The new Vivaro is built at Vauxhall’s Luton plant, where nearly one million current Vivaros have rolled off the production line since 2001. Over €200 million has been invested in bringing the new model to production in Bedfordshire, securing 1,200 jobs in the Luton area.
According to Vauxhall, 40% of content for the new Vivaro is sourced in the UK. The plant is also a major exporter with 52% of production destined for European markets.
At the show, Vauxhall will also announce details of new Movano powertrains and Premier Van Centres, its refreshed commercial vehicle aftersales offering.
Premier Van Centres are a network of 100 sites delivering full UK coverage. No appointment is necessary for diagnosis and lead times are no longer than three days. Customers also get a dedicated telephone helpline.
Also on the stand will be UK show debuts for the Combo L2H2 and 4×4 and parcel van conversions ofthe Movano.
Show-goers will also have the chance to meet a football lengend on the stand, thanks to Home Nations’ football sponsorship of Vauxhall.
These include Graham Taylor (former England and Aston Villa manager), Ray Clemence, (former England and Liverpool goalkeeper) and Matt Le Tissier (former England and Southampton midfielder).
‘It’s great to be back at the CV Show,’ said Steve Bryant, Vauxhall’s Commercial Vehicle brand Manager. ‘We are very proud to take the wraps of the new Vivaro for its world debut at its home motor show.’
Vauxhall’s full van range including Corsavan, Combo, New Vivaro and Movano will be on display at the Show.
