Opel Vivaro-e Versatile Flatbed Truck
- Emissions-free Opel LCV features high quality platform with folding walls and tailgate
- Anti-slip platform surface for secure transportation; spacious toolbox fitted underneath
- Low 86-cm load height and completely flat floor for optimum usability of cargo space
The wide range of body variants for the bestselling Opel Vivaro-e battery- electric light commercial vehicle (LCV) continues to grow with a new offer joining the line- up. In addition to the Cargo panel van, Combi people carrier, crew cab and floor cab, the emissions-free Vivaro-e with 50-kWh or 75-kWh lithium-ion battery is now available as a flatbed truck from the German conversion specialists Schoon Fahrzeug Systeme und Metalltechnik GmbH.
Based on the Opel Vivaro-e floor cab with a single row of seats and a wheelbase of 3.27 metres, the versatile flatbed truck offers a versatile platform measuring 2.44 x 1.83 x 0.40 m (L x W x H) manufactured in high quality. The 40-cm-high aluminium tailgate and sidewalls fold down for easy use; the robust steel frame with high torsional rigidity is protected by a 10-year anti-perforation warranty, thanks to hot-dip galvanisation.
Loading/unloading is comfortable, thanks to the low load-height of only 860 mm. The floor of the platform is completely flat, without encroaching wheel-arches. Access is further enhanced by the integrated step on the inside of the tailgate. Rocker panels below the platform complete the high-end appearance.
It is important that cargo, goods and tools are stowed safely. The floor of the Opel Vivaro-e flatbed truck’s platform (produced in one-piece without butt welds) therefore features an anti-slip surface. Eyes recessed into the exterior frame (three per side) enable secure fastening of the cargo. Equipment can be stowed in the spacious, approx. 2.4-m-deep box located under the platform at the rear of the vehicle. The 1.13-m-wide lid with lockable latch and two hinges opens downwards for optimum usability. If customers require storage especially for tools, they can order a spacious toolbox from Schoon accessories (1.80 x 0.63 x 0.53 m), which attaches to the load surface directly behind the cabin. With the 50- kWh battery, the Vivaro-e flatbed truck offers a payload of up to 960 kilogrammes.
The lithium-ion battery is packaged under the cargo space in such a way that the Vivaro-e requires no trade-offs in cargo capacity. A sophisticated regenerative braking system, which recovers the energy produced under braking or deceleration, further increases efficiency.
Ready for anything: Electrification without trade-offs
With 100kW (136hp) and 260 Nm of torque from the propulsion system, the Vivaro-e model line-up offers electrified transportation while requiring no concessions on usability. The electronically controlled maximum speed of 130 km/h enables Autobahn speeds while also preserving the electric driving range. Depending on the model variant, the Vivaro-e can cover up to 328 kilometres on a single charge of the 75-kWh battery (WLTP1).
The Vivaro-e is as easy to charge as it is to use. Via wall box, fast charging or even a cable for charging from a domestic plug socket if necessary. Using a 100 kW DC public charging station, charging of the 75-kWh battery to 80 per cent state-of-charge takes around only 45 minutes. Opel offers on-board chargers that ensure that charging times are as fast as possible and that the battery (covered by an eight-year/160,000km guarantee) has a long life.
In addition to the midsize Opel Vivaro-e and the Combo-e compact van, the German brand also offers the Movano large van as the battery-electric Movano-e. The entire Opel LCV portfolio is therefore all-electric, emissions-free and immediately orderable, while the Vivaro-e HYDROGEN fuel cell vehicle continues the brand’s electrification strategy.
1Range determined according to WLTP test procedure methodology (R (EC) No. 715/2007, R (EU) No. 2017/1151). The actual range can vary under everyday conditions and depends on various factors, in particular on personal driving style, route characteristics, outside temperature, use of heating and air conditioning and thermal preconditioning.
