Vauxhall is a car manufacturer. The company was founded in London in 1903 and was named after the area of the city where it was created. The company is based in Luton, Bedfordshire. They have 2 factories, 1 in Luton for the production of the Vivaro van and 1 in Ellesmere Port for the production of the Astra family car. In March 2017, Vauxhall and parent brand Opel were brought by PSA, the company that owns Peugeot and Citroen. The brand would become a part of Stellantis after a merger between PSA and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in January 2021.
