For many years the Renault commercial vehicles came from Renault and Fiat. Soon the entire range of Opel models will be based on Peugeot and Citroën. The Opel Movano is a new addition to the portfolio based on the Peugeot Boxer or Citroen Jumper and essentially adopts their design. The market launch is at the end of the year.
The Opel Movano's customers can choose from four lengths (L1-4) and three heights (H1-3) for the panel van. The maximum loading volume ranges from eight to 17 cubic meters. The doors of the H3 version are 2.03 meters high - best in class. The gross vehicle weight ranges from 2.8 to 4.0 tonnes, the maximum payload a maximum of 2.1 tonnes. The loading sill is at best just 49.4 centimeters, the loading width between the wheelhouses is 1.42 meters, and that between the side walls is 1.87 meters.
The standard cabin seats three people in a row; the optionally available double cabin offers four additional passengers the second row of seats. The Opel Movano extends the range of platform chassis with various cabin configurations. In addition, the Movano van is suitable as a basis for conversions and superstructures from tippers to flatbed trucks to campers.
On the one hand, the drive is a 2.2-liter diesel engine with 120 to 165 hp, 300 to 370 Newton meters of torque, and a six-speed gearbox. On the other hand, Opel will also offer an Opel Movano-e. It has an output of 90 kW (122 PS), is limited to a top speed of 110 km / h, and provides a WLTP standard range of 117 or 224 kilometers, depending on whether the stock battery with 37 kWh capacity or the optional 70 kWh battery is installed. In both cases, the battery pack is installed on the vehicle floor between the axles so that functionality and loading volume remains unaffected.
With now three modern vehicles, all available as fully electric versions, Opel is making the most current and most competitive range in its history in the commercial vehicle segment. As a result, it is particularly able to put Volkswagen in its place.
