Along with the turkey, the tinsel and the mulled wine there’s another staple of Christmas – the carols.

But with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many of us won’t be able to get to the usual festive concerts, but fear not as Vauxhall has helped to host the first ‘drive-by’ Christmas carol concert.

The manufacturer teamed up with social media star SUAT (real name Zach Sabri), who helped to keep the nation dancing throughout 2020. They performed a drive-by routine in London’s West End, ahead of Tier 3 restrictions being imposed on Wednesday (16th).

Sabri said: “With London heading into tier three it’s been fantastic to hit the streets with Vauxhall to play my special Christmas remixes to those who are going to miss out on their usual Christmas celebrations.

“The reaction has been brilliant! It was great to see so many smiling faces and some people even said it was the first ‘live’ music they’d heard all year. Things are going to be a bit different this Christmas, but it’s great to do something socially distanced and Covid secure that can still give people a dose of Christmas fun”.

SUAT drove around London in Vauxhall’s new Vivaro-e – the brand’s first electric van that joins an expanding range of battery-powered models from the firm. It offers a 143-mile electric range, with prices starting from £37,645.
