Vauxhall adds Griffin versions to new Corsa-e and Crossland

Vauxhall has expanded its Griffin line-up – that offers high levels of standard specification, including comfort and safety technologies as well as new styling features – to include its best-selling all-electric Corsa-e and Crossland models.

The Griffin variants add a number of key styling features for both the New Corsa-e as well as the New Crossland, and come with a number of technology and safety features for added value, including heated seats and heated steering wheel, as well as semi-autonomous safety features such as Automatic Emergency City Braking and Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist. Vauxhall already offers Griffin versions of Corsa, Astra and Grandland X.

Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “We’ve added new Griffin variants to both the New Corsa-e as well as the New Crossland vehicle ranges, offering Vauxhall customers high standard specification and more value. The Corsa-e continue to impress buyers, as the UK’s best-selling small electric car, and the Griffin model makes owning an all-electric vehicle even more affordable.”
