Vauxhall Movano-e gets increased battery and faster charging

May 3, 2022

The Vauxhall Movano-e has been updated with a larger 75kWh battery giving van drivers up to 154 miles from a charge.

The new 75kWh battery replaces the current 70kWh option that was previously available and adds an additional 15 miles to the Vauxhall Movano-e’s range.

The new 75kWh battery is still paired to a 120hp electric motor delivering 260Nm of torque. There is currently just one battery option, and a single Dynamic trim level in the Movano-e range.

As well as the new battery, the Movano-e’s electric architecture has been improved resulting in a drop in charging times.

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.
