56

Stellantis brands Opel & Vauxhall are now able to offer its fleet and business customers a fully electric vehicle across its entire LCV line-up. Joining the Vivaro-e, winner of the 2021 International Van of the Year Award, is the All-New Movano-e large van and All-New Combo-e compact van.

On its stand at the Commercial Vehicle Show, held at the NEC in Birmingham, which runs between Tuesday 31 August and Thursday 2 September, the All-New Movano-e is Opel/Vauxhall’s first large Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) to be available as a fully electric variant. It delivers class-leading space, with 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 debut at the Commercial Vehicle Show today was the new Opel/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.

 

Paul Wilcox, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “What better place to launch our fully electric LCV line-up than The Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC in Birmingham. As the UK’s leading e-LCV manufacturer, we are proud that we can now offer fleets and businesses a fully electric van across our entire model range, helping fleets make the transition into cleaner and cheaper transportation.”
