The New All-Electric Vauxhall Vivaro-e is here and available to order! With a long-range to get the job done and enough power to pull the heaviest of payloads, we hear you - finally, an electric van that does the business.
Offering all the practicalities you’d expect to find in a van including up to 1,226kg of payload, a 1,000kg towing limit and enough room to fit a pallet, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find you’ll also be able to travel up to 204 miles on a single charge.
New Vivaro-e comes with a choice of two batteries, giving you the flexibility to choose the van that best fits your business. The cheaper 50kW battery will take you 143 miles on a single charge and increases your payload to 1,226kg; while the 100kW array delivers a 204-mile range; however, the bigger battery reduces your payload down to a still very respectable 1,002kg. Both batteries power the same 100kw electric motor delivering 134bhp and 260Nm of torque to the front wheels.
With charging speeds of up to 100kW, a rapid charger will deliver an 80% charge to the 50Kw battery in just 30 minutes, while the larger battery will take a speedy 45 minutes to reach 80% of charge. A more normal 7.4kW charger suitable for most homes will charge the Vivaro-e’s battery in 8 hours and 11 hours, respectively. An 11kW charger will reduce those times by a third; you will, however, need a three-phase electrical supply.
The leads required to charge from a standard AC three pin-wall domestic wall socket and a Type 2 AC charger are supplied with the Vivaro-e. The rapid 150kW chargers always have the charge lead tethered to them, so you need not worry about carrying the right lead when charging the Vivaro-e here.
Built for practicality, the versatile Vivaro-e comes in two body styles, the standard panel van, as well as the double cab offering an additional second row of comfortable seats. Both body styles also come in L1 and L2 variants, with the L2 delivering an extra 34cm of length in the load area.
Coming in two options, the Dynamic entry-level trim delivers a vast amount of specification for the money, including a 3.5” digital instrument cluster, cruise control, seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, rear parking sensors, hill start assist and more.
Upgrade to the Elite trim level, and you will find yourself surrounded with the latest technology, as well as a few additional stylish features. From the outside of the Vivaro-e, you’ll notice the Elite model has body-coloured bumpers, power-folding door mirrors, chic 17” alloy wheels. Meanwhile, on the inside, you will find a panoramic rear-view parking camera, front and rear parking sensors, a FlexCargo load-through bulkhead, satnav, a head-up display and more. Plus you’ll also get two-coat metallic paint!
The Elite trim level also comes with several driver-assistance safety systems, such as lane-departure warning, speed-sign recognition with intelligent speed adaptation, blind-spot alerts, semi-adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection.
You can relax in the blissfully quiet cabin of the New Vivaro-e knowing it produces no noise pollution to disturb you or anyone around you! Plus with bluetooth and DAB radio, you can now experience sport, music or your favourite podcast without the annoying engine noise rumbling in the background.
With adaptive regenerative braking, you can capture the energy that would usually be wasted – and in the process save you brakes. That means longer journeys on a single charge and longer times between needing your brakes replaced. WIN, WIN!
Harnessing the latest technology to monitor every aspect of the electric van and the environmental conditions, it produces accurate vehicle ranges and health of your van.
Low running costs and Government grants make the Vivaro-e your ideal cost saving companion. With predictable and cheaper electricity costs you wont have to worry about the large fluctuations in the price of fuel anymore. Plus being fully electric, the Vivaro-e will let you pass into Londons ULEZ's with no penalty to pay!
Not to mention the reduced servicing requirements. Thanks to the regenerative braking you'll experience reduced brake wear, meaning less brake pad and disc changes.
When you add the government grants on top of all your saving, the Vivaro-e really does begin to stack up for business. Talk to our commercial vehicle specialist for a detailed understanding on how much you could be saving when switching to the Vivaro-e.
