Following the successful launch of the panel van variant earlier this year, Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles has expanded its New Movano range to include Core Conversions with a variety of lengths and chassis configurations.

Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles will give the Movano Core Conversion range its UK premier at Interbuild Onsite, the UK’s number one exhibition for the building trade, in Birmingham this week.  The expanded range of variants includes dropsides, tippers and box vans in addition to the existing chassis versions with both single and crew cabs in three lengths.

Dropside variants will be available initially in the 3.5 tonne gross vehicle weight category with front or rear-wheel drive. The single and crew cab versions come in three lengths (FWD L2 and L3 and RWD L2, L3 and L4). Depending on the variant, the 2.04m wide load floors are available in four lengths that range between 3.2m and 4.45m, with payloads up to 2130kg. Standard features include aluminium side and tail boards, cabin protection with ladder rack and a resin-coated wooden load floor.

The new Movano can also be ordered as a 3.5 tonne gross vehicle weight tipper in two lengths (L2 and L3 variants), as a chassis or crew cab variant with payload up to 1122kg. Standard equipment includes a steel load floor with integrated load securing points, cabin protection with ladder holders as well as aluminium side and tail board with under-run bars.  The extensive list of options also includes steel side and tail boards and a rear ladder rack.  Both Tipper and Dropside variants feature Scattolini bodies.

The new Movano will also be available as box body which is constructed using stable, lightweight aluminium frames and synthetic panels for a high quality exterior. Two sizes are available with 20m3 and 22m3 of load volume that can carry a payload of up to 1935kg depending on variant.  Standard equipment includes an anti-skid floor covering and aluminium lashing rails around the interior.  Options include wind deflectors and a Luton head.

All Core Conversions are based upon the chassis and crew cab chassis models announced earlier this year. These models feature a rugged ladder chassis with multiple function points to enable easy and secure installations of bodies by third-party convertors.

The new generation of 2.3 CDTI four-cylinder common-rail diesel engines (100PS, 125PS and 146PS) ensures powerful low-speed torque, lively performance as well as high fuel consumption and low emissions.

All New Movano Core Conversions come with a three year manufacturer’s warranty that covers both the vehicle chassis as well as the conversion.

The Core Conversion range will be available to order from retailers in late November with pricing announced at the same time.
