Vauxhall announces price and specification for the all-electric Vivaro-e

Vauxhall announces price and specification for the all-electric Vivaro-e
Vauxhall has released pricing and specification for the Vivaro-e, its first factory-built, fully-electric van, set to arrive in the market as more and more UK cities welcome and mandate emissions-free vehicles. Vivaro-e is available to order from today with first deliveries in October.

British Gas has already announced that is has ordered 1,000 Vauxhall Vivaro-e. This was the largest commercial BEV (battery electric vehicle) order in the UK to date. 

The all-electric Vauxhall Vivaro-e will be available in two trim levels, Dynamic and Elite, two lengths, L1H1 and L2H1, two bodies, Van and Double Cab, and two battery sizes, 50kWh and 75kWh. 

Vivaro-e is based on the EMP2 multi-energy platform with exactly the same load volume ability as the internal combustion engine Vivaro. Payload is best in class, up to 1226kg, and, uniquely in the market for all-electric LCVs, Vivaro-e is capable of towing up to one tonne. 

The electric motor produces 136hp (100kW) with a powerful 260Nm of torque. Two battery sizes are available. 50kW offers 144 miles of all-electric range in WLTP conditions (this includes ½ payload). The larger 75kW battery offers 205 miles of range. With an average annual fleet mileage of 20,000 miles, both battery sizes can easily cope with the daily weekday mileage of 76 miles. Drivers can select one of three driving modes, Power, Normal and Eco depending on their requirement respectively: Increased performance for heavier loads, optimised for daily use or lowest energy consumption. 

100kW charging capability is available as standard enabling rapid charging of the 50kW battery from zero to 80% in 32 minutes and the larger battery in just 48 minutes. The on board charger is 7.4kW with three-phase 11kW available as an option. 

Connected services are available via MyVauxhall App including remote charging, with the ability to defer charging, and cabin temperature pre-conditioning. 

Vauxhall’s Vivaro-e continues the Brand’s electrification offensive. With the next all-electric LCV, the Combo-e arriving next year, Vauxhall will offer an electrified version of every passenger car and LCV model by 2024.
