Vauxhalls Increases Commercial Vehicles Sales in July

Vauxhall is the UK’s leading manufacturer of commercial vehicles, with over 77,000 units being rolled off the production line at its plants in Luton, Bedfordshire and Ellesmere Port, Cheshire last year. However, this wasn’t enough for them, as they also topped the sales charts in July, with deliveries increased by 37 percent compared to the same month of last year.

The figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders show the UK-built Vivaro was also number one in the highly competitive retail medium van segment, with sales up by 88 per cent on last year’s month of July.

The results are also partly due to the launch of the new Vivaro ecoFlex vans in January, which include two new Vivaro vans, both equipped with a 2.0-liter CDTi diesel engine that develops either 90 hp or 115 hp. The model has excellent eco-credentials, only emitting 185 grams of CO2 per kilometers, making it one of the most environmentally friendly CVs on the market today.

The Astravan and Combo also have ecoFlex versions, while the much bigger Movaro sports a L2H2 2.3 CDTI (100 hp) that offers a best-in-class CO2 output of 202 grams per kilometer.

Vauxhall’s retail van sales were buoyed by the offer of four years’ 0% APR finance, four years’ free servicing, a four year warranty and four years’ AA cover.

“July has proved to be yet another big month for Vauxhall van sales,” said Richard Collier, Vauxhall’s National Commercial Vehicle and B2B Sales Manager. “I am pleased that we are number one at retail for the fourth time this year.  It’s great news for Vauxhall that there’s still strong demand for high quality vans with low running costs and excellent manufacturer support.”
