Vauxhall reveals images of new Movano

Vauxhall has revealed the first images of its new Movano large van, which goes on sale this summer.

The safety of both the driver and other road users has been an important factor in the development of the new Movano, says Vauxhall. A rear vision camera system, available for the first time on the Movano, gives a live feed to a seven-inch touchscreen, providing optimum visibility and helping to detect cyclists and pedestrians. A blind spot monitoring system is also new to the Movano, using ultrasonic sensors to detect objects in the blind spot and alerting the driver with LED indicators in the corresponding mirror. A lane departure warning system, which sounds an audible alarm if the driver strays from their lane, is also available.

Despite its large dimensions, the Movano will remain planted to the road in high winds thanks to Side-Wind Assistant, which comes as standard on all models. In such conditions, the Electronic Stability Programme is automatically activated to improve handling.

Behind the wheel, the Navi 5.0 IntelliLink Pro infotainment system provides driver connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.

New Movano is available in four different lengths and three heights, carrying a maximum payload of up to 2110kg and 17m3 of cargo. This means that, in certain configurations, the van can transport up to five euro pallets.

Inside the cabin are multi-adjustable seats, with the option of an air-cushioned driver’s seat, perfect for frequent use over bumpy surfaces. In the cargo area, LED lighting and new handles on the side-walls and pillars improve convenience.

Prices are yet to be announced.
