Citroen ready to showcase new models at CV Show24 February 2016

Citroën will unveil its 2016 Berlingo range at the Commercial Vehicle Show (NEC, Birmingham; 26-28 April), with an all-Euro 6 line-up, and will also showcase its upgraded Ready to Run, ready-bodied range of Relay vehicles.

The Berlingo (pictured) will be offered from May with a choice of Euro 6 engines, including a VTi 95 petrol engine, BlueHDi 75, BlueHDi 100 and BlueHDi 120 diesel engines.

Two new Euro 6 BlueHDi-powered Berlingo Enterprise vans will make their debut at the NEC. Based on the BlueHDi 75 manual L1 625 van and the BlueHDi 100 S&S manual L1 850 van, they feature additional kit such as air conditioning, touchscreen audio pack, rear parking sensors and anti-theft alarm.

The van manufacturer has also announced it will introduce an expanded Relay Ready to Run range at the CV Show, including a new Euro 6 line-up.

Joining the range of ready-bodied tippers, dropsides and Luton vans will be a new ‘Plant & Go’ small plant transporter, a car transporter and two new crew vans.

Citroen says the 3.5-tonne gvw Plant & Go model, in particular, is an key addition. Negating the need for a trailer, it can transport one large or two small items of plant. It can also be used as a traditional dropside to transport items such as jet washers, gas cylinders or scaffolding. The load area is easily accessible, due to a floor height of just 530mm from the ground.

Removable light alloy loading ramps double as the load bay’s sideboards, so there is no need for a ramp or tail-lift, and the result is a kerb weight of 1,860kg.

The Relay-based 3.5 tonne gvw car transporter, meanwhile, has a drop frame chassis design and a 1,760kg kerb weight, thanks to the use of lightweight materials.

The Enterprise crew vans, says Citroen, are available in L1H1 and L3H2 configurations, offering a large load space and room for a driver and five passengers.

“The expanded Relay Ready to Run range now caters for an even wider range of specialist applications,” says Jeremy Smith, Citroën’s head of commercial vehicles. “We back these high quality, competitively priced conversions with a full factory warranty and offer them with the option of Citroën contract motoring finance lease and contract hire agreements.”
