Vauxhall has revealed its new version of the Vivaro – which will come as with an electric powertrain from 2020.

To be built at Vauxhall’s Luton plant, the Vivaro is based on PSA Group’s EMP2 platform that also is the chassis for the new Peugeot 508 and Citroën Berlingo.

Offered in two body lengths, 4.95m and 5.30m, there are also three body styles for the medium van – panel van, doublecab and a platform chassis.

The new Vivaro can also be fitted with automatic sliding doors for the first time, with users only needing to wave their foot near the sensors to access either of the side openings.
