Vinci Energies Building Solutions has taken delivery of the first of 30 Vivaro-e Cargo from Opel in Rüsselsheim. They are the first electric light commercial vehicles in the company’s fleet. From now on, customer service staff will use them for assembly and service work.
The vehicles are the L version of the vehicles with a length of 5.30 meters. According to the company, they have a payload of just under 930 kilograms and can load work material up to 2.75 meters long. Around half of the 30 Vivaro-e Cargo vehicles will also be fitted with Sortimo workshop equipment specific to the application.
A 75 kWh battery is installed in the underbody, providing energy for a range of up to 329 kilometres (according to WLTP). The electric motor offers 100 kW of power. Torque is specified at 260 Newton meters. Accordingly, the Vivaro-e is charged via a CCS port above the front wheel on the driver’s side. The battery can be charged up to 80 per cent in 45 minutes at a 100 kW fast-charging station. Opel announced more details on the all-electric version of its Vivaro van in April 2020.
For Vinci, these are not the first Opel models in its fleet, but they are both the first electric Opels and the first Opel commercial vehicles. So far, the service provider has the Astra, Insignia and the Grandland SUV in its fleet. The group is supported in this by Opel partner Dürkop GmbH in Magdeburg. The vehicle fleet of the group’s building services division is to become completely electric.
