Vauxhall is forging ahead with its electric revolution as part of the Stellantis Group, where the brand has a future thanks to a fresh approach to design that will be underpinned by its transformation to selling electric cars only by 2028.
The brand will pitch the new Manta against rivals such as the Kia EV6 and Hyundai Ioniq 5. These combine elements from conventional five-door hatchbacks with aspects of larger family SUVs and boast sporty, almost coupé-like influences – a mix that has found real mainstream appeal.
Vauxhall has yet to outline a specific date when the new Manta will go on sale, but given that it will be the lead vehicle for the brand’s first all-new generation of totally electric cars, we can expect it to be on the far side of 2025 rather than before it, and closer to that 2028 deadline.
