Vauxhall rolls out Ecoflex on vans
02 February 2011
Vauxhall is to roll out Ecoflex models across its whole range of vans.
The new Ecoflex Commercial Vehicles range includes two new Luton-built Vivaros, a 2.0-litre CDTi 90hp and a 2.0 115hp version, both emitting CO2 of 185g/km. These new eco middleweights join the Corsavan Ecox Start/Stop, which came on board late last year and emits 105g/km CO2.
Moving up the weight range, the Movano Ecoflex, based on the 3.3-tonne L2H2 2.3 CDTI 100hp model, will deliver CO2 output of 202g/km. It hosts energy saving features such as manually-operated windows, door mirrors and door locking, a tyre repair kit instead of a spare wheel and a 56mph speed limiter as standard.
Vauxhall claimed Ecoflex Astravan and Combo would deliver CO2 emissions of 130g/km and 134g/km respectively.
Vauxhall's commercial vehicle brand manager, Steve Bryant said: "Vauxhall is the first manufacturer to offer an eco product for each model in its range."
With green credentials rising up the agenda of customer priorities, he added: "The Ecoflex badge clearly identifies to our customers the lowest CO2 model for each vehicle in our range,"
The full line-up of Ecoflex vans is available to order at Vauxhall dealerships from February.
