Top-selling UK electric van brand Vauxhall has revealed an updated version of its Combo with new styling and a longer electric range.

New Combo gets Vauxhall's striking 'Vizor front-end styling, which sees a gloss black panel stretch across the van's nose and bookended with ‘Intelli-Lux’ Matrix LED headlights – a class-first in the compact van segment.

That's where the exterior changes stop, though, but the interior gets new connectivity features. Drivers of the newly named entry-level 'Prime' model will have to place their smartphone in a special cradle to control the van’s infotainment panel, while owners of the top-spec Pro model will be able to use a new, larger 10-inch touchscreen with AI functionality, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The Pro also gets a 10-inch digital instrument cluster.

Diesel versions will remain on sale but more importantly the Combo Electric can now go further on a charge. Thanks to a new 50kWh battery, Vauxhall claims a WLTP-tested range of up to 205 miles – 30 miles more than the outgoing Combo Electric. 

Power still comes from a 134bhp electric motor as the old model, and Vauxhall claims a zero to 80 per cent charge can be completed in less than 30 minutes on a 100kW DC rapid charger.

Vauxhall has also slashed the prices of the Combo Electric, which now starts from £28,550 (excluding VAT) – a saving of £4,450 compared to the outgoing van. 

James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “Vauxhall is the UK’s leading electric van brand and this latest iteration of Combo will build on that success thanks to its increased range, bold design and upgraded technology and interior, and we are proud that it will be manufactured at our Ellesmere Port facility here in the UK.”
