The success of Vivaro Electric helped Vauxhall increase its total LCV market share in September to 11.1%
Luton – The award-winning Vauxhall Vivaro Electric remains the UK’s best-selling electric Light Commercial Vehicle (e-LCV), according to the latest registration figures published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
The Vivaro Electric remains the UK’s best-selling electric van with 3,010 sold in the first nine months of the year. The Vivaro Electric’s smaller sibling, the Combo Electric, was also the best-selling e-LCV in its segment.
The success of the Combo Electric and the Vivaro Electric ranges have helped Vauxhall remain the country’s best-selling e-LCV manufacturer so far this year, as well as increased Vauxhall’s total LCV market share to 11.1% for the year.
James Taylor, Acting Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “As more businesses and fleets look towards electric vans to reduce their overheads and environmental footprint, it’s great to see so many choose the Vauxhall e-LCV range. Vauxhall is one of the few brands in the country able to offer fleets a fully electric van across its entire LCV model line-up.”
The Vivaro Electric has a long list of awards under its belt, including ‘Medium Van of the Year’ at the What Van? Awards 2022 and ‘Best Medium Electric Van’ at the Driving Electric Awards 2022. The Vivaro Electric was also voted ‘International Van of the Year 2021’, alongside multiple other top honors.
With a WLTP range of up to 205 miles and a maximum payload of up to 1,226kg, it is at the forefront of Vauxhall’s commitment to electrification, as the brand continues its electric vehicle expansion with the goal of offering an electrified variant across its model line-up by 2024, and to offer only fully electric cars and vans in the UK by 2028.
