Vauxhall has delivered the first of its second generation Vivaro vans to roll off the production line at its Luton plant to Homeserve, to mark a major new fleet supply deal with the national home maintenance company.

Alongside 65 medium-sized Vivaro vans, the manufacturer has also agreed to supply Homeserve with 140 of its revised Movano large vans.

The vehicles will be used by Homeserve for emergency repairs and maintenance covering plumbing, drainage, electrics and heating through its own network of directly employed and sub-contracted specialist engineers.

The Vivaro short-wheelbase, low roof (L1H1) panel vans are powered by the 1.6-litre CDTi 90hp engine. The Movanos get the 2.3-litre CDTi Bi-turbo drivetrain with output of 136hp.

Both models are specified in red paint and with air-conditioning and parking sensors.

Jadon Silva, Homeserve’s director of UK Procurement, said the firm had chosen the Vauxhall vans due to their “outstanding features and excellent running costs”.
