Citroen showcases Motability vehicles

Citroen will showcase a total of 14 vehicles at the Mobility Roadshow 2010 at the England Showground near Peterborough from 1 to 3 July.

The stars of the show will be a DS3 DSport and a demonstration model of the new Citroen C3 1.6HDi Exclusive which will demonstrate the versatility of Citroen cars for the Motability scheme.

The Citroen display will also feature the five-seat Citroen C4 Picasso and its larger, seven-seat sibling, the Grand C4 Picasso.

Larger vehicles such as the Nemo Multispace, Berlingo Multispace and C5 will be show in a series of displays and demonstrations.

Citroen will showcase steering balls, scooter hoist technology and a left foot flip accelerator at the show in a number of demonstration vehicles.

The French marque offers a wide range of Motability vehicles, including the C1 city car, C3 Picasso and roomy six or nine-seat Dispatch Combi.

The Motability scheme, partnered by Perrys Motors, was started in 1978 to give disabled people access to cars. The scheme allows cars to be fitted out with a raft of innovative technology to make driving safer and easier.

Through the scheme, customers can buy specially designed versions of best-selling models such as the Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Astra.

The scheme is available for people receiving higher rates of the Disability Living Allowance or War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement, but blue badge holders can often be offered a discount for the scheme.
