British-built Vivaro makes world debut in Birmingham

The new Vivaro, built at Vauxhall’s Luton plant, has made its world debut at the 2014 CV Show.

The Vivaro is shown in both panel van and double cab body styles, to go on sale this summer.

Over €200 million has been invested in bringing the new model to production in Bedfordshire, securing 1,200 jobs in the Luton area.

Over 40 per cent of content for the new Vivaro is sourced in the UK.  The plant is also a major exporter with 52 per cent of production destined for European markets.

At the show, Vauxhall will also announce details of new Movano powertrains and Premier Van Centres, its refreshed commercial vehicle aftersales offering. 

Premier Van Centres are a network of 100 sites delivering full UK coverage. No appointment is necessary for diagnosis and lead times are no longer than three days.  Customers also get a dedicated telephone helpline.

Also on the stand will be UK show debuts for the Combo L2H2 and 4x4 and parcel van conversions of the Movano.

“It’s great to be back at the CV Show,” said Steve Bryant, Vauxhall’s commercial vehicle brand manager. “We are very proud to take the wraps of the new Vivaro for its world debut at its home motor show.”
