Citroen is also offering a monthly rental reduction to just £249 per month over three years and has increased the number of ‘EV specialist’ dealers handling the EV from 11 to 21 dealers, all in UK cities not covered by the original network.
The aftersales EV network will be extended from the 11 initial dealers to a network of around 100 locations in coming months.
Citroen’s EV range will grow at the beginning of 2013 with the introduction of a new electric Berlingo van, which will qualify for the recently announced extension to the Government’s EV grant, with a maximum of £8,000 support towards the purchase price of electric commercial vehicles.
Linda Jackson, Citroen UK’s Managing Director, commented; “2011 marked the introduction of EV’s in the UK. 2012 will see the market continue to grow as the technology becomes more accepted by consumers, more manufacturers enter the market and the charging infrastructure continues to develop. Citroen has been at the forefront with C-Zero and this latest announcement confirms the next stage in our development plans.”
