Citroën Commercial Vehicles
If you are looking for a commercial van to fulfil your business needs then a van from the varied Citroen range could be just what you are looking for. Their extensive choice of vans and variations in models means that they have something to offer everyone, from the small business owner with just one vehicle to larger companies that need to manage and operate a fleet of vehicles.
For the driver that spends a large amount of the day travelling from one delivery destination to the next, or the tradesman that has few tools to transport, there is the compact yet spacious Citroen Nemo. If it is something more heavyweight you are after then the Citroen Relay Chassis comes with many conversion options. The Citroen Relay comes with the option to choose either light use or heavy duty loading again giving the driver the choice that is consistent throughout the Citroen van range.
The range is available in a choice of wheelbase, length, height and power. Power begins with the 75hp of the Nemo increasing to 150hp with the larger models. So you really will have no trouble choosing the van to suit you. The only issue you will have is which option to choose. The Citroen range includes the Nemo, Berlingo, Dispatch, Relay and the variations on the Relay Chassis Cab
If it's an urban delivery vehicle or a small payload capacity that you after then the Citroen Nemo is a good choice. It is the ideal vehicle for use around towns and cities as it is not only very fuel efficient but it also drives more like a car than a van. The manoeuvrability of this van makes it great for parking in small spaces making light work when you are making multiple stops during the day. With a folding passenger seat The Nemo is more spacious than it looks inside.
The next model up in the Citroen range is the versatile Berlingo. Ideal for both business and pleasure with a choice of two models, the Berlingo maximises on both payload length and capacity. The Citroen van range really does stick to the ethos of "Créative Technologie".
Catering for the needs of busy drivers that are on the go every model comes with Bluetooth, USB and DAB radio, all of which are accessible through steering mounted controls. Extra communication add-ons are available for the driver that needs extra connectivity, these vans really do keep the driver in control. As standard comes ABS, Central locking, Air conditioning, electric windows and mirrors. Other features include cruise control and grip control.
If it's something more substantial that you are looking for but not quite a heavy duty vehicle then you need the Citroen Dispatch. This vehicle is a great contender with a low load height making it the best in its class for this category. The load height can further be lowered and loading/unloading made even easier with pneumatic suspension.
Fuel efficiency of the Citroen van range is important and the smaller vans in the range can achieve consumption of up to 60mpg although with urban driving expectations are more realistically set at the low to mid 50's. The larger heavy duty commercial models - the Relay Chassis Luton, Tipper and Dropside - will deliver nearer to 30mpg as you would expect with a heavy pay load. The Citroen heavy duty adaptations come with their own range of features which include a Tipper warning buzzer and heavy duty ladder racks or Dropside removable sides and corner posts.
Comfort has clearly been thought of with the Citroen Van range and all passenger seats are ergonimically designed for the driver who spends a large amount of their day at the wheel. The ergonomically designed seats are fully adjustable in both height and distance from the wheel. The spacious and modern cabins have lots of storage with all models equipped with either 1 or 2 lockable, spacious compartments which are large enough to store a laptop securely.
All Citroen vans excluding the Nemo come with 3 front seats with the option to fold/retract the middle seat. The folding action of the Citroen range allows the middle seat to be converted into a working space which is ideal for documents/paperwork or even a cup of coffee and a sandwich! As well as the ability to fold the middle seat, the outside passenger seat can also be folded to increase the payload capacity and length of the vehicle.
You only have to look at the variety and choice in the Citroen van range and it is clear to see why Citroen is such a popular choice. The attention to detail and consideration for the user has been clearly have thought through giving them a practical and efficient van range.
