Vauxhall to cut Viva and Adam city cars in 2019

Instead, you'll get an all-new Corsa next year and loads more electrified cars

Published: 09 Oct 2018

Vauxhall has confirmed that its Adam and Viva city cars will not be replaced at the end of their 'life cycles', and instead will be cut from the range in 2019.

The news comes as Vauxhall further pushes its electric commitments, with order books for the upcoming Corsa and Grandland X PHEV hybrids opening in 2019. Dropping the two city cars will contribute to the Europe-wide CO2 compliance effective in 2020. By 2020, Vauxhall aims to have four electrified models in the range, with an electric version of all models available by 2024.

2019 will however, see the new generation of the Corsa, Vivaro and Combo van, while the next Mokka X will appear in 2020. By 2021, Vauxhall will have launched eight all-new or refreshed models in the high-volume sectors.
