Vauxhall Combo extends upwards


Vauxhall has added a new high-sided version to its Combo panel van range.

The L2H2 panel van, debuted at the CV Show in Birmingham this week, offers a maximum load height of more than five feet.

Stretching the H1 specification’s height by an extra 245mm, the L2H2 is available with 1.6-litre diesel engines of with 89 or 104bhp. or 105PS, with Start/Stop technology fitted as standard on both.

The extra length and height gives the Combo a five cubic metre cargo capacity, combining an overall height of 2125mm and an overall length of 4740mm and with the same one tonne payload as its shorter H1 siblings. The width of 1230mm between each wheel arch will accommodate a Europallet.

According to Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles Brand Manager Steve Bryant, the inclusion of a high-roof long-wheelbase version to the Combo range is in response to customer demand.

“Today’s market means that customers are increasingly demanding a wide variety of commercial vehicles to choose from and we are confident there is now a Combo for every application,” Bryant says.
