The latest version of the Official Government “New car fuel consumption and emission figures” booklet clearly proves Citroen’s unbeatable fuel economy credentials, with the Company posting three of the top four positions in the chart of Britain’s lowest CO 2 and most frugal diesel models.
In confirming its credentials as a producer of low cost, environmentally friendly small cars, the Citroen C1, C2 and C3 all achieved over 65 mpg in the official combined consumption cycle tests.
The new Government booklet, compiled by the Vehicle Certification Authority, also illustrates the cost of fuel required to cover 12,000 miles (the assumed annual mileage). Here, no car beats the Citroen C1, with a running figure of £744, followed closely by the C2 and C3 at just £781.
The ultra-economical city and supermini models are complemented in the Citroen range by a number of other “green” vehicle technologies, including the Company’s unique Stop & Start system, now available on both C2 and C3, its frugal Common Rail HDi engines and the Diesel Particulate Filter System, which reduces particulate emissions to so low a level as to be virtually unmeasurable.
The latest Government results further underline Citroen’s fundamental commitment to developing economical, efficient and environmentally sound vehicles for the motorist.Published 12 May 2006
