Introducing the Vauxhall Vivaro-e
The supremely popular Vauxhall Vivaro van has been electrified, resulting in a hugely capable and cost-effective commercial vehicle. With an impressive electric range and the ability to tow a trailer, the Vivaro-e is the perfect way to prove your credentials as an environmentally sustainable business.
Clever design means it has exactly the same amount of load volume as the internal combustion Vivaro, while the payload is extremely impressive - best in class, in fact.
To top it all off, standard equipment levels are very generous, and there's a choice of two different battery sizes depending on the individual needs of you and your business. It has a one tonne towing capacity, too.
Range and Performance
The Vauxhall Vivaro-e has an electric range of up to 205 miles. This figure is based on the larger 75 kW battery; the 50 kW version has an electric range of up to 144 miles, a number that was achieved with a half-tonne payload in the back during WLTP conditions.
On average, fleet vehicles cover 20,000 miles in a single year, which equates to 76 miles a day. The Vivaro-e can easily handle this level of usage, simply charge the van up overnight and you're good to go.
Payloads are 1,226 kg for the 50 kW version and 1,002 kg for the 75 kW version. As an additional bonus, both battery sizes offer a 1,000 kg towing weight and a 3,100 kg gross vehicle weight.
With rapid 100 kw charging capability equipped as standard on the Vivaro-e, the batteries can be charged from 0-80% in just 30 minutes on the 50 kW version, rising to 45 minutes for the 75 kW model. This is provided you have access to a public rapid charge point.
At home or at the work place, the on-board 7.4 kW and optional 11 kW will be able to juice the van from 0-100% overnight, so it'll be ready to go when you clock on for the day.
The Vivaro-e does its best to maintain its charge while you're out on the road, too. Lifting your foot off the accelerator allows the Regenerative Braking System to kick in, harnessing the kinetic energy to give the batteries a boost.
