New Vauxhall Vivaro and eVivaro specification released

 The New Vivaro and Vivaro Electric are available in Prime and Pro trim levels. Both versions are available in two lengths (4.98m and 5.33m), as a Panel Van, Crew Van/Doublecab and a platform-chassis for a variety of body types. Depending on the version, the New Vivaro offers up to 6.6m3 of cargo volume and 1.4 tonnes of payload.

The Vivaro Electric was the UK’s best-selling electric van in 2023 and from Spring 2025 will begin limited production at Vauxhall’s Luton manufacturing plant. Drivers of the latest version will benefit from a range of up to 217 miles (WLTP), an increase of 12 miles over the outgoing model. The New Vivaro Electric’s 75kWh battery can be charged using the standard 7.4kW onboard charger (an 11kW charger is optional), while a 5-80% charge takes just 45 minutes at a 100kW public charger. A unique feature in this segment is the ‘e-Power Take-off Unit’, which can be used to supply smaller tools or fridge units for cooled vans with power from the traction battery.

Internal combustion versions of the New Vivaro are available with either a 1.5-litre (120PS) turbo diesel engine paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, or a 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine in two states of tune – 145PS or 180PS. The former can be combined with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, with the more powerful variant available exclusively as an automatic.

As standard, the New Vivaro is equipped with a 10-inch HD touchscreen with wireless smartphone mirroring and Vauxhall Connect. The infotainment can also be operated through voice recognition and the steering wheel-mounted audio controls. Key driving information is displayed in a 10-inch digital instrument cluster, while on the Vivaro Electric paddle shifters allow drivers to choose from three levels of regenerative braking.

Prime trim includes a wide range of safety and driver assist features, such as a full-height steel bulkhead, rear parking sensors, intelligent speed assistance, lane keep assist and driver attention alert. Pro trim adds Dynamic Surround View, which includes a digital rear view mirror and passenger side camera, blind spot detection, flank guard detection of fixed obstacles, a 180-degree rear parking camera and front and rear parking sensors.

Other key additions on Pro trim include an upgraded infotainment system with satellite navigation, ECO LED headlights and front fog lights. Visual enhancements include 17-inch steel wheels with full-diameter wheel trims (or optional 17-inch alloy wheels), body-colour front and rear bumpers, side-mouldings and door handles. A FlexCargo load-through bulkhead, power-folding door mirrors and fold-flat centre seat backrest providing a flat work surface offer even greater ease of use.

Prices for the New Vivaro start at £28,625 OTR (exc. VAT). The New Vivaro Electric starts from £37,805 OTR (after Plug-in Van Grant, exc. VAT) representing a saving of £2,580 over the outgoing 75kWh model.
