Vauxhall has become the UK’s best-selling electric Light Commercial Vehicle (e-LCV) manufacturer according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

The SMMT revealed that Vauxhall’s electric Vivaro van is the country’s best-selling e-LCV, with the company selling 1,560 e-LCVs overall so far this year.

The manufacturer is looking to add its first hydrogen LCV to the range for 2022 and has committed to electrifying its entire range of vehicles by 2024 and offering only fully electric vehicles (EVs) by 2028.

Paul Willcox, Managing Director at Vauxhall, said: “As a British brand, I’m proud to see Vauxhall is leading the electrification of the UK van market.

“Vauxhall is all about democratising access to electrified vehicles and within a month we will have an all-electric version of every van we sell which should further help to reduce in-use emissions and bring the lower running costs and user experience of driving electric to even more businesses in the near future.”
