Citroen introduces Dispatch Crew Van

Citroen has expanded its light commercial vehicle range with the launch of a new Dispatch Crew Van. Part of the Business Class programme, the Crew Van is powered by the HDi 125PS engine with a six-speed manual gearbox. It emits 179g/km of CO2 with claimed economy of 41.5mpg.

The L2H1 1200 Crew Van is a six-seat model with a payload of 1067kg and a large load compartment. As it has a payload of more than 1000kg it is possible for VAT-registered business customers to reclaim the VAT paid on the vehicle.

It's priced at £21,120 and comes with a two year unlimited mileage or three year 100,000 mile warranty. It comes with Trafficmaster Smartnav sat nav, Trackstar stolen vehicle tracking, electric front windows, remote central locking, a trip computer plus an RDS radio and CD player as standard.

To provide seating for a crew of up to six, the Dispatch Crew Van has a driver’s seat and a dual front passenger seat with a second row of seats, which incorporates an integral bulkhead - tested to ISO 27956 for load shifting protection. The rear passenger bench seat also includes adjustable headrests and three-point inertia reel seat belts.

Fixed side windows, or optional sliding windows, are provided in the twin sliding side loading doors. The integrated moulded bulkhead has a central viewing window behind the second row bench, allowing full visibility if glazed rear doors be specified. The model features an ABS plastic and fabric headlining - including a ceiling-mounted light - and full ABS plastic trims on the sliding doors and side walls. The rear crew compartment also includes a removable carpet on top of the rubber anti-slip floor trim for ease of cleaning.

The design and positioning of the rear seat and bulkhead means that both passenger legroom and load area are maximized. Thanks to a clever use of space, a 310mm deep x 1100mm wide aperture allows access to the space under the rear bench seat, giving a maximum floor length of 2,110mm in the rear load compartment. The load deck length in the main part of the load area, behind the rear bulkhead, is 1700mm.
