Citroen announces upgrades to standard spec on LCV ranges30 July 2014

Citroën has announced that all Nemo, Berlingo and Dispatch vans will now incorporate electronic stability control (ESC) as standard.

The announcement and the recent launch of the New Relay means that ESC is now standard on all Citroën light commercial vehicles.

ESC uses steering angle data and other information from the vehicle to detect if the vehicle is about to travel in a different direction to that indicated by the steering wheel position. ESC then automatically reduces engine power and applies the brake to the appropriate wheel to help the driver maintain control.

The manufacturer has also announced other specification improvements to its range of LCVs.

The Nemo HDi 75 Stop & Start EGS 660 LX van has been renamed Nemo HDi 75 Stop & Start ETG 660 LX and gains a Gear Efficiency Indicator – already standard on versions with manual gearboxes.

The ETG gearbox has optimised pedal mapping to adjust power for smoother start-ups and acceleration.

All Berlingo vans, crew vans and platform cabs are now fitted with Hill Start Assist from this month.

The Dispatch HDi 90 manual L1H1 1000 vans, in standard and Enterprise form, move from 15-inch wheels and rear drum brakes, to 16-inch wheels and rear disc brakes. Cruise control, with programmable speed limiter, is also now standard on all Dispatch panel vans, crew vans and platform cabs.
