Order books for Vauxhall’s new Movano and 100% electric Movano-e have opened, with prices starting from £30,755 and £61,085 respectively.
The all-electric Movano-e joins Vauxhall’s Vivaro-e and Combo-e as part of their promise to only offer fully electric cars and vans in the UK from 2028. With the introduction of the all-electric Movano-e and Combo-e LCVs, Vauxhall will offer fully electric vans across its range by the end of 2021.
For the first time, the Movano and Movano-e will feature a rear vision camera system which gives a live feed to the driver, helping them detect pedestrians and other road users. A blind spot monitoring system is also new to the Movano range, while a lane departure warning system is also available.
The Movano is available in three different lengths and heights. It comes with a maximum payload up to 2,110kg and a load volume of 17m3 – the equivalent of five Euro pallets.
It is available with a 2.2-litre diesel engine, with power outputs from 140PS to 165PS and torque figures between 300Nm and 370Nm. All versions of the engines feature a six-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive.
Featuring a 90kW (120PS) and 260Nm electric motor, the Movano-e is available with a 70kWh battery, giving a range of 139-miles under WLTP testing. Like Vauxhall’s other fully electric LCV models, Movano-e is exempt from current ultra-low and congestion charge payments.
The all-new Movano and Movano-e are both available in Dynamic and Edition trim levels.
All Movano-e models come standard with front fog lights and a painted radiator grille in the chosen body colour. Inside, the Movano-e features DAB radio with Bluetooth®, Vauxhall Connect that alerts emergency and breakdown services in the instance of an accident or breakdown, as well as a full steel bulkhead. The passenger side comes with a foldable, rotating tray and the glovebox contains a tablet holder.
Movano-e models also come standard with Vauxhall’s rear park assist, as well as pedestrian detection rear warning sound – which alerts drivers when pedestrians cross behind the van.
All-new Movano Edition variants come standard with DAB radio and Vauxhall Connect. All models also get a one-sided sliding door, full steel bulkhead and seat belt reminders.
Dynamic models add DAB radio with Bluetooth®, as well as a foldable, rotating tray to the passenger bench and a tablet holder inside the glove box. All-new Movano Dynamic models also feature Vauxhall’s pedestrian detection rear warning sound and rear parking assist for improved safety and manoeuvrability.
