Vauxhall Vivaro-e offers a range of up to 185 miles
It’s safe to say Vauxhall is getting pretty serious about this whole electric thing. Following the all-electric Corsa-e and PHEV Grandland X, the manufacturer has revealed the Vivaro-e, its first all-electric foray into the commercial vehicle segment.
The electrified version of the successful Vivaro aims to offer the same outstanding practicality and comfort as the traditional diesel variants, and is based on the group’s highly variable EMP2 platform.
Two battery sizes will be available: A 50kWh battery which provides a range of up to 125 miles, and a 75kWh which offers at least 185 miles.
Electric variants of the Combo and Combo Life, along with an electric version of the Vivaro Life, will round out Vauxhall’s CV offering by 2021.
This is in line with the British brand’s commitment to delivering eight electrified models by 2021 and electrifying its entire product portfolio by 2024.
“For nearly two decades, the Vivaro has proven itself as a popular choice for moving goods and passengers alike,” said Richard Hughes, Vauxhall’s LCV director.
“Now, with emissions-free transport and deliveries becoming increasingly important in urban areas, the demand for purely electric light commercial vehicles is increasing accordingly. From small businesses and to large fleets, the all-new Vauxhall Vivaro-e is set to carry British business.”
