The Opel Vivaro-e has arrived in Singapore.
OPEL BLITZ REVIVED
The firm’s first electric commercial vehicle comes with a 75kWh lithium-ion battery that is rated for up to 330km based on the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) test cycle.
That battery in turn feeds a 134bhp motor that puts out a total of 260Nm of torque.
The batteries of the Opel Vivaro-e have been packaged under the loading space of the van, ensuring that cargo capacity is not compromised.
The low positioning of the battery additionally lowers the centre of gravity of the vehicle, which is handy when you’re rushing to make your deliveries.
The payload of the Opel Vivaro-e is said to be just shy of that of a regular 2-litre turbo-diesel Vivaro at 1000kg. Cargo dimensions meanwhile stand at 1258mm by 2435mm by 1220mm.
OPEL VIVARO-E: EASY DELIVERY
Wide rear and sliding side doors here give unrestricted access to the cargo area or passenger compartment. And powered sliding side doors are also available as an option, providing easy access when hands are full by requiring just a movement of the foot to activate.
And as you manoeuvre around loading bays, ultrasonic sensors on the front and rear aprons of the Opel Vivaro-e will warn you of obstacles when parking and monitor the van’s side blind spot.
A 180-degree rear view camera will also support driving in and out of tight spaces.
There’s a 7.0-inch infotainment system in the van. It supports smart phone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Opel Vivaro-e will take only one hour and 30 minutes to fully charge its battery via a 50kW direct current charger. Maximum charging speed via alternating current meanwhile, is 11kW.
The battery is covered by an eight-year/160,000km guarantee.
