Citroen Nemo makes big splash in city van market

The much loved Citroen Nemo has made a big splash at the inaugural Trade Van Driver magazine awards, picking up first prize in the ‘best city van’ category.

The judges were quick to praise the compact and versatile Citroen, which has become such a fixture in the cities around the UK. The Nemo measures four metres in length and can carry a payload of up to 660kg, and combined with its flexible load compartment, this capacity puts many larger and less manoeuvrable vans to shame.

The independent judges, all respected figures within the industry, said: “The cheeky Nemo is ideal for city-based operations. It has a small footprint to winkle into those tight corners, but is capable of carrying up to 2.8m3 of cargo and returns amazing fuel economy figures. Add to this the expert back-up from Citroen’s ever-increasing number of business centres and you have a worthy winner.”

Scott Michael, Citroen’s commercial vehicle operations manager, commented: “The Nemo’s suitability for urban operation has been recognised with its success in winning the ‘best city van’ accolade in the Trade Van Driver awards. The Nemo is perfect for a wide variety of business applications and is sufficiently versatile to provide fuel-efficient, low-cost business transport for all types of operations, both in and out of town.”

If you are in the market for a compact but capable commercial vehicle, then the Citroen Nemo could well be the van for you. It is currently available with a choice of three trim levels and either a petrol or diesel engine, capable of a fuel economy of 68.9mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km.

There are also a wide range of other options available, including engine Stop and Start as well as an automated manual gearbox, which gives the benefits of two-pedal driving for only a small added cost. The versatility of the Nemo is unrivalled and the option exists for a unique full-height, full-width mesh bulkhead.
