- Vauxhall Movano wins ‘Best Large Van’ and is crowned the the overall ‘Van of the Year 2020’ in Trade Van Driver’s annual awards
- Vauxhall also awarded ‘Best Conversion Range’
Luton – The Vauxhall Movano has been awarded ‘Best Large Van’ and the overall ‘Van of the Year 2020’ by Trade Van Driver. Vauxhall also wins the ‘best Conversion range’ accolade.
Trade Van Driver, the UK’s top van magazine for small business users, has announced the winners of the 2020 Trade Van Driver Awards. Trade Van Driver is the only magazine which caters for the owner-driver and small fleet operator and as such its awards are different from others as they are judged not only by the expert panel of journalists at the magazine but also by a panel of readers who use light commercial vehicles as part of their businesses.
Trade Van Driver Magazine Editor Matthew Eisenegger commented on the van accolade: “The Vauxhall Movano has been the unsung hero of the heavy van market for years now, plugging away faithfully on Britain’s motorways but rarely winning the major awards it deserves. Now with a brand new model on offer featuring a host of improvements, it’s time for this van to emerge from the shadows and take not one award but two trophies, including the top award of all.”
On the conversion award, Matthew Eisenegger said: “The needs and wants of Britain’s traders are many and varied – and so are their requirements for vehicles. None have the time to buy vans and then get them converted for their special purposes, so conversions are hugely important to them. Vauxhall’s range of off-the-shelf conversions fit the bill admirably in the eyes of the judges and therefore takes the prize this year.”
Stephen Norman, managing director of Vauxhall Motors, said: “We are immensely proud to receive these awards for our Vauxhall Movano van and our conversion range. Our LCVs are crucial to carrying British business and we are delighted to have been recognised today. Our van market share continues to grow year-on-year increasing from 8.1% to 9.8%”
