Citroen’s Berlingo Electrique will take centre stage on their CV Show stand, with the electric van joined by a new crew van Dispatch model and stop/start versions of the Relay.

The Berlingo Electrique is powered by a 49kW electric motor fed by 22.5kWh lithium-ion batteries providing a claimed range of up to 106 miles. The new electric model will go on sale in the second half of 2013 with the only models available in the UK being the standard (L1) wheelbase van offering a 636kg payload. Citroen is currently looking at the possibility of providing a contract hire package for the batteries..

Best selling versions of Citroen’s Relay van will also be present at the show, with L1H1 and L3H2 vans receiving stop/start systems to help lower CO2 emissions. Relay Stop Start vans, will emit 5g/km less CO2 than regular models, and fuel efficiency will increase by up to 2.2%. Joining the Relay and Berlingo Electrique will be a new L1H1 Dispatch Crew Van.

Citroen’s head of commercial vehicles, Scott Michael, says: “When the Berlingo Electrique goes on UK sale, Citroen will be able to offer businesses a unique choice of no les than five LCV driveline and fuel choices, including petrol, dual fuel, diesel, micro-hybrid and electric.”

As part of their business centre programme, Citroen will also be offering on the spot contract hire quotes. Citroen says it saw its standing in the market increase by 7% last year thanks to its business centre programme and focus on SMEs.
