Customers looking for an emission-free electric vehicle rely on the new Opel Vivaro-e electric light commercial vehicle. The Opel Vivaro-e van was the best-selling electric vehicle in its class in Germany in the first quarter of 2022. Its great popularity has helped Opel increase its market share in its home market's increasingly important electric light commercial vehicles to almost 19 percent in the first three months of the year. In Great Britain, the Vauxhall Vivaro-e was even the best-selling electric light commercial vehicle ever in March and held this top position for the entire quarter. Year on year, Vauxhall increased its market share for electric LCVs in Great Britain from 19 to 22.7 percent. Moreover, Opel and Vauxhall are among the few manufacturers that can already offer customers electric variants of all models in their commercial vehicle range.
"The segment of electric light commercial vehicles is increasing and is of great importance for the entire industry. As more and more corporations focus on reducing the operating costs and emissions of their fleets, sales of electric LCVs will continue to increase in the future. We are proud that the award-winning Vivaro-e is leading the way. Our decision to make battery-electric models from the Opel Combo-e to the Opel Vivaro-e electric van to the Opel Movano-e available early was exactly the right one," says Opel CEO Uwe Hochschurtz.
