Vauxhall Presents New Movano

Vauxhall has just announced the launch of its second generation Movano. With this model, the automaker will try to increase its market share and strengthen its commercial vehicle offering. The company plans to double annual sales volume of Movano in the UK.

The new Movano has a brand new exterior, but engineers mainly paid attention to the design of the cab. As a result, the cabin is now 5.7 centimeters longer and offers good all around visibility and practical storage compartments. It also features multi-adjustable seats and a height-adjustable steering column so that the driver can find the perfect position behind the wheel.

Movano has a wide range of body variants: panel vans (available in four vehicle lengths and three roof heights), doublecab, platform, chassis and crew cabs as well as combi versions. Customers can choose from four different vehicle lengths that extend to more than four meters of load length This latest generation also includes rear-wheel drive variants, available with both single and twin rear wheels, which gives Movano a gross vehicle weight range of up to 4.5 tonnes.

The new Vauxhall will be powered by a new four cylinder common-rail diesel engines (2.3 CDTi). The engines are available with three power outputs - 74 kW/100 hp, 92 kW/125 hp and 107 kW/146 hp. With an optional 105 litre fuel tank, the operating range is nearly 875 miles (1400 km).

“The commercial vehicle market is of great strategic importance to us,” says Duncan Aldred, Managing Director Vauxhall Motors. “The rejuvenation of our product offer in this important commercial vehicle segment clearly reflects our ambitions to grow in this area and to strengthen our market position. This also includes focused improvement and reinforcement of our sales and dealer network."

“The new Movano plays a key role in our sales plans for 2010. We believe that with its combination of a wide selection of variants and low operating and maintenance costs, the new Movano has what it takes to establish itself at the top of the light commercial vehicle segment”,
he said.
