Vauxhall named UK’s best-selling electric LCV manufacturer

Vauxhall is the UK’s best-selling electric Light Commercial Vehicle (e-LCV) manufacturer, according to the SMMT.

The latest sales and registrations figures published by the SMMT show that Vauxhall’s e-LCV figures reached 1,487 in the first half of the year.

A breakdown of the figures also reveals record sales of 613 for Vauxhall’s Vivaro-e in June, making it the best-selling model not only this month, but for the year-to-date in the e-LCV sector. Vauxhall has sold 19,079 vans year-to-date, up 73% year-on-year.

Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “As a British brand, I’m proud to see Vauxhall is leading the electrification of the UK van market with our multiple award-winning Vivaro-e.

“Vauxhall is all about democratising access to electrified vehicles and within a few months we will have an all-electric version of every van we sell which should further help to reduce in-use emissions and bring the lower running costs and user experience of driving electric to even more businesses in the near future.”

The Vauxhall electric LCV line-up will expand to include the Movano-e large van and the Combo-e compact van. Vauxhall is also adding the Vivaro-e Hydrogen to its all-electric van range during 2022.
