Vauxhall Movano-e Electric Dropside Review

January 5th, 2023

The Vauxhall Movano-e Dropside at a glance

The all-new Movano-e is now available as a dropside body variant so you can benefit from low running costs, zero emissions in-use running and a quieter ride all in a dropside variant, thanks to the fully electric engine.

Designed to comfortably meet the wide-ranging demands of business and fleet users, the versatile All-New third-generation Movano-e is available as a panel van, crew cab and chassis cab so you are sure to find a vehicle that suits your requirements.

Vauxhall is now one of very few brands offering an electric variant across its entire LCV range, giving buyers the choice to go fully electric to suit the needs of their business and benefit from the environmental, ownership cost and user experience benefits they offer.

As a brand, Vauxhall is committed to offering an “electrified variant across its entire car and van range by 2024.”

If you are looking for a dropside with environmental considerations and a wide range of safety features, then the Vauxhall Movano-e Dropside could be the vehicle for you.

Keep on reading to discover our thoughts on the engines and specs and interiors of this brand-new dropside vehicle.

Engines and Spec

The Movano e-Dropside boasts a 90kW motor (reaching speeds of up to 75mph with 122hp and 260Nm of instant torque) powered by a choice of either a 37kWh or 75kWh battery.

With ranges of 72 and 139 miles, this vehicle is ideal for urban environments, such as loading and unloading, last-mile deliveries, and the open road.

One of the biggest benefits of the Movano-e Dropside is that it can go from 0-80% in as little as an hour using a 50kWh public fast charger, while the standard 7kWh wall box you’ll likely have installed at home will charge your vehicle in six to twelve hours.

The All-New Movano also benefits from one of the widest ranges of Gross Vehicle Weights in the large LCV class (2,800kg to 4,000kg) and a maximum payload of 2,100kg.

All-New Movano is also available with a powerful, durable and efficient diesel engine option. The state-of-the-art 2.2-litre unit meets strict Euro 6d emissions regulations and is available with a range of power outputs, from 120PS to 165PS and with torque figures of between 300Nm and 370Nm.


The interior of the Vauxhall Maovano-e Dropside delivers class-leading space without sacrificing comfort.

The gear selector is not in stick form, but rather a button which you need to press to choose a driving mode (Drive, Neutral or Reverse).

The Movano-e Dropside has a 5” touchscreen infotainment display with a built-in navigation system including real-time traffic information for the driver’s convenience.

The all-new Movano-e is also available with a range of key safety features designed to protect both occupants and other road users.

Depending on trim level the systems available include forward collision alert, blind spot warning, lane departure warning and Hill Descent Control, which takes into account the extra length of a trailer when warning drivers about objects in their blind spot.

As with other Vauxhall LCV models, the All-New Movano and Movano-e benefit from both VauxhallConnect and the MyVauxhall app.

On the Movano-e, the MyVauxhall app allows access to useful information such as nearby charging stations, while VauxhallConnect gives drivers access to features such as current charge status. On all versions of All-New Movano, LIVE Navigation provides online traffic information in real-time

Pros & Cons

  • Quiet and comfortable to drive
  • Class-leading levels of safety technology and driver aids


  • Expensive to buy outright, though more cost-effective on finance
