Vauxhall reveals Movano update

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Van Expert?

 

Vauxhall has revealed the first details of its updated Movano van, including new safety features and a payload of up to 2,110kg.

The new Movano, which is scheduled to go on sale this summer, has several safety features available for the first time. These include a rear vision camera system, which provides a live feed to a seven-inch touchscreen and can help to detect cyclists and pedestrians, and a blind spot monitoring system that has ultrasonic sensors to detect objects in the blind spot, while the driver is alerted to this with LED indicators in the corresponding mirror.

A lane departure warning system, which sounds an alarm if the driver wanders from their lane, is also available.

Vauxhall have also added a side-wind assistant feature as standard, to help in windy conditions. In such weather, the Electronic Stability Programme is automatically activated to improve handling.

The Movano, the largest of the Vauxhall range, will be available in four different lengths and three heights, with a maximum payload of up to 2,110kg and 17m3 of cargo. In certain configurations, the van will be able to transport up to five euro pallets.

Behind the wheel, drivers can benefit from the Navi 5.0 IntelliLink Pro infotainment system, which is available for the first time on new Movano. The system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, with the interior featuring a wireless charging point for smartphones.

Drivers can also take the option of comfort seats, which have adjustable lumbar support. An air-conditioned seat can also be ordered.

Meanwhile in the cargo area, the Movano has integral LED lighting and new handles on the side-walls and pillars to make loading easier.

Prices and specs will be announced closer to the launch.
