Citroën has scooped the title of ‘City Car Manufacturer of the Year’ at the GreenFleet Awards 2015.
Having won the same award in 2014, it marks back-to-back triumphs in the category for Citroën, and highlights the continuous efforts made by the French manufacturer to design and engineer cleaner small cars with ultra-low emissions. The awards were announced at a gala dinner at Edgbaston Cricket Ground on 22nd October, where Citroën was also shortlisted in the Best LCV Manufacturer and Best Fleet Manufacturer categories.
“We are delighted to once again be voted City Car Manufacturer of the Year at the GreenFleet Awards. It is recognition of the work that goes on from our talented team of designers and engineers to produce the most environmentally conscious cars we can for our customers,” commented Martin Gurney, PSA Peugeot Citroën UK’s Director – Fleet & Used Vehicles.
With a broad product range, Citroën now boasts more ultra-low emissions city cars than ever before. This includes the continually expanding range of highly efficient three-cylinder petrol engines, with the award-winning PureTech engine now available in power ratings of up to 130bhp.
One of Citroën’s ultra-low emissions vehicles is the C1, which offers a choice of VTi 68 and the PureTech 82 three-cylinder petrol engine in 3-door and 5-door versions. C1 CO2 emissions start as low as 88g/km, with a Combined Cycle economy of up to 74.3mpg, low insurance groupings from just 6E and 13%/14% BIK.
