Vauxhall is the UK’s best-selling electric Light Commercial Vehicle (e-LCV) manufacturer, according to the latest sales and registrations figures published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
Figures show Vauxhall has sold 1,828 e-LCVs year-to-date. It is one of the few manufacturers able to offer customers an electric van across its entire LCV line-up, with the all-new Combo-e compact van completing the brand’s offering after going on sale in August.
Sales success so far this year has been underpinned by the Vivaro-e, the best-selling model year-to-date in the e-LCV sector, with a WLTP range of up to 205 miles and a maximum payload of up to 1,226kg.
Paul Willcox, managing director, Vauxhall, said: “As a British brand, I’m proud to see Vauxhall is leading the electrification of the UK van market with our multiple award-winning Vivaro-e. Vauxhall is all about democratising access to electrified vehicles and, with the All-New Combo-e and All-New Movano-e now available to order, we offer an all-electric version of each of our vans, further helping to reduce in-use emissions and bring the lower running costs and user experience of driving electric to even more businesses.”
Vauxhall has committed to offer an electrified variant across its entire car and van range by 2024, and offer only fully electric cars and vans in the UK from 2028.
