A new titan from Vauxhall – the Movano Luton – was unveiled at the show, boasting 17.2 cubic metres of loadspace and a payload of 1,385kg.
The new van adds to Vauxhall’s list of core conversions which include crew-cabs, dropsides and tippers and thus is covered by the standard three-year/100,000 mile warranty.
The Movano Luton boasts an aluminium body produced by Aluvan of Belgium and comes with a 2.5CDti engine boasting either 100bhp, 120bhp or 146bhp.
Standard specification includes reinforced rear suspension, driver’s airbag and remote central locking.
An electronically-operated ratcliffe tail-lift is an added option.
Prices range from £23,135 to £25,535 ex-VAt and the tail-lift adds £2,750.
Meanwhile taking centre stage on the Vauxhall stand was a trio of ‘black edition’ sporty concept vans – Corsavan, Astravan and Vivaro.
They boasted extras such as metallic paint, alloy wheels and leather seats – all extras available from Vauxhall dealers.
Vauxhall has also unveiled a new service and maintenance package for all its commercial vehicles.
For £29.99 per month for Corsavan, Combo and Astravan and £31.99 per month for Vivaro and Movano, fleets get free routine servicing plus any repairs to items such as brakes, clutches, steering joints, shock absorbers, exhausts and wiper blades.
