The Vauxhall Vivaro and Vivaro Electric have been named ‘Best Medium Van’ and ‘Best Medium E-Van’ respectively at the 2024 Business Vans Awards. The Vauxhall Combo Electric was also highly commended in the ‘Best Small E-Van’ category.

The Business Vans Awards are now in their tenth year and continue to provide a valuable spotlight on the market leaders in the SME sector. The awards are judged by an independent panel of automotive experts and members of the Business Vans editorial team.

Chris Wright, Editor, Business Vans, said: “We believe the Vauxhall Vivaro Electric is one of the best electric vans currently for sale in the UK, able to travel further than any other in its class on a single charge. It’s also very competitive on price versus its rivals.”

Commenting on the Vivaro, Wright said: “One of the only vans made in Britain, the new Vivaro, built at Vauxhall’s Luton plant, comes with smarter looks than its predecessor, more efficiency and loaded with technology.”

James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “As the UK’s best-selling electric van in 2023, the Vivaro Electric is at the forefront of our efforts to electrify Britain’s businesses. Its success at the Business Vans Awards is testament to its popularity with industry experts and customers alike. Following the announcement that limited production of the Vivaro Electric will begin at our Luton plant from the first half of 2025, it’s fantastic to see the model add to its long list of accolades.”

Vauxhall’s entire LCV range has recently been upgraded to feature cutting-edge new powertrains, new technologies and significant price reductions on electric models compared to their predecessors. The New Vauxhall Vivaro Electric is powered by a 75kWh battery paired with a 136PS electric motor. It is capable of up to 217 miles of range (WLTP), while a 5-80% charge can be completed in just 45 minutes from a 100kW rapid charger.

Vauxhall, alongside its sister Stellantis brands, is the only brand to manufacture vans in volume in the UK, having recently announced that production of the Vivaro Electric will commence at its Luton factory during Spring next year. This follows the start of electric van production at Ellesmere Port in 2023 – the UK’s first electric-only volume manufacturing plant – with the Vauxhall Combo Electric.
