Voyager Multi-Purpose Vehicles (MPV), a leading UK-based specialist vehicle converter, has ordered 50 Vauxhall Vivaro Combi models to be converted for use as taxis.
The firm has regularly converted Vauxhalls in the past and the latest order means that the company’s conversions are predominantly Vauxhall models.

Building on the Luton-built combi, ensures that we can offer a product into the taxi/private hire trade that is truly Built in Britain.”

It’s always interesting to see what our customers do with our product and it looks like Voyager have done a great job with these Luton-built combis.”
