Opel launches new Movano large van based on Stellantis platform

Opel/Vauxhall is launching the new-generation Movano large van, which has moved to a Stellantis platform from one developed by Renault.

The Movano is similar to three other Stellantis large vans, the Citroen Jumper, Peugeot Boxer and Fiat Ducato, which are built at the Sevel Sud factory in southern Italy. The Movano is built at Stellantis’ factory in Gliwice, Poland.

Previous Movanos were built at Renault’s factory in Batilly, France, alongside the Renault Master and Nissan NV400.

Opel’s van lineup – small, medium and large – is now on Stellantis platforms. The medium Vivaro was also on a Renault platform until 2019, and the small Combo was on a Fiat platform until 2017. Since its purchase by PSA Group, now part of Stellantis, in 2017, Opel has emphasized growing commercial van sales.

Like the other Stellantis large vans, the Movano is available in a full-electric version. The Movano-e has a 90 kilowatt electric motor, and either a 37 or 70 kilowatt-hour battery. Range is 116 km (72 miles) with the smaller battery and 247 km (153 miles) with the larger one. Top speed is 110 kph.

The main powerplant is expected to be a 2.2-liter diesel, with output ranging from 121 hp to 165 hp, Opel said.

The base price of the Movano in Germany is 32,580 euros ($37,600) for diesel versions and 57,990 euros for the Movano-e. Orders are now open in Germany, Opel said Tuesday.
