Citroen number 1 in LCV scrappage scheme performance

10th December 2009 Print

Citroen’s winning performance in the LCV Scrappage Scheme during November makes it three months in a row at the top of the LCV Scrappage chart for the Company.  In November alone, Citroen sold 152 LCVs under the Scrappage programme - 26% of the month’s total LCV Scrappage registrations. 

During September, October and November Citroen sold a total of 548 LCVs via Scrappage, taking 25.7% of total LCV Scrappage sales during the period.  This strong performance has seen Citroen further distance itself from most of its competitors, as well as consolidating its second place position overall within the LCV Scrappage programme.  Since the Scrappage Scheme was first announced earlier this year, Citroen has consistently been one of the top LCV performers, securing a total of 825 registrations year-to-date - 21.3% of overall sales under the scheme.

Robert Handyside, commercial vehicle operations manager, comments, “Many UK businesses, with older vehicles, have been only too willing to upgrade to a modern, fuel efficient Citroen LCV and the Scrappage Scheme has proved to be the ideal incentive for these customers.  We end 2009 with a range of highly competitive scrappage offers that will encourage yet more operators to replace ageing vans with new Citroen LCVs - as well as beating the VAT increase on 1st January.”
