LUTON, UNITED KINGDOM – June 10, 2013: In the first five months of 2013, Vauxhall has seen sales of its award-winning Corsavan increase by nearly a quarter compared to the same period in 2012.

Corsavan sales to small businesses have seen a particularly big increase, with sales up by more than 70 per cent year-on-year, cementing the popularity of this surprisingly roomy, well-equipped, economical van.

Few vans on the market can match Corsavan's low running costs and its capability to both nip around town and make light work of motorway miles. Despite its compact dimensions and sleek styling, the Corsavan boasts a class-leading payload of 550kg.

One of the reasons for the impressive increase in sales of Corsavan is its impressive fuel economy of up to 83.1mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions as low as 89g/km - lower than many of the cleanest cars on the market. Another way van operators are saving money is on insurance, with all Corsavan models falling into Group 1E.

Richard Collier, National Commercial Vehicle Sales Manager, Vauxhall said: “We're delighted with the significant sales growth that Corsavan has experienced so far in 2013. Of course, with a best-in-class payload and outstanding fuel economy at a time of rising fuel costs, we're not surprised that the award-winning Corsavan is proving so popular."

All Corsavan models benefit from safe and predictable handling, a spacious cabin and high levels of safety and security. The 1.3-litre CDTi ecoFLEX model with Start/Stop delivers lively performance along with exceptional fuel economy and low emissions.

The Corsavan cabin is built for long-term driver comfort, with its new-look interior detailing, supportive seats and plenty of useful in-cab storage.
