The all-new Vauxhall Vivaro will have its world premiere at CV Show 2019, with the new British-built van now available to order in time for first deliveries this summer.
Vauxhall’s new mid-sized van will go into production at the company’s Luton plant shortly, and will be available in two lengths, three body styles and three trim levels. Pricing starts at £21,240 plus VAT.
As well as being an all-new vehicle, the latest Vivaro also represents a new chapter for Vauxhall’s Luton manufacturing plant and its 1,250 employees. More than two million Vivaro-type vans have been built at Luton since production started in 2001, and investment from Vauxhall’s new owners Groupe PSA will help increase the plant’s production capacity to 100,000 units per year.
For the first time, Vivaro will be available with dual sliding doors, both driver and passenger airbags, and cruise control with a speed limiter function.
The new Vivaro has a maximum payload of up to 1,400kg, which is 200kg more than the previous model, and a maximum towing weight of 2,500 kg, which is an increase of 500kg.
“As a British brand since 1903 and the UK’s largest commercial vehicle manufacturer, we’re delighted to reveal the all-new Luton-built Vivaro,” said Derek Wilson, Vauxhall’s LCV Director.
“Practical, comfortable, economical and packed with all latest driver assistance and connectivity technology, the all-new Vivaro is the vehicle that sits at the heart of our commercial vehicle range.”
Vauxhall has also announced an all-electric version of the new Vivaro will debut next year, so we look forward to seeing that model at CV Show 2020.
