The new Opel Astra Sports Tourer Electric celebrated its world premiere at the 2023 IAA Mobility in Munich. This makes the compact class bestseller one of the first battery-electric estate cars on the market. The new Opel Astra Sports Tourer Electric is available in Germany with an attractive monthly leasing rate of €359 or a starting price of €43,490 (all prices RRP in Germany including VAT, excluding subsidies). The compact class estate offers a high level of driving enjoyment and can cover up to 413 kilometres accordance with WLTP without stopping to charge. Weighing only 1,760 kilogrammes – less than many of its competitors – the new Astra Sports Tourer Electric also delivers a lively performance on the road.
The new Astra Sports Tourer Electric is already equipped with numerous electronic helpers and comfort features as standard. These include air conditioning, all-round LED lighting and the fully digital Pure Panel® cockpit with two 10-inch displays and Multimedia infotainment system. In the Opel Astra Sports Tourer Electric with top-of-the-line GS trim, the AGR-certified ergonomic Active sports seat increases comfort for the driver. The front collision warning system also has a traffic sign and speed assistant with stop function. The Intelli-Vision 360-degree camera offers an all-around view. In addition to the black exterior mirror housings and 18-inch light-alloy wheels, the sporty styling of the GS is underlined by the carbon-black roof, the black headliner and the high-gloss black Opel emblem and Astra lettering at the rear. GS drivers can order their Astra Sports Tourer Electric from €46,560 in Germany.
“With the new Opel Astra Sports Tourer Electric we are electrifying the estate car market sector. For the first time, our compact class bestseller for work and family is all electric. This is what versatile, locally emissions-free driving enjoyment together with responsibility looks like. We are also making the offer especially attractive. From now on, customers can choose from two equipment variants not only for our electric estate, but also for the battery-electric five-door model,” says Opel Germany brand boss Mario Köhler.
At the same time as orders start for the new Opel Astra Sports Tourer Electric, Opel is also expanding the offer for the Astra Electric five-door with an entry-level variant, which is available from €41,990 or a monthly leasing rate of €339.
Spacious all-rounder for everyday use: Locally emissions-free driving enjoyment
The new Opel Astra Sports Tourer Electric is efficient, exciting and above all versatile. The electric motor delivers 115 kW/156 hp and a powerful 270 Newton metres of maximum torque – available from the first touch of the accelerator pedal, ensuring brisk starts. The low kerb weight of around 1,760 kg contributes further to the lively progress. Also, while many other electric cars are limited to 150 km/h or 160 km/h, the new Astra Sports Tourer Electric has a top speed of 170 km/h. Depending on preferences, customers can choose between the three driving modes Eco, Normal and Sport.
The energy is stored in a compact 54-kWh lithium-ion battery, which offers efficient packaging, low weight, exemplary range and short charging times. The Astra Sports Tourer can cover up to 413 km locally emissions-free in accordance with WLTP and requires just 15.0 kWh of electricity per 100 kilometres (WLTP). The regenerative braking system ensures that energy can be recovered while driving. Even when the battery needs to be recharged, this means only a short “pit stop” at a charging point. The Astra Sports Tourer Electric can be charged to 80 per cent of the battery capacity in around 30 minutes at a 100 kW direct current fast charging station. In addition, the all-electric Astra Sports Tourer is equipped as standard with a three-phase 11-kW onboard charger for the wall box at home.
With vital statistics of 4.64 x 1.86 x 1.48 metres (L x W x H) and a loading of around 60 cm, the new Astra Sports Tourer Electric is an all-rounder that combines sporty styling with locally emissions-free driving and Opel’s typical talent for efficient packaging. The battery is located in the underbody, so no space for passengers and luggage is lost in the interior. Even with the rear seats up, the Astra Sports Tourer Electric offers 516 litres of luggage space in the boot – with the seats folded down, the capacity increases to up to 1,553 litres. This provides plenty of room for several suitcases or tools as well as bulky objects such as transport boxes. Another advantage: The low position of the battery also lowers the car’s centre of gravity, so that the Astra Sports Tourer Electric has a solid stance on the road.
Intelli-Drive 2.0, Intelli-Lux LED® and Co.: Top equipment plus practical packages
The optional Intelli-Drive 2.0 system integrates numerous electronic assistants and combines them for the first time with semi-automatic lane-change and intelligent speed adaptation. If the targeted lane is clear, the assistant steers the Astra Sports Tourer Electric into the desired lane with small steering movements. And intelligent speed adaptation ensures that – if confirmed by the driver – the vehicle’s speed is reduced accordingly when a new speed limit is reached or increased up to that limit. In addition to sensors, Intelli-Drive 2.0 also uses information from the over-the-air network. Intelli-Lux LED® Pixel Light, with 168 LED elements, increases safety still further.
To make it easier to choose options, Opel has put together practical packages for the Astra Sports Tourer Electric that are designed to meet the different preferences of buyers. The portfolio ranges from the Tech Package with Intelli-Lux LED® Pixel Light, wireless charging and roof rails, to Comfort Packages with heated seats and steering wheel or electric sliding glass sunroof, heated ThermaTec® windscreen, Intelli-Air system and sensor-controlled tailgate.
