Citroën Acclaimed at the 2014 GreenFleet Awards
Citroën were named City Car Manufacturer of the Year and LCV Manufacturer of the Year at the awards in Warwickshire.
With the UK potentially receiving fines for failing to reach air pollution targets, the need to curb vehicle emissions is becoming ever more pressing. And year-on-year, organisations who operate fleets, as well as the motoring industry and fleet suppliers, are putting great effort into reducing the impact of their transport operations and vehicle production. The GreenFleet Awards continues to recognise such dedication and are the industry’s most coveted awards for environmental fleet management and green motoring.
This year the green-minded fleet community gathered at the Heritage Motor Centre Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire on Thursday 30thOctober. The event was hosted by Quentin Willson, a renowned motoring journalist and longstanding spokesperson for drivers’ rights and a champion of greener fuels.
Citroën celebrated double success this year, taking home City Car Manufacturer of the Year, sponsored by Green Motion, and LCV Manufacturer of the Year, sponsored by Kumho Tyres. Citroën has a range of 51 cars that are sub-100g/km, and with the launch of its new city car, the C1, the marque has no less than 19 model variants in that bracket, with diesel engines emitting as little as 84g of CO2 per kilometre.
For its commercial vehicles, this year Citroën released its new Relay panel van with fuel economy improvements of up to 15 per cent while CO2 emissions have also been reduced thanks to efficient HDi and e-HDi 130 diesel engines, Stop & Start, energy recapture and intelligent alternator management. What’s more, it has class-leading payloads and load space practicality. Citroën’s LCV range also includes the Nemo, Dispatch and Berlingo – which also has a pure electric version
