Vauxhall unveils new electric vans

VAUXHALL is now able to offer fleet and business customers a fully electric vehicle across its entire LCV line-up with the launch at the Commercial Vehicle Show of the new Movano-e large van and  Combo-e compact van.

The Movano-e is Vauxhall’s first large Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) to be available as a fully electric variant. It delivers a cargo volume of up to 17m3, while its zero-emission powertrain offers up to 139 miles of range (WLTP).

The Combo-e builds on the diesel Combo’s success, which was named 2019 International Van of the Year. With a 50kWh battery providing a range of 171 miles (WLTP) combined with a load volume of 4.4m3, the Combo-e is a practical, compact electric van suitable for both businesses and private users.

Also making its UK debut at the CV Show was the new Vauxhall Vivaro-e Hydrogen, which will be available in LHD markets by the end of the year, and the UK in RHD from early 2023. The hydrogen-powered van features a fuel cell system located in the engine bay for a 249 mile range and refuelling in as little as three minutes. It has an uncompromised cargo volume of up to 6.1m3. Vauxhall is speaking to corporate fleets ahead of its UK launch.

The Vivaro-e Platform Cab Concept has also made its debut at the show. Working with Paneltex on the vehicle body, the concept targets supermarkets and retailers who are looking at short-cycle home delivery in urban areas within one to two hours. Vauxhall Fleet has worked on the concept with its customers to develop unique solutions to best suit their business needs.

Last month, Stellantis announced a £100 million investment in Vauxhall’s Ellesmere Port manufacturing plant to transform the site for a new era in electric vehicle manufacturing. Ellesmere Port will become the first Stellantis plant to produce a solely battery-electric model, in both commercial and passenger versions, by the end of next year, including the Combo-e and Combo-e Life, for both domestic and export markets.
