Arsenal adds Citroen C-Zero to club vehicle fleet

The club delivered an electrifying performance mid-week when they beat Reading 7-5 away from home in the Capital One Cup.

Their two new signings will help Arsenal improve its overall efficiency and reduce its fleet bill, according to the club. The C-Zero is 100 per cent electric, enhancing the Citroen range already available at Arsenal.

Delivery of the electric city car was taken by manager Arsene Wenger and established first-team players Thomas Vermaelen, Kieran Gibbs and Olivier Giroud.

The Citroen C-Zero has a top speed of 80mph and can reach up to 93 miles per charge. It’s a nimble, practical car with four rear seats and a 166-litre boot. It also features a rapid charge capability, which is perfect for urban driving.

Vinai Venkatesham, Head of Global Partnerships at Arsenal Football Club comments: “With the introduction of electric power to our fleet of already-efficient Citroëns, journeys such as those between Emirates Stadium and our Training Ground can be fulfilled with minimal environmental impact whilst enabling tangible cost savings.”

Marc Raven, Communications Director at Citroën UK, said: “By introducing two models into its fleet, Arsenal is demonstrating that electric power can fulfil a progressive business’ objectives – increasing efficiency whilst reducing environmental impact.

“A win-win situation for one of the UK’s most progressive football organisations.”

A new Citroen C-Zero is currently available from £26,216.
