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.
