The winners of the 2021 What Van? Awards have been revealed.

The prizes were handed out during an interactive, virtual event, held instead of the usual physical awards ceremony due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The top award was split three ways, as the Van of the Year prize went to PSA Group’s electric vans: the Citroen e-Dispatch, the Peugeot e-Expert, and the Vauxhall Vivaro-e.

The LEVC VN5 picked up the Editor’s Choice award, while the late Neil McIntee – former editor of What Van? – became the latest inductee to the Hall of Fame.
