Why we love…the Vauxhall Vivaro’s clipboard

The Vivaro is a mobile office! Every once in a while, a medium-sized van has a feature that makes you love it that little bit more…and this time it's the Vauxhall Vivaro and its clipboard. Vanarama's Tom Roberts reports.

Yeah, you read the headline right…this is a blog about why the Vauxhall Vivaro'sclipboard on the central cabin armrest is a stroke of genius - it's no wonder we're up to 250,000 built in the UK and counting...!

I love it when a van manufacturer adds something like this to one of their vans. It's easy to dismiss it as a gimmick, but I've spoken to countless customers who say it's turned out to be one of the most useful bits of kit in the Vivaro – and really adds to the whole "mobile-office" feel!

Get your clipboards out!

At some point during the Vivaro's design process, someone asked the question: "Where can we put a clipboard in this bad boy?"

After some murmuring, another bright spark probably answered: "What about making it an integral part of the arm rest…and it clips in an out…and we'll make a mounting slot so you can have it standing there while you drive?" And that's how it actually happened (or not).


You wouldn't believe the number of users who say this is one of the best bits about the Vivaro – aside from its generous load space and roomy, comfy cabin – they say it's great for holding written directions, making more space on the central arm rest if they need to do some work...and at the end of the day it's just a really handy thing to have in general, right?

I mean, who doesn't love a clipboard?
