Citroen offers 10 good reasons to go greener this summer

Starting this month, Citroen customers can drive away in one of 10 models that emit less than 100g/km CO2.  From the full-electric C-Zero city car to the spacious New C4 hatchback, drivers can take advantage of both the financial and environmental benefits of owning a stylish new, sub-100g Citroen.
Joining Citroen’s existing sub-100g/km line-up are three new C3 models with a clean, green e-HDi 90 micro-hybrid powertrain, including second-generation Stop & Start.  One of the new e-HDi models boasts CO2 emissions of as low as 93g/km, with two others at 98g/km.  Fuel economy is an impressive 78.5mpg and 76.3mpg respectively.
The C3 HDi 70 manual VT has been rehomologated and now offers more efficient fuel consumption and lower emissions.  CO2 output reduces from 112g/km to 99g/km with improved fuel economy of 74.3mpg over a combined cycle, up from 65.7mpg.
The family sized New C4 e-HDi 110 Airdream EGS6 VTR+ is also rehomologated, with sub-100g/km emissions thanks to a new Aerodynamic Pack and Michelin Energy™ Saver tyres with ultra-low rolling resistance.  These efficiency boosting measures reduce CO2 emissions from 109g/km to just 98g/km - one of the lowest for a vehicle in this class.
Not only do drivers of these low-CO2 models benefit from improved efficiency to combat rising fuel prices, but there is also free V.E.D and central London commuters could save up to £2,500 a year with congestion charge exemption.* Business users can also enjoy the lowest possible B.I.K tax rates - 0% for C-Zero and just 13% for the nine other diesel powered models.
Linda Jackson, Citroen UK’s Managing Director, commented; “Citroen is committed to improving the efficiency of all its vehicles, minimising running costs to benefit drivers and reducing emissions to help the environment.  With 10 Citroen models now emitting between zero and 100g/km of CO2, new car buyers have an even greater choice of environmentally-considerate models to suit a variety of driving preferences.”
