1.9.2021Orders open for Vauxhall’s electric Combo-e van
Vauxhall is now able to offer fleets and business customers an electric van across its entire LCV line-up. The company's new, electric compact van - the Combo-e - is now on sale, as it makes its global debut today at the Commercial Vehicle Show.
As with Vauxhall’s other fully electric LCV models, the Combo-e is exempt from current ultra-low emission and congestion charge payments. The zero emissions-in-use powertrain also allows businesses to save significantly on company van tax, with a 0% Benefit-in-Kind tax rate.
The Combo-e will be manufactured at Vauxhall’s historic Ellesmere Port plant from later in 2022. It joins the Vivaro-e and Movano-e in Vauxhall’s e-LCV range, as the brand continues to expand its electric vehicle offering with the goal of selling only fully electric cars and vans in the UK by 2028.
“With the Combo-e now sale alongside the Vivaro-e and Movano-e, Vauxhall customers now have even greater choice when it comes to finding an electric van that suits their needs,” said Paul Willcox, Managing Director at Vauxhall.
“The Combo-e is a fantastic addition to our e-LCV line-up, full of practical features and technology that we’re confident will make it the standout choice in the small van sector.”
With a maximum payload of up to 800kg and up to of 4.4m3 of load space, the Combo-e is also a highly practical compact van, ideally suited for trade professionals. The electric van is powered by a 50kWh battery and delivers a range of 171 miles (WLTP) and features a single electric motor producing 100kW (136PS). Using a 100kW charger, the Combo-e is capable of charging from 0-80% in just 30 minutes.
As standard, the Combo-e comes fitted with a 7.4kW on-board charger and charging cable, allowing it to be charged via a wallbox in seven hours and 30 minutes. An 11kW on-board charger is available as an extra cost option and brings the charging time down to five hours.
Prices for the Combo-e start at £25,238.33 (excluding VAT, including the Plug-in Van Grant) with deliveries set to begin later this year. The van is currently making its global debut at the Commercial Vehicle Show, which runs until 2nd September.
