New Vauxhall Corsavan to feature start/stop technology

The new Corsavan ecoFLEX is the first Vauxhall commercial vehicle to feature Start/Stop technology, enabling the new Euro 5-compliant 1.3 CDTi (75PS) models to achieve 70.6mpg – a near 8mpg, or more than 12 per cent improvement - on the combined cycle over the previous Euro 4 model.

Compared with the outgoing Euro 4, 1.3 CDTi (75PS) engine, the addition of Start/Stop technology and Euro 5 emissions compliance has brought a 14g/km reduction in CO2 emissions, down to 105g. Torque will also increase by 20Nm to 190Nm. All Start/Stop vans are also fitted with a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter), which traps harmful particulates.

With an official urban mpg figure of 58.9mpg, the Corsavan ecoFLEX 1.3 CDTi (75PS) Start/Stop is more than 18 per cent more economical than the outgoing Euro 4 van without the new technology.

To ensure Start/Stop is reliable during the vehicle’s life, an enhanced starter motor is used, along with a high performance battery and Electric Power Management system, for efficient re-starts. An additional water pump keeps the cabin warm in cool weather during the stop phase, and owners have the ability to turn off Start/Stop completely via a dashboard button.
