Vauxhall Corsavan EcoFlex 0
It contains a 16v 1.3 CDTi which is able to produce 95 BHP.
The economy and efficiency values offered by the vehicles are second to none. It is able to achieve 78.3 MPG and emits just 95 g /km C02. Urban driving is said to achieve around 65.5 MPG.
The start/stop technology included on the van helps the environmental credentials. When it comes to a halt, in a traffic jam for instance, the engine switches off in order to save fuel efficiency and C02 emissions. The driver has to simply release the clutch whilst the van is in neutral in order to activate the start/stop feature. When the van needs to be driven off again, the engine starts up immediately. Whilst the engine is off, the van’s power steering, ventilation and braking system performance still up and running, ensuring the safety aspect is still present.
Aerodynamic wheel covers, a variable geometry turbocharger, a lowered chassis and a shift up indicator adds to the efficiency technology within the car. These special pieces of technology also allow the van to be Euro 5 compliant.

The addition of the Corsavan meant that the Vauxhall are the first car brand to convert all of their commercial vehicles into an eco version.
At present, the Vauxhall Combo, the Vauxhall Movano, the Vauxhall Vivaro and the Vauxhall Astravan (which is British made) all come under the ecoFLEX umbrella. The company are clearly attempting to keep a strong foothold of the fact that they are the nation’s number one provider when it comes to producing commercial vans.
Vauxhall’s Luton, Bedfordshire and Ellesmere Port plants managed to produce 77,000 plus Vauxhall commercial vans were produced last year.
We believe that the Corsavan ecoFLEX is available from showrooms, it will take the country by storm. Fleet companies will be especially attracted to the eco credentials.
