Vauxhall Launches Corsavan ecoFLEX

The first Vauxhall commercial vehicle to feature Start/Stop technology is now available to British dealerships, the carmaker announced today. Dubbed Corsavan ecoFLEX, the car is powered by the new Euro 5-compliant 1.3 CDTi (75PS), which is now able to achieve 70.6 mpg (3.33 l/100km) on the combined cycle over the previous Euro 4 model.

Moreover, the addition of Start/Stop technology and Euro 5 emissions compliance has brought a 14g/km reduction in CO2 emissions, down to 105g.

Torque has also been increased to 190 Nm, while the van was fitted with a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter).

“Drivers who use their vans frequently in congested city streets, where the Corsavan’s Start/Stop function will come into its own, will see the biggest gains in fuel consumption.  With an official urban mpg figure of 58.9mpg,
the Corsavan ecoFLEX 1.3 CDTi (75PS) Start/Stop is more than 18 per cent more economical than the outgoing Euro 4 van without the new technology,” a company statement reads.

However, this is not all the Corsavan ecoFLEX has to offer, as the van has also been fitted with an enhanced starter motor, along with a high performance battery and Electric Power Management system, for efficient re-starts.

An additional water pump keeps the cabin warm in cool weather during the stop phase, and owners have the ability to turn off Start/Stop completely via a dashboard button.

Vauxhall says the Corsavan ecoFLEX Start/Stop models start at GBP 12,231 OTR, which means they add just GBP 220 to the price of a current Euro 5 Corsavan ecoFLEX 1.3 CDTi (75PS).
