Vauxhall has dropped the ‘e’ from its battery-powered models and is now spelling it out for customers by calling them ‘Electric’ instead.
The move covers both the car and van ranges, including the best-selling Corsa and Vivaro models, and it is thought it will help improve buyer recognition that these models – which are also available with petrol and diesel engines – are actually 100% battery powered.
Meanwhile, the Vivaro Electric remains the UK’s best-selling electric Light Commercial Vehicle according to the latest registration figures published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
The company has now sold 3,254 in the first ten months of the year. The success of this model has helped Vauxhall remain the country’s best-selling e-LCV manufacturer so far this year, as well as being the second biggest-selling LCV manufacturer overall.
