Vauxhall Vans Increase Market Share with UK-Built Vans

Vauxhall Vivaro, Renault Trafic or Nissan Primastar white panel vanWhile Vauxhall and parent company GM have always had a strong presence in the fleet market – their retail success has been slightly less consistent, at least in the van market.

It seems that the market-leading Vauxhall Vivaro (also Renault Trafic and Nissan Primastar) have put paid to that weakness, however. 2007 saw Vauxhall sell more than 30,000 UK-built vans to British buyers – of which more than 18,000 were Luton-made Vivaros.

Vauxhall’s overall share of the van market was up 1.1% to 15.7%, with its share of the retail market reached 12.2% – translating to an impressive 13,323 vans sold to non-fleet buyers – typically small businesses and tradesmen.

2007 saw Vauxhall’s 500,000th Vivaro roll off their Luton production line and the company remains the UK’s largest producer of commercial vehicles, producing more than 100,000 light commerical vehicles in the UK every year.
