From March, all Combo, Vivaro and Movano models registered will move to two-year service intervals. Combo’s service interval will be two years or 21,000 miles (18,000 miles for petrol variants) or oil life quality monitor warning, whichever is sooner. The Movano and British-built Vivaro will be two years or 25,000 miles or oil life quality monitor warning, whichever is sooner.
‘Depending on mileage, the savings in service maintenance and repair across a large mixed fleet could be significant,’ said Richard Collier, Vauxhall’s national commercial vehicle and B2B sales manager.
In addition, Collier announced the extension of the ecoFLEX range to include low CO2 Movano panel van variant. The manufacturer was the first to introduce an eco-model across each van in its range when it launched ecoFLEX commercial vehicles back in 2011.
With fuel-saving Start/Stop technology as standard, the new Movano ecoFLEX 2.3CDTi is available in two power outputs (100PS and 125PS) and wheelbases (L2H2 and L3H2).
The model achieves a combined fuel economy of 37.2mpg and CO2 emissions of 199g/km, a 5% over the outgoing model.
According to Vauxhall, over the course of 80,000 miles, Movano ecoFLEX operators could save more than £700 per vehicle in fuel costs.
