Opel Movano Update


Opel takes its commercial vehicles very seriously, which is why they spent a big deal of time to upgrade the Movano.

The Movano provides the widest range of body variants on the commercial vehicle market, offering a model for virtually every customer-specific utility profile. The range includes panel vans (available in four vehicle lengths and three roof heights), combis, crew vans, platform, chassis and crew cabs as well as a full range of factory built conversions, including tipper, dropside, box body, and bus versions, ensuring that there’s a Movano built to meet their individual needs.

The new model has the lowest fuel consumption ever, and also gets a new infotainment system.

Read complete details on the new model in the press release below:

A series of optimizations has been made to the 2.3 CDTI Movano engine with its 74 kW/100 hp and 92 kW/125 hp versions which both come as standard with a six-speed manual transmission. Modifications to the oil and steering pumps, the gearbox oil, and electrical control systems, together with low rolling resistance tyres contribute to a significant lowering of both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions across all engines, powertrain and body style combinations. For example, in the 100 hp or 125 hp FWD Movano with the panel van body style (5048 mm length, 2496 mm height) fuel consumption and CO2 have been cut by nine percent and now stands at only 7.8 l/100 kilometers and 205g/km. Similar improvements were also achieved with the Combi FWD nine-seater passenger variant (5048 mm length, 2307 mm height) which now boasts more than seven percent less fuel consumption and CO2  (190 g/km, 7.2 l/100 km) than its predecessor both in the 100 and 125 hp output levels.

n a big boost to comfort and safety on board, all the infotainment systems in the Movano now come with Bluetooth and USB connectivity. This means the Movano driver who wants to use his mobile phone on the road can now do so in a safe, hands-free manner, whereas users can also benefit by being able to listen to, and control, their MP3 players through the built-in USB socket. This function is now available in the basic radio tuner and two of the more advanced CD/radio units. Two of the tuners on offer now come with a user-friendly easy-to-read display which is located in the center of the CD/radio instrument panel lets the driver navigate through several infotainment menus using rotary knobs and buttons, whilst the CD15 BT USB and the top of the range unit (CD35 BT USB) also benefit from steering column mounted remote controls, enabling the driver to keep their hands on the wheel at all times. The top of the range tuner also  includes a safety and comfort-enhancing remote display so that the driver does not need to bend down to reach for the tuner, which is a significant improvement in terms of road safety, and a TomTom based SD-card Navigation System is also optionally available with this unit.
