Increased battery size for electric Vauxhall Movano

Vauxhall has updated its Movano-e electric van with a new 75kWh battery and electrical system that speeds up charging time.

The new battery replaces the current 70kWh option that was previously available and adds an additional 15 miles to the Movano-e’s range bringing its total claimed milage to 154 miles from a single charge.

The new 75kWh battery is still paired to a 120hp electric motor delivering 260Nm of torque but gets a revised electric architecture which significantly drops the van’s charging times.

The Vauxhall Movano-e will charge from 0-80% using a 22kW AC charger in just four hours – half the time of the previous version which took eight hours. As standard, the Movano-e also comes with 50kW DC rapid charging allowing a 0-80% charge in just one hour.

The price remains unchanged from the previous 70kWh model, with the Movano-e range starting from £57,913.33 (ex VAT) and after the £5,000 contribution from the Government Plug-in Van Grant has been deducted.
