Just like the standard Vivaro, the electric version will also be available in the three exterior lengths of 4.60 meters, 4.95 meters and 5.30 meters.
By 2021, the range of light commercial vehicles of the German car manufacturer will be expanded with the arrival of the Opel Combo Life, the Opel Combo Cargo, and the Opel Zafira Life, all of them with their respective electrified versions.
