As the latest move in its 'Business Class' programme, Citroen has expanded the newly launched Euro 5 Citroen Nemo range. Available now, the Citroen Nemo HDi 75 EGS Stop & Start 660 LX is an even more economical and lower emissions model.
In addition, the standard specification of the range-topping Nemo HDi 75 manual Stop & Start 660 Enterprise has been enhanced with a new dual-function Connecting Box, which includes Bluetooth and a USB socket. This new equipment replaces the previous solus Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity feature on this model. The Connecting Box is also available as an option on all Nemo LX vans.
The Citroen Nemo HDi 75 EGS Stop & Start 660 LX features Citroen's innovative Electronic Gearbox System - an advanced automated manual gearbox. This combines the fuel efficiency of a manual 'box with the driver benefit of a two pedal automatic. The EGS gearbox enables the driver to select automatic mode, or manual mode using the sequential shift facility of the central gear selector.
The Citroen Nemo HDi 75 EGS Stop & Start 660 LX provides even better fuel economy and lower emission figures than those achieved by the Euro 5 Nemo HDi vans with five-speed manual transmission. CO2emissions for the EGS model are reduced by 3.54% to just 109g/km from the manual transmission Euro 5 model?s 113g/km. Its exceptional fuel economy figures are also even better than those of the manual transmission van with 60.1mpg Urban (+7.82%), 74.3mpg Extra Urban (unchanged) and 68.9mpg Combined (+4.64%).
Scott Michael, Citroen's Commercial Vehicle Operations Manager, commented: 'At the launch of the Citroen Vans - Business Classe programme, Citroen stated that one of its key elements was the development of environmentally respectful, fuel efficient vehicles. The Citroen Nemo HDi 75 EGS Stop & Start 660 LX exemplifies this strategy. It enables hard pressed businesses to provide their drivers with the comfort and convenience of two pedal driving, while gaining from additional fuel efficiency and emissions benefits. And, amazingly, the Citroen Nemo HDi 75 EGS Stop & Start 660 LX is only ?400 more expensive than the equivalent manual transmission model.Euro 5 Nemo - designed to benefit businesses
All vans in the Euro 5 Nemo range provide operators with major financial, environmental and productivity benefits. As Citroen's smallest van, the Nemo is designed to appeal to urban businesses. Reinforcing its urban credentials, the Nemo is just 3.86m long and has a turning-circle of just 9.95m. Yet, the Citroen Nemo has a large internal load volume of 2.8m and payloads of up to 660kg - matching the load carrying and load volume capacity of some of its larger high-cube competitors.
