Vauxhall's Vivaro Ecoflex large panel van looks set to become a common choice with van buyers focused on fuel economy. This growth in popularity comes after the Vauxhall Vivaro achieved a huge 60% improvement in its official fuel economy, in the latest Fleet World magazine MPG Marathon.
Those thinking the MPG challenge is just carried out on fuel efficient roads are wrong. The 350 mile route through the Cotswold countryside takes in a combination of A roads, B roads and motorway and is the longest-running economy driving event testing both vans and cars.
This amazing result for the Vauxhall Vivaro is made even more spectacular by the fact that it achieved not only the best MPG improvement for a commercial vehicle, but also overall for cars, as well as vans.
www.vanarama.com is really excited about the Vivaro's win, as it demonstrates what a frugal van the Vivaro is. With rising fuels costs, fuel economy will become more and more important as small businesses choose their commercial vehicles. In fact, Vanarama is putting its money where its mouth is and following the Vauxhall Vivaro's success, is anticipating selling
£1 million worth more of the model than last year, to fuel-savvy van buyers.
