Citroen Nemo makes a big splash (05/10/2007)

CitroŽn has announces an important new addition to its light commercial vehicle range - the new CitroŽn Nemo.  Set to make its public debut at the Amsterdam Motor Show (25 October), CitroŽnís new, entry level compact van brings innovative solutions to a wide range of business transport applications, and will go on sale in the UK during the second quarter of 2008.

Robert Handyside, CitroŽnís commercial vehicles operations manager, comments, ďThe new CitroŽn Nemo is set to make a real splash in the ultra-competitive UK lcv sector.  It neatly complements our existing UK light commercial vehicle range, expanding it to a five model line-up: C2 Enterprise, Nemo, Berlingo, Dispatch and Relay.  As such the Nemo will enable the company to provide a seamless range of lcvs from 0.84cu.m through to a massive 17cu.m load carrying capacity.  No other manufacturer in the UK will be able to offer such a comprehensive choice.Ē

The CitroŽn Nemo has been introduced to fulfil a wide range of business transport needs.  It is primarily designed for use in urban environments where its compact size, ease of manoeuvrability and low emissions (119g/km CO2 for the 1.4HDi model) characteristics will be of major benefit.

To suit its urban role the new Nemo is just 3.86m long but has a large internal load volume of 2.5cu.m and a strong payload of 610kg.  The Nemo is launched with a choice of a 75hp 1.4i petrol engine or CitroŽnís ultra-economical 70hp 1.4HDi diesel engine (63mpg/4.5 l/100 km on the combined cycle).

A CitroŽn five-speed automated manual transmission will also be optionally available for Nemo vans powered by the 1.4HDi engine.  This option combines the benefits of automatic transmission with the fuel efficiency of a manual vehicle, making it ideal for around-town use.

The new CitroŽn Nemo will offer an impressive range of safety and security equipment, will have a very competitive sales price and will provide the cost-saving benefits of long service intervals, innovative design and robust construction.  Price and specification details of CitroŽn Nemo vans for the UK market will be announced in 2008.
