Van registrations in 2014 increased by 18.7% compared to the previous year, according to the Society of Motor Manufactures and Traders.
The only sector to fall compared to 2013 was that of vans weighing less than 2.0-tonnes, which dipped by 5.3%. However, the small van market is likely to receive a boost in 2015 due to new model vans such as the Ford Transit Courier becoming established.
“A continued demand for vans has seen the commercial vehicle market in 2014 return to pre-recession levels, reflecting the growing confidence of many businesses in the UK.”
The new Vauxhall Vivaro has arrived and you could certainly argue that it’s about time. The previous generation Vivaro went on sale way back in 2001 and it’s taken Vauxhall 13 years to bring a replacement to market.
The Vivaro sits above the Combo compact van and below the Movano large panel van in the Vauxhall light commercial vehicle range. It offers a choice of body styles including the basic panel van, Combi minibus and the halfway house double cab with a second row of seats behind the driver and front passenger
As with the original Vivaro, Sportive versions will be offered that upgrade the looks of the van. Additions on the Sportive models include body-coloured bumpers, side mouldings and mirrors plus chrome accents on the grille.
