Electric Vauxhall vans to make global debut at Commercial Vehicle Show

Firm’s hydrogen Vivaro van will also be on display

Vauxhall has announced that it will debut its electric vans at the upcoming Commercial Vehicle Show held at the NEC near Birmingham. 

The British firm has been ramping up its electric van range and now offers a battery-powered version of every commercial vehicle in its line-up, with the new Movano-e and Combo-e both making their public global debut at the event. 

The Movano-e is Vauxhall’s largest electric van, and promises to deliver class-leading space, with a cargo volume of 17m cubed, while offering a range of up to 139 miles on a full charge.

The smaller Combo-e becomes Vauxhall’s most affordable electric van, though still offers a load volume of 4.4m cubed, while having an electric range of up to 171 miles. 

Also making its UK debut will be the Vivaro-e Hydrogen, which features a fuel cell system in the engine bay and can be refilled with hydrogen in as little as three minutes. With its 249-mile electric range and an uncompromised cargo volume of 6.1m cubed, it could be an interesting alternative to a typical electric van in the future. Though launching in LHD markets at the end of 2021, it won’t be made in right-hand-drive form until 2023. Vauxhall hopes to speak to corporate fleets ahead of its launch in Britain. 

The Vauxhall Vivaro-e, which is already on sale, will be on display too, though the brand will also show a Platform Cab Concept at the show – which could be an ideal option for supermarket delivery vans in the future.

The Commercial Vehicle Show runs at the NEC from August 31 to September 2.
