About Vauxhall

ABOUT OUR COMPANY

VAUXHALL MOTORS
MANAGING DIRECTOR: STEPHEN NORMAN
YEAR CREATED: 1903

Vauxhall Motors started manufacturing cars in 1903. Over 100 years later, as one of Britain’s most familiar and loved automotive manufacturers, its philosophy remains the same: building vehicles that are relevant for all.

From the compact Corsa, through the award-winning Astra to the range-topping Insignia Grand Sport, Vauxhall Motors has a car for every need. The affordable VIVA and stylish ADAM make city driving a pleasure, while the Crossland, Mokka and Grandland ‘X’ SUVs mix practicality and ruggedness. The Cascada convertible offers open-top motoring for four, and the Zafira Tourer practicality for up to seven.

Complementing its car range, Vauxhall Motors is also the UK’s largest manufacturer of Light Commercial Vehicles, keeping businesses moving with a broad range comprising the small and efficient Combo, the British-built Vivaro and the capacious Movano.

With manufacturing plants at Ellesmere Port, home of the Astra, and Luton where the Vivaro is produced, Vauxhall Motors’ family of employees is responsible for maintaining the company’s position at the heart of British Motoring Culture.

On 1st August 2017, Vauxhall Motors and its sister company Opel became part of Groupe PSA.
