Opel Vivaro-e battery-electric light commercial vehicle is now available in the flatbed truck version. The latest addition joins the Cargo panel van, Combi people carrier, crew cab and floor cab, the emissions-free Vivaro-e, all with 50-kWh or 75-kWh lithium-ion battery.

Based on the Opel Vivaro-e floor cab with a single row of seats and a wheelbase of 3.27 metres, the versatile flatbed truck offers a versatile platform measuring 2.44 x 1.83 x 0.40 m (L x W x H) manufactured in high quality. The 40-cm-high aluminium tailgate and sidewalls fold down for easy use; the robust steel frame with high torsional rigidity is protected by a 10-year anti-perforation warranty, thanks to hot-dip galvanisation.

Opel Vivaro-e: flat floor and easy loading

Also, the floor of the platform is completely flat, without encroaching wheel-arches. Access is further
enhanced by the integrated step on the inside of the tailgate. Rocker panels below the platform complete the high-end appearance. In fact, the lithium-ion battery is packaged under the cargo space in such a way that the Vivaro-e requires no trade-offs in cargo capacity. A sophisticated regenerative braking system,
which recovers the energy produced under braking or deceleration, further increases efficiency.

The Vivaro-e (here’s a news about the fuel cell version of the van) can be charged via wall box, fast charging or even a cable for charging from a domestic plug socket if necessary. Using a 100 kW DC public charging station, charging of the 75-kWh battery to 80 per cent state-of-charge takes around only 45 minutes.
