Another year of achievement for Citroen commercial vehicles
2010 has been another year of achievement for the advanced, ‘green’ and efficient Citroen LCV range. During 2010, Citroen has added range-topping Nemo, Berlingo, Dispatch and Relay Enterprise models with new and relevant comprehensive specifications, including air conditioning, rear parking sensors and Bluetooth, to retain its competitive advantage in an increasingly demanding market.
Citroen has also continued to develop advanced telematics, to move even further ahead of the competition. To deliver major cost, productivity, safety and emission benefits, 2010 saw the standardisation of the unique Trafficmaster Smartnav satellite navigation and Trackstar stolen vehicle tracking package on all Berlingo, Dispatch and Relay panel vans. In addition, all Nemo and Berlingo First vans, Berlingo and Dispatch platform cabs, and Relay chassis cabs/chassis crew cabs can be optionally specified with this unique telematics package at a heavily subsidised price of just £399 + VAT, including three years’ subscription.
This advanced telematics package offers the productivity and safety boosting benefits of: a nationwide safety camera alert system, traffic congestion avoidance, congestion charge zone warnings, as well as the most up-to-date satellite navigation systems available. The Trafficmaster telematics platform enables any Citroen LCV, so equipped, to be optionally specified with Fleet Director real-time fleet management for just £19.99 + VAT per month.
Citroen’s LCV range continued its award-winning progress in 2010 with the following major independent accolades:
