Jury Full of Praise

The Opel Corsa Electric has been named the “2024 EV of the Year” by the Association of Business Drivers in the Netherlands in the so-called ‚Mid-Segment‘ category. The perennial bestseller from Rüsselsheim impressed the jury with its range of up to 405 kilometres (WLTP) and its charging speed. Furthermore, the ongoing sales success and popularity of the Corsa contributed to this excellent assessment.

The “EV of the Year” award has been held by the Association of Business Drivers in the Netherlands for six years now. The jury includes subject experts from Leaseplan Nederland, media outlet AutoWeek and charging solutions provider Eneco eMobility. The nominated cars are divided into three categories: Mid-Segment, High-Segment and Top-Segment. In addition, there is a “Promise of the Year Award”, which goes to a promising electric car that has only just entered the market or will be introduced soon. The nominated models are assessed based on various criteria, including range, charging speed, driving characteristics, towing weight, ease of use, (lease) price and availability.

The “EV of the Year 2024” award in the Netherlands is the latest in an ever-growing list of accolades for the small car from Rüsselsheim. Last year alone, the Opel Corsa won multiple awards. It was judged the best-looking car in its segment by more than 14,500 readers of auto motor und sport, who voted the Corsa the “Best New Design of 2023”. The Corsa also scored strongly in the UK. There it won the title of “Best Small Car of the Year” (The Sun) as well as “Best Fleet Supermini” (Fleet World) and “Best Used Small Car” (Carbuyer).
