Citroen makes its debut at SED, the national event for construction, (stand no. 514, Fen Farm, Milton Keynes, April 29 – May 1), with its newly expanded, five-strong, commercial vehicle range. On display will be C15 Champ, Xsara Enterprise, New Look Berlingo and Dispatch vans, together with the newly launched and very competitively priced New Look Relay Tipmaster tipper.
In the last few months Citroen has launched a completely revised New Look Berlingo range, introduced the innovative Xsara Enterprise and launched the competitively priced New Look Relay tipper. In addition all Citroen commercial vehicles now have a unique, flexible commercial vehicle warranty package, which combines two year unlimited mileage or three year, 100,000 mile warranty cover.
New Look Relay: Latest addition to this popular range of vans, minibuses, chassis cabs and chassis crew cabs, is the New Look Relay 1800 3.5 tonne gvw tipper. This vehicle, which has a recommended retail price of only £12,995 + VAT + delivery, combines exceptional value and quality. The alloy/steel tipper body is designed and built by Tipmaster – the UK’s leading specialist manufacturer of this type of light commercial vehicle bodywork. The tipper body has an all-steel underframe, floor and headboard and extruded alloy body dropsides and tailboard with recessed fasteners.
Tipmaster’s own-make electro-hydraulic power pack, with its chromed under-floor scissor action ram, tips the body. The well-proven power pack, of which thousands have been built, includes remote, wander-lead operation, a heavy duty oil reservoir with visible level check facility and full weather protection for the motor and other electrical components. The tipper body incorporates a heavy duty, cab-high ladder rack with galvanised mesh infill. Body dimensions are 3.2m long x 2.032m wide and the body sides are 400mm high.
The very well equipped 2.9 to 3.5 tonne gvw New Look Relay range is offered with a choice of three advanced, common rail HDi diesel engines and a 110hp petrol engine.
C15 Champ: The Citroen C15 Champ van remains the UK’s most competitively priced diesel high-cube van. Available in 600kg and 765kg versions the C15 Champ van has recommended list prices ranging from only £6,695 + VAT. The C15 Champ’s high value appeal is such that it currently outsells many more recently introduced vans.
Xsara Enterprise: New to the Citroen commercial vehicle range is the Xsara Enterprise – a new class of business transport. The Xsara Enterprise combines very high levels of standard equipment with three-way access load carrying accessibility and competitive pricing at £10,995 + VAT + delivery.
The stylish, five door, 511kg payload Xsara Enterprise is powered by a 90hp 2.0HDi diesel engine. This provides the performance and economy to match its car-like good looks. The Xsara Enterprise offers business users the benefits of unrivalled levels of driver comfort and safety equipment. It meets the needs of a wide range of business customers, from the self-employed through to major corporations, including current/previous users of estate cars involved in high-tech service functions.
New Look Berlingo: The recently launched New Look Berlingo retains the proven, bench-mark design elements of the original Berlingo and adds more style and even higher standards of safety, comfort and convenience.
Variable assistance power steering is standard across the entire New Look Berlingo range and all but the entry-level 600D X gain remote control central locking, electric windows and an electrically adjustable passenger mirror. In addition to vans there is also a New Look Berlingo chassis platform for specialist bodywork.
Dispatch: Citroen’s versatile Dispatch range continues to grow in popularity, with sales up by more than 30 per cent last year. Dispatch 900 models are now powered by a 2.0HDi 110hp engine. A 71hp, 1.9D powered 815kg Dispatch van is also available. All Dispatch vans, platform cabs and window vans have seating for the driver and two passengers and all, except the platform cab, have twin side load doors. A six-seater Dispatch Combi is also available.Published 26 April 2003
