CITROEN 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 CitroÃ«n, 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 October 22, where CitroÃ«n was also shortlisted in the Best Light Commercial Vehicle 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 CitroÃ«n UK’s director — fleet and used vehicles.
With a broad product range, Citroen 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 CitroÃ«n’s ultra-low emissions vehicles is the C1, which offers a choice of VTi 68 and the PureTech 82 three-cylinder petrol engine in three-door and five-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 per cent/14 per cent BIK (Benefit In Kind) rates.
