Movano

The new Movano has a powerful and distinctive front end design. Vauxhall trademark elements like the horizontal chrome bar – housing the largest Vauxhall Griffin on any vehicle in the company’s history – and the signature crease on the front hood, mark the new Movano as a clear brand representative.

Special attention has been paid to the interior design of the cab. The result is a cabin that is 5.7 centimetres longer than that of the outgoing model and boasts high quality, durable materials and surfaces, excellent all around visibility and a host of practical storage compartments. It also features multi-adjustable seats and a height-adjustable steering column ensuring every driver can achieve a comfortable driving position.

The new Vauxhall Movano provides one of the widest ranges of body variants on the commercial vehicle market, offering a model for every potential customer. The range includes panel vans (available in four vehicle lengths and three roof heights), doublecab, platform, chassis and crew cabs as well as combi versions. Vehicles are also well-equipped for special conversions or enhancements, and some key versions – like dropside and tipper – will be available ex-works.

Four different vehicle lengths are available that extend to more than four meters of load length and a higher load volume, with 17 cubic meters in the longest L4 version. 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.

For the first time, the new Movano offers rear-wheel drive versions in addition to front-wheel drive, thanks to its modular platform. The RWD variants give added traction and increased towing capability. Twin rear wheels are available in panel van, chassis and crew cab formats. Twin rear wheels are standard on 4.5 tonne gross vehicle weight models and optional for 3.5 tonne FWD models.

The cargo areas of the panel van variants offer among the best in class accessibility, loading ease, standing height and cargo capacity, with load volume of up to 17 cubic meters and a maximum load area length of up to 4.4 meters. Gross vehicle weight extends up to 4.5 tonnes and maximum payload up to 2.5 tonnes depending on body variant. New Movano is also an excellent towing vehicle, able to tow up to 3.0 tonnes. Maximum gross train weight is now 7.5 tonnes.

A new family of four cylinder common-rail diesel engines (2.3 CDTi) provide low fuel consumption and emissions. The engines are available with three power outputs – 74 kW/100 PS, 92 kW/125 PS and 107 kW/146 PS. With an optional 105 litre fuel tank, the operating range is nearly 875 miles.

Despite a lower engine capacity than the outgoing model, the 2.3 CDTi will deliver higher levels of torque across the rev range (including at lower revs), emit less CO2 and give greater mpg. A chain-driven valve train will keep maintenance costs down.

All variants come with six-speed manual transmission. The automated Tecshift transmission is available as an option on the 125 PS and 146 PS engines. All three engines meet Euro 4 emissions standards but can be ordered with a diesel particulate filter to meet Euro 5.

An additional, particularly economic variant with low CO2 emissions will be added to the range in the second half of 2010.

In line with the recent trend in its passenger car range, the new Vauxhall Movano features engines with smaller capacity but greater engine power and torque than the model it replaces.

Customers can choose from three 2.3 CDTi four-cylinder diesel units with varying power outputs, each combining strong performance with among best in class figures for fuel consumption and emissions. With power outputs of the new engines at 74 kW/100 PS, 92 kW/125 PS and 107 kW/146 PS, this is an engine range scaled to meet a broad spectrum of customer requirements.

Movano has been engineered for exemplary durability with particular attention having been paid to the brake and clutch components. In addition an oil change is not required before 25,000 miles ( or once a year) while the coolant is good for 100,000 miles. Total service life of the new Movano is 250,000 miles. Maintenance and wear and tear costs alone are 24 percent lower than its predecessor.

Fuel consumption is of course a critical part of any van’s overall running costs; new Movano’s consumption starts at 35.3mpg for the 3.5t L2H2 100PS version with 211 g/km CO2.
