Autocar - - NEWS -

VAUX­HALL HAS RE­VEALED the new Vi­varo Life, the MPV ver­sion of its pop­u­lar van, ahead of its of­fi­cial launch at the Brus­sels mo­tor show. It will go on sale in Fe­bru­ary, with an all-elec­tric ver­sion fol­low­ing in 2021.

The Vi­varo Life will be built along­side the van ver­sion at Vaux­hall’s Lu­ton plant, fur­ther se­cur­ing the fu­ture of that fa­cil­ity. It will be of­fered in two lengths – 4.95m and 5.30m – although both will have a wheel­base of 3.28m and can ac­com­mo­date up to nine seats.

The Life ver­sion fea­tures a two-piece panoramic roof, an open­ing tail­gate win­dow, mov­able leather seats and elec­tri­cally pow­ered slid­ing doors. It will also be of­fered in Lounge spec, with mas­sag­ing front seats ahead of two fur­ther seats, each with a 48cm-thick seat cush­ion.

With the rear seats re­moved, the Vi­varo Life has a lug­gage ca­pac­ity of 3397 litres.

The 2021 elec­tric Vi­varo Life will join an elec­tric ver­sion of the van and is the lat­est step in the elec­tri­fi­ca­tion plan of Psagroup-owned Vaux­hall.
