Vauxhall is introducing a mid-summer package of improvements to Movano. Running changes include an upgrade to the range’s infotainment package, alongside major enhancements to further improve CO2 emissions and fuel economy figures.
From mid-June onwards, infotainment systems across all Movano models will be upgraded to include Bluetooth® and USB connectivity as standard. This change also applies to the optional Office Pack and Comfort Pack. Virtually universal in compatibility, Bluetooth® connectivity makes mobile phone communication a whole lot safer.
The other major change to Movano this summer sees reduced CO2 emissions and improved fuel economy across the vast majority of models. These improvements have been gained through specific modifications to the oil and steering pumps, tyres, gearbox oil and electrical control systems.
The changes will be introduced from mid-June onwards and apply to the following engines:
As the table below demonstrates, the fuel savings can amount to as much as £1,390 for F3500 L3 H2 100PS and 125PS models over a 100,000 mile operating cycle.
Full details are as follows:
Current (combined cycle)
Improved (combined cycle)
Estimated Saving (£)
R3500 L3 H2 100/125
F3500 L1 H1 100/125
F3500 L2 H2 100/125
F3500 L3 H2 100/125
*CO2 and fuel figures shown are preliminary. Diesel assumed at £1.44/litre.
CO2 improvements for other engines are scheduled for introduction during the final quarter of 2012.
As a running change to our Movano conversion models, Model Year 2012 rear-wheel drive Crew Cab Tipper variants now feature a single passenger seat. This change does not affect front-wheel drive versions which continue to feature a dual front passengers’ bench seat as standard.
