Citroën Relay Electric launched at CV Show
As part of Groupe PSA's commitment to have electrified variants of each model available by 2025, Citroën has launched the Relay Electric at the CV Show 2019, which is the largest vehicle in the range.
New Citroën Relay Electric models will be produced at the Sevel factory in Val di Sangro, Italy and converted by partner BD Auto.
The New Berlingo Van also makes its CV Show debut, which is available in four trim levels, X, Worker, Enterprise and Driver. As a continuation of the Citroën electrification strategy, an electrified version of New Berlingo Van will be available by 2021.
A New Berlingo Van M BlueHDi 100 Worker is physically on display on the Citroën stand. The Worker trim offers a host of standard equipment, including an automatic electronic parking brake, Grip Control®, underbody protection, tyre pressure monitoring, EXTENSO® modular folding passenger bench seat with pivoting writing table, a load-through bulkhead, front fog lights with cornering function, a 220v power socket, 30mm increased ground clearance, and Mud and Snow tyres.
Citroën Dispatch is also be present on the stand. Standard Enterprise specification includes air conditioning, rear parking sensors, electrically adjustable heated door mirrors, the Moduwork® configurable passenger bench seat with through-loading bulkhead, an alarm, automatic lights and windscreen wipers, Citroën Connect Radio with seven-inch touchscreen, DAB radio, Bluetooth® connectivity, USB, MirrorLink and coffee break alert. The Dispatch model on display at the NEC is also fitted with the Worksite Pack, which is part of the new Dispatch Worker trim that becomes available with the Euro 6.2 Dispatch range launching in May 2019.
Citroën Dispatch will form part of the electrified range from 2020.
The Citroën Relay Ready to Run conversions range is represented on the Citroën stand by a Relay Low-Floor Luton L3 model powered by the BlueHDi 160 engine. The low floor design eases loading and also helps to extend the load volume to 20m3. The floor is 4,100mm long and there is additional storage space above the cab in the aerodynamic Luton pod. Lightweight 14mm thick composite body panels contribute to the 1,300kg gross payload. External marker lights are fitted to the bodywork. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, a dual passenger seat and a heavy-duty battery.
