Big price reductions in revamped Vauxhall van range

Vauxhall cuts electric van prices, introducing updated Combo, Vivaro, and Movano with significant range and power enhancements.

Manufacturers

Vauxhall has announced significant price reductions on its electric vans, as part of its renewed LCV line-up. The updated Combo, Vivaro and Movano vans have exterior style revisions alongside a redesigned cockpit, while also slashing prices for the electric variants by thousands of pounds – over £12k for the Movano Electric.

As with sister brand Peugeot’s newly revamped LCV line-up, the changes support an all-encompassing van reboot across the Stellantis group as part of its recently launched commercial vehicle offensive.

Vauxhall’s updated range kicks off with the revised Combo and Combo Electric, on sale in Prime and Pro designations. The duo are available in two lengths, with a choice of two or three front seats, and as a five-seat crew van.

The Combo Electric is now priced from £26,800 (incl. Plug-in Van Grant, excl. VAT) – saving £4,750 over the outgoing model. Powered by a 136hp electric motor, it now delivers increased WLTP range of 205 miles – 30 more than before – thanks to the arrival of a new 50kWh battery. It comes with a 7.4kW onboard charger as standard (an 11kW charger is optional), and the battery can be recharged from 0-80% in 30 minutes at a 100kW public charging station.

Next up are the Vivaro and Vivaro Electric. These are available in two lengths (4.98m and 5.33m), as a panel van, crew van/double-cab and a platform-chassis for a variety of body types. Depending on the version, the Vivaro offers up to 6.6cu m of cargo volume and 1.4 tonnes of payload.

The line-up includes the Vivaro Electric – the UK’s best-selling electric van in 2023 and due to go into limited production at Vauxhall’s Luton manufacturing plant from spring 2025. It’s now priced at £37,805 (incl. Plug-in Van Grant, excl. VAT), representing a saving of £2,580 over the outgoing 75kWh model.

The new version delivers a WLTP range of up to 217 miles, up by 12 miles over the outgoing model. The 75kWh battery can be charged using the standard 7.4kW onboard charger (an 11kW charger is optional), while a 5-80% charge takes 45 minutes at a 100kW public charger.

The Movano and Movano Electric large vans share many of the upgrades among their smaller siblings – and the electric variant now cuts pricing to £46,135 (L3H2 panel van – incl. Plug-in Van Grant, excl. VAT). That’s a saving of £12,350 compared to the outgoing model.

The largest van in Vauxhall’s LCV line-up is available in three heights, as well as panel van, window van, chassis double-cab, platform and back-to-back versions, with up to 17cu m of cargo volume and a payload of up to two tonnes.

The Movano Electric comes with a new 110kWh battery, able to cover up to 261 miles (WLTP) on a single charge and equipped as standard with a three-phase 11kW onboard charger. It is also the first Vauxhall capable of charging at 150kW from a DC rapid charger, enabling a 0-80% charge in 55 minutes.

It’s powered by an electric motor producing 272hp and 400Nm of torque – increases of 150hp and 140Nm over its predecessor.
