I think it was a bit later than that but I would welcome to know your source. As far as I know the Opel/Vauxhall Movano is only produced at Gliwice, Poland. Production of customers vehicles was meant to start in May 2021 but only for Citroën and Peugeot with the Movano coming a bit later.Apparently it all happened in January 1st to 16 th 2021 after being knocked back in late 2019 by French gov who are/ were part owners of Renault. I have not got to the bottom of who owns what but all to do with fiat/Chrysler and PSA group
By the end of this year the Vito will be the only van in that “1 tonne” sector that won’t have a re-badged twin. Even the VW Transporter and Ford Transit Custom will be the same van by year end.Google Stellantis it’s a group from Fiat/Chrysler Peugeot and Citroen (PSA) to become Stellantis who have now bought Renault ?
Last time I looked I thought Mercedes bought Chrysler. In or around 2015 the Vito looked as if it became a rebadged Fiat Scudo /Pug Expert ? I’m a bit lost since I stopped buying car/van magazines hence my asking when the Movaneo moved to Fiat style van after I saw a 22plate van for sale. I thought it was a mistake but did a quick look around and sure enough it was kosher.

Despite the Ducato, Boxer and Jumper being made in the same Sevel factory on the same line for the past ~15 years.I think you may need to Google it yourself, Terry - Stellantis haven't bought Renault.
Renault are now in alliance with Nissan and Mitsubishi.
FCA merged with PSA under the Stellantis banner but each group retains its corporate identity.
The PSA Group and not Stellantis acquired Opel/Vauxhall.
Hence why the Movano is a clone of the Peugeot Boxer and Citroen Relay and uses the same PSA 2.2L engine and has only a manual gearbox.
The Ducato remains different to the PSA variants as only it uses FCA's Jeep-derived 2.2L and the 9s auto gearbox.
I'd be surprised if the differences hadn't reduced with the latest generation.
