Vauxhall is one of few brands to offer a fully electric variant across its entire LCV line-up, and they have just revealed significant price reductions to their new range.

Vauxhall has revealed the pricing and specifications for its new light commercial vehicle (LCV) range, which includes updated electric versions of the compact Combo, mid-size Vivaro, and large Movano vans. The refreshed lineup introduces a new exterior style and redesigned cockpit, while the fully electric versions maintain competitive driving ranges and significant price reductions.

The New Combo and New Vivaro offer two specification levels – Prime and Pro – from launch, catering to different customer needs. The Prime trim serves as the entry point, while the Pro trim enhances offerings with additional comfort and features. The New Movano simplifies options further, offering only the Prime trim.

Orders for the new Vauxhall LCV range are now open. Delivery dates vary by model and trim, and the first vehicles are set for delivery from Spring.

The Combo electric van is available in both Prime and Pro trim levels, with options for two lengths and the choice of two or three front seats. Produced at Ellesmere Port, the UK’s first EV-only volume manufacturing plant, the new Combo can travel up to 205 miles on a single charge. It boasts a new 50kWh battery (WLTP combined cycle) – an improvement of 30 miles over its predecessor. 

It features an electric motor developing 136PS and 270Nm of torque, along with a standard 7.4kW on-board charger (optional 11kW charger). This enables a 0-80% recharge in 30 minutes at a 100kW public charging station. It continues to offer up to 4.4 cubic meters of storage space, a 780kg payload, and a 750kg towing capacity.
