Vauxhall’s Combo Life and Vivaro Life are to go exclusively electric as the brand looks to accelerate its move to full electrification.
The decision comes as Vauxhall looks to step up its plans to offer an electrified variant across its entire model line-up by 2024 and be fully electric by 2028.
Following on from the price reductions across all Corsa-e and Mokka-e models, Vauxhall has repositioned the pricing of its all-electric Combo-e Life and Vivaro-e Life Combi models in light of the recent changes to the Government’s Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG)
Later this year, Vauxhall’s Ellesmere Port plant will become the first Stellantis plant to produce a solely battery-electric model including the Combo-e Life and Combo-e van, for both domestic and export markets.
Paul Willcox, managing director at Vauxhall, said: “Vauxhall has set out a clear ambition to go electric only by 2028 and this is another step on that journey. We are focused on ensuring that the benefits of going electric are available, and affordable, to as many British motorists as possible.”
All existing customer orders for Combo Life and Vivaro Life will be honoured and a limited number of certain third party specialist conversions, such as Combo Life Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle, will continue. The revised pricing on Combo-e Life and Vivaro-e Life Combi is in lieu of previous customer offers.
Vauxhall will offer an electrified variant across its entire model line-up by 2024 and will have a fully electric vehicle range, of cars and vans, by 2028 – seven years ahead of the UK Government deadline.
