Vauxhall’s Vivaro e-Concept set to debut in Germany

Vauxhall’s Vivaro e-Concept, an electric van with an extended range of up to 250 miles, will make its debut on Wednesday this week at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover, Germany.

The lithium ion battery modules, which can be re-charged on a standard household 240V outlet, are mounted under the floor of the vehicle where they are protected from the elements providing 5.0m3 of load capacity and up to 750kg of payload.

Chris Lacey, executive director, international operations Opel/Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles, said: “We are convinced that we will get a fantastic reaction from commercial vehicle specialists who use such vehicles on a daily basis.  Electric mobility will allow them to travel in city areas which are now off-limits to petrol and diesel-powered vehicles and the range-extender technology makes it possible to use an electric van for normal routine business.”
