The Corsa-e offers three driving modes: Normal, Eco and Sport. Only in Sport mode are all the available horses and Newton metres unleashed. If you switch it to Normal, power and torque are limited to 80kW and 220Nm respectively. If you really want to drive economically, you can select Eco mode and cut off another 20kW and 40Nm.
You can also put the lever in either D (Drive) or B (Brake). The first position is suitable when you want to decelerate slowly, like on the highway. The second is more suitable for urban use and increases regenerative engine braking, but not to the extent that the car comes to a complete stop. This braking could have been a bit stronger.
The Corsa-e makes steering fun in any case. The suspension also makes a good impression, while the low centre of gravity ensures good body control when cornering.
