Vauxhall adds petrol engine options to New Combo and Corsavan ranges

Article by Anita Panait, on May 18, 2012

Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles is expanding its New Combo lineup to include models powered by a new fuel-efficient 1.4 petrol engine.  The new Combo engine --  a 95PS Euro 5-compliant powerhouse -- will power vehicles that have L1H1 and L2H1 body types. The Combo engine features Start/Stop technology, allowing it to emit carbon dioxide at levels of 163g/km and 40.3mpg combined on the short wheelbase model.

Meawhile, Vauxhall’s Corsavan range is now offering a new powerhouse option, a 1.2 petrol unit gifted with the Start/Stop technology.  The new Corsavan engine offers CO2 emission of only 119g/km and 55.4mpg combined. This new option offers a saving of 5g/km over the standard 1.2 engine.

According to Steve Bryant, Brand Manager of Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles, the new petrol engine offers for the New Combo and Corsavan ranges was in response to increased customer demand, adding that there are Vauxhall customers who wanted to fit their units with a petrol engine in response to high fuel prices and operator's specific working environment.

Headquartered in Luton, United Kingdom, Vauxhall is the leading van maker in the country with total manufacturing volume of over 70,000 units. In 2011, the company posted a 28.05 percent increase in annual van sales to 11,436 units.

The company’s success in 2011 was due to its sales deals to customers, which include four years zero per cent APR, four years' free servicing, four years' warranty and four years' breakdown assistance. The company continues to ride on its success and remains the top-selling van maker in the retail market for March and April.
