It's a Combo Jim, but not as we know it. The Vauxhall Combo name now applies to a fifth generation of vehicle, identified by parent Opel as the Combo E. This was introduced in 2018 following the sale the year before of Opel/Vauxhall by General Motors to the French PSA group (formed mainly of Peugeot and Citroen). While the Combo B and C had seen extensive use as service vehicles (notably by LUL and Arriva), the Combo D has only appeared on LTSV a few times (with Arriva and Go-Ahead). The first Combo E to be reported as a service vehicle was DN69AOA, an unmarked white Combo Life model used by Arriva London from its Dartford garage. It was photographed near the garage on 22nd October 2020. Apart from the obvious changes of design, the type is now also available as an MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle), also referred to rather unfortunately as a LAV (Leisure Activity Vehicle), with windows all around the body. Elements of the design, in particular the shape of the side windows, can also be seen in the Peugeot Partner and Citroen Berlingo models.
