Vauxhall commercial vehicles is enjoying a bumper year with fleet sales up by 52% and retail sales up 20%. The increased volumes can largely be attributed to significant gains made by both the Movano and new Vivaro models. While sales of Corsavan is up 13% and Combo numbers have increased by 7%, it is Movano (+44%) and Vivaro (+51%) that are leading the way.
Volkswagen has again declined to address the issue of potential compensation relating to the recent emissions scandal, insisting that it is “too early” to discuss the matter, despite a number of legal firms starting to call on VW owners to register an interest in making a claim.
The latest versions of Volkswagen's Caddy and Transporter models made their UK debut when they were launched at van centres across the UK on 7 September, exhibiting design and technology enhancements including upgraded engines, further improved safety features and increased levels of comfort.
