Longer range, lower CO2 new Vivaro ecoFLEX

11-Jun-2012

Vauxhall Vivaro

Our new British-built Vivaro ecoFLEX Euro 5 panel vans, with low CO₂ emissions of just 180g/km and combined fuel economy of 40.9mpg, are in showrooms now.

 

Based on the short wheelbase standard roof models, but with some subtle specification changes, the Vivaro ecoFLEX could save you over £800* in three years compared to the 198g/km/37.6mpg standard version. With its 90-litre fuel tank, the Vivaro ecoFLEX is capable of over 800 miles on one tank of fuel – that’s the equivalent of driving from Maidstone to Milan or from Bristol to Brussels and back.

 

These substantial benefits result from a range of green technology features including exhaust fume recirculation cooling and optimised gear ratios. There’s also improved thermal management, low rolling resistance tyres and an aerodynamic kit.

 

If you want to save even more, we also offer Vivaro ecoFLEX Euro 5s equipped with a fixed speed limiter that yields CO₂ levels as low as 174g/km and a combined fuel economy of up to 42.7mpg. If you need to carry more than two passengers, for the first time you can also get an ecoFLEX version of the popular Vivaro 9-seater Combi.

 

“The new Vivaro ecoFLEX Euro 5 gives our customers improved fuel economy and lower CO₂ emissions,” said Steve Bryant, Vauxhall’s Commercial Vehicle Brand Manager. “Fuel economy and green credentials are top priorities for our customers looking to reduce running costs and the carbon footprint of their vehicles or fleets.”

 

The best-selling Vivaro is top of its retail segment with 3,531 registrations so far this year. Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles was also number one with retail customers in March and this year to-date. In 2011, we had our best ever retail year, selling more vans to private buyers than anyone else. Perhaps it’s no surprise that we build more commercial vehicles in the UK than any of our competitors.
