Vauxhall variety appeals to Johnson
Wednesday, September 17, 2008
The contract calls for different sizes of vehicle to meet different operating needs and Johnson wanted to give its engineers input into the specifications of the vans that each of them would drive.
It was the model and specification choice offered by Vauxhall that helped persuade Johnson Controls Global WorkPlace Solutions to order 60 light commercials from the manufacturer. A mixture of Vivaros and Movanos, they're being used by engineers who maintain equipment and buildings under contract at over 600 service stations across the UK.
With Movano they could select either short- or long-wheelbase or standard or high roof variants, not to mention a crew cab van, plus any of the engines and a Tecshift semi-automatic gearbox if required.
So far as Vivaro was concerned Johnson specified the Sportive model — it features air-conditioning plus electric windows and mirrors — which comes with 39 options and 34 panel van variants. An optional satellite navigation system was fitted to all of the vehicles.
