Vauxhall is back at the show for the first time since 2015 and pride of place on its stand will be taken by its new Vivaro (pictured).

With Vauxhall now owned by PSA, the medium van, which will be built in Luton, is based on the same platform as the Citroen Dispatch and Peugeot Expert. It will arrive in showrooms in July and Vauxhall will offer its bestseller in three trims: Edition, Sportive and Elite.
The brand has pledged to launch dan electric Vivaro in 2020.

There’ll be no heavily facelifted Movano large van at the NEC, though. Due on sale in September, it will still be based on Renault’s Master. Vauxhall is set to reveal first images in May.


Vehicle camera and video firm VisionTrack will showcase its latest advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) and an extended range of forward- and rear-facing cameras for LCVs at the NEC.

The connected ADAS combines a forward-facing camera with an in-vehicle fatigue and distraction monitor, driver feedback device, and HD mobile digital video recorder.

VisionTrack claims the technology enables operators to tackle traffic incidents before they arise by warning of risk to and from the driver.

The camera identifies lane departure, forward collisions, tailgating, and vulnerable cyclists and pedestrians.

The in-vehicle monitor can spot whether a driver is tired or distracted by activities such as using a mobile phone, smoking or eating, according to VisionTrack, which added visual or audible warnings would alert the driver to potential dangers.
