Vauxhall and Voyager MPV will keep on keeping on. The British manufacturer will continue to supply Vivaro Combi MPVs to Voyager MPV, which will in turn convert the vehicles into handicap-accessible units. Ultimately, the vehicles will serve as a new wave of British-built taxis.
In total, the initial order will be for 50 new Vivaro Combis, which feature seating for up to nine occupants. Vauxhall has also built these specific Vivaro Combis to custom-fit what Voyager MPV wants to accomplish, making it easier for handicapped riders to climb aboard.
“Our dedicated team at Voyager MPV are looking forward to working in partnership with Vauxhall,” said Vin O’Leary from Voyager. “We have built an all new 9-seat wheelchair accessible taxi, approved to EC whole vehicle type approval, with innovative technology and design, ensuring the Vauxhall Vivaro VX8 Taxi will remain at the forefront of the taxi market for years to come. Building on the Luton-built combi, ensures that we can offer a product into the taxi/private hire trade that is truly Built in Britain.”
“We have been working with the team at Voyager for a while now and they certainly appreciate the value and versatility of the Vivaro Combi,” said Richard Collier, Vauxhall’s National Commercial Vehicle and B2B Sales Manager. “It’s always interesting to see what our customers do with our product and it looks like Voyager have done a great job with these Luton-built combis.”
