Vauxhall is moving away from its heavy van partnership with Renault and taking on the Stellantis van for its next Movano model.

The move will also provide Vauxhall with an electric option in the large van sector, with the launch of Movano-e.

The diesel vans will be offered in four wheelbases and three height options, with panel vans from 8-17m3. There will also be a wide range of chassis cabs, in single and double cab configurations, along with crew cab vans and a platform cab for conversion.

In common with the Peugeot and Citroën e-Boxer and e-Relay, the Movano-e will be offered with a choice of 37kWh and 70kWh battery packs. The smaller unit delivers up to 72 miles of range and the larger battery offers 139 miles. Both batteries drive the vans through a 90kW (122hp) electric motor.

Both the diesel Movano and the electric Movano-e are expected to be launched later in the summer, with the EV van allowing Vauxhall to offer customers a full line-up of electric vans from Combo-e through to Movano-e.
