Performance

The Opel Astra Electric has a maximum power of 115 KW (156 hp/154 bhp). The total torque is 260 nm (192 ft-lb). It performs the 0-100km/h sprint (0-62mph) in 10.5 seconds. The top speed is 170 km/h.

Battery, range, and charging

The battery has a gross capacity of 54kWh and a net capacity of 50.8kWh, meaning you have a 3.2kWh buffer for protection. (5.9%). The Lithium-Ion battery uses NMC technology.

The WLTP range is 413 km (257 mi). The consumption is 12.3kWh/100km for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.

The maximum DC charging speed is 100kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 57 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 29 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 4% to 57%, resulting in an actual charge speed, including time loss, of 66kW. Each charge session would take 24 minutes and 25 seconds.

For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 25kWh/100km, 1000km will take 11 hours and 24 minutes. This trip will require seven charge session(s) charging from 3% to 60%. The total time lost for charging up the battery will be 184 minutes.

Onboard charger

For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the onboard charger supports up to 11 KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 4 hours and 37 minutes.
