corsa Whereas the Zoe has 50kw if you add the CCS charging (optional extra).

In the Zoes favour it has a slightly bigger battery 52kWH compared to the 50kWH of the other two giving it a slightly bigger range.

Im also keen on the adaptive cruise control of the e208 Which the others seem to miss.

I driven a Zoe for a while and I have ordered a ZE50 but tempted to cancel and look at the others. The 100kw charging and adaptive cruise control of the e208 is quite tempting.

For a 2020 model I would want 100kW charging and 150 miles range. I see that e208 and Corsa immediately available so prices not competitive, need good PCP to sell, whichever is best deal I would go with that.

I’d wait to see the actual charge times for the 208 and Corsa.
Theres a charging video on the e-208 forum which shows:

0-15% - 97kW
16-45% - 79kW
46-70% - 52kW
71-85% - 27kW
86-100% - 11kW


In comparison, we know from the Bjorn video that the ZE50 maintains 45kW till around 50%, when it drops quite linearly to 25kW at 85% and then stays around that till 100%.

There's about 20mins difference from 10-80% charge, with e-208 taking 40mins and the ZE50 taking 60mins.

What’s the cost of the 3?

Fluctuates a lot, and obviously variation depending on trim and specs, but typically the ZE50 and Corsa-e are similar from around £22-25k depending on trim/options. The e-208 is not being discounted much at all staying around the £25-30k region....

That’s very good. So shorter rapid charging or a larger boot. Take your pick.
Well and an extra £5k in your pocket as things currently stand! Although I'm not sure how the options compare at each comparative trim level.

I'm guessing the Corsa-e will follow a very similar charging curve, so that becomes a more interesting choice given it's priced very similar.

Best price I found on an e-208 GT with metallic paint was £28.5k, although I’ve seen one day special offer since. One dealer quoted me a price which suggested they were pocketing some of the Govt grant.

Prices I’m getting

corsa-e £26,700
e-208 £27,650
Zoe 50 £26,400
Are those top trim (with CCS for the Zoe)? Mine are:

Corsa: £25,900 (that was a whole ago and only for the 7kW AC, not metallic as its standard).
e-208 : £29,295 (with metallic paint)
Zoe: £24,908 (CCS and metallic paint)

Sorry I didn't meant £5k discount. I meant the Zoe was around £5k cheaper than the 208!

So 2% to 80% took 40 minutes and 20% to 80% (much more usual) was done in 35 minutes. Not bad. Wonder what the outside temperature was or whether there’s any preconditioning of the battery?

Yea not sure. In both cases, the cars are seemingly hitting their peak charge rates. The e-208 obviously has a bit more of an aggressive step-down in rate at certain SoC levels.

It would make sense that colder battery temps would affect whether it hits these peak rates at the earlier SoC. How much, guess we need to wait for Bjorn to do his 1000km challenge!

Pretty close call, but problem with cash price still way over petrol which won't win over the sceptics.

It looks good to get a 100kwh capable car, until you realise that most of the service stations I charge at are Ecotricity which only has 50kwh, oh well think I'll wait a few years for a cheap 2nd hand Tesla M3 :)

Good point. I just checked zap map and all the chargers I use are 50kW max.

Suppose it's worth getting a 100kW charger to be future proof.
This is why I ordered a Zoe with CCS. It has a "plan B" built in.
If the CCS is working, I get up to 50kW. If it isn't I still get up to 22kW on AC.
