    Powerful: 100kW (136hp) electric motor with 260Nm torque

    Easy to use: variety of charging options, payment via “Free2Move Services” app

    Comfortable: check state-of-charge or programme charging times via “myOpel” app

    Safety for professionals: driver assistance systems enhance protection

 



Opel is now taking orders for the new, all-electric Vivaro-e, with prices starting at €35,650 (all prices in Germany, excluding VAT) – excluding locally applicable bonuses. Deliveries of the emissions-free panel van will begin this year.




Opel Vivaro-e customers can choose between two sizes of lithium ion battery, depending on their needs: with 75kWh for up to 330km or, for those who have a less intensive daily use of their vehicle, with 50kWh and a range of up to 230 kilometres, both in the WLTP1 cycle. Regardless of battery-size, the Vivaro-e enables professionals to benefit from uncompromised door-to-door mobility well beyond the “last mile”.



“The Vivaro-e is Opel’s first electrified light commercial vehicle”, said Andreas Marx, the head of Opel Germany. “Independent of the size of the battery, our new van always transports goods from door to door emissions-free – far beyond the ‘last mile’ and without compromises on practicability. The Vivaro-e represents an attractive offer on the growing LCV market.”



The Vivaro-e – the first all-electric commercial vehicle from the German automotive manufacturer – is available now from just €35,650 in the price list. Buyers of electrified vans also benefit from the German government’s financial support for innovative technologies following the corona pandemic. The environmental bonus for battery-electric vehicles has thus risen to up to €9,000 until December 31, 2020.




All versions of the Vivaro-e Cargo (S, M, L) in every equipment line (in Germany: Selection, Edition, Elegance) will receive the full environmental bonus of €9,000 for electric vehicles with a net list price of up to €40,000), as soon as they are listed by the Federal Office for Economics and Export Control. The Vivaro-e Cargo S Selection is therefore available from only €26,650 net. The innovation support for vehicles with a net price of more than €40,000 is €7,500.



The Vivaro-e features a payload of up to 1,275kg, which is almost as high as the Cargo S 2.0-litre diesel versions (maximum payload 1,405 kg). The e-van is also the only electrified vehicle from an automobile manufacturer available with an accessory trailer hitch that allows a maximum towing capacity of 1,000kg2.



Opel offers the Vivaro-e in three lengths – 4.6 metres (S), 4.95m, (M) and 5.30m (L) – and several body versions, including panel van, crew cab and platform cab. Most versions of the Vivaro-e are only 1.90m high and can therefore enter underground parking. A wide range of assistance systems and advanced technologies are optionally available, including a 180-degree rear-view camera and multimedia infotainment. Useful features such as sensor-controlled sliding doors and FlexCargo load-through provide additional functionality.



With 100kW (136hp) and 260 Nm of torque from the electric propulsion system, the Vivaro‑e offers higher performance than most electric commercial vehicles. The electronically controlled maximum speed of 130 km/h enables Autobahn speed while also preserving the electric range. A sophisticated regenerative braking system, which recovers the energy produced under braking or deceleration, further increases efficiency.



The battery located under the load compartment additionally lowers the centre of gravity, which benefits the cornering and wind stability of the Vivaro-e even when it is fully loaded, while also contributing to higher driving pleasure.







Electric mobility made easy: variety of charging options, “OpelConnect” e-services




Fulfilling to perfection its role as dependable partner for large and small fleets, artisans and businesses, the Vivaro-e is as easy to charge as it is to use. Via wall box, fast charging or even a cable for charging from a domestic plug socket if necessary, every Vivaro-e is ready for a variety of charging options.



Using a 100kW DC public charging station, charging of the 50kWh battery to 80 per cent state-of-charge takes around only 30 minutes (around 45 minutes for the 75kWh battery). Opel offers on-board chargers that ensure that charging times are as fast as possible and that the battery (covered by an eight-year/160,000km guarantee) has a long life. Depending on the market and infrastructure, the Vivaro-e features a powerful three-phase 11kW on-board charger or a single-phase 7.4kW on-board charger as standard.



The offer of cables and wall boxes varies according to the energy infrastructure of each market, ensuring that Vivaro-e customers can find and make use of a charging station almost anywhere.



In order to make using the Vivaro-e even more practical, “OpelConnect”, the “myOpel” app and “Free2Move Services” – the mobility brand of Groupe PSA – offer special solutions for electric vehicles. The services are accessible via apps.



The “Charge My Car” function from the “Free2Move Services” app enables access to more than 140,000 charging points throughout Europe, including payment. To make it even easier for customers to choose the right charging point, the “Free2Move Services” app makes a preselection based on the distance to the charging point, the charging speed and the current charging price of the possible public charging options.



With the “OpelConnect” e-remote control functions, customers can use their smartphones to check the battery’s state-of-charge or programme air conditioning and charging times.



In addition, the “OpelConnect” portfolio ranges from eCall and breakdown calls to numerous other services, such as vehicle status and information. LIVE Navigation3 provides online traffic information in real time.






A BEV for all tasks: multiple versions, up to 6.6m3 cargo volume



Opel has tailored the Vivaro-e for numerous customer needs, with payloads of up to 1,275kg and gross vehicle weights ranging from 2,800 to 3,100kg. The particularly compact 4.60-metre S closes the gap between the van and the transporter segments. With a turning circle of only 11.8m, the Vivaro-e is very agile in tight spaces.



Thanks to the practical FlexCargo load-through, the 4.6m3-cargo capacity of the S increases to 5.1m3. This enables transportation of objects up to 3.23m in length. The 4.95m and 5.30m M and L have maximum cargo capacities of 5.8 and 6.6m3 respectively. Ladders or panels up to 3.58 or 3.93m in length can be stowed securely, while the multitude of storage areas in the cockpit (which features an electric parking brake as standard) comfortably accommodate numerous smaller items.



The Vivaro-e’s wide rear and sliding side doors give unrestricted access to the cargo area or passenger compartment. Especially practical are the electric sliding side doors that open automatically – a movement of the foot is all it takes to open the doors from outside.





Assistance systems galore: from Automatic Emergency Braking to Drowsiness Alert



Like its siblings with internal combustion engines, the Vivaro-e offers an unusually wide range of driver assistance systems that enhance professionals’ safety. In addition to a Head Up Display, the Vivaro-e includes Lane Keep Assist, Extended Traffic Sign Recognition, Drowsiness Alert, Forward Collision Alert and Automatic Emergency Braking.



Ultrasonic sensors in the Vivaro-e’s front and rear aprons warn the driver of obstacles when parking and monitor the side blind spot. Depending on the equipment level, the 180 degrees rear-view camera image appears on the seven-inch touchscreen.



The Multimedia Radio and Multimedia Navi infotainment systems of the Vivaro-e come with the large 7.0-inch touchscreen. Both feature phone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
