Alongside the 900 was a variety of new specially-built off-the-shelf vehicles, including a new high-spec minibus from Advanced, a number of new refrigerated van conversions from Somers and a new compact tail-lift Relay.
The M1 minibus has been upgraded at no extra cost to Enterprise spcecification. This adds a radio/CD player, ABS brakes and a driver’s airbag as standard. The minibuses can be ordered with nine, 10, 11 or 15 seats and prices range from £12,995 to £17,745 ex-VAT.
On the temperature-controlled front, Citroen has doubled the number of Somers conversions on offer to 31. This is the result of adding Enterprise versions to Berlingo, Dispatch and Relay – which means standard remote central locking, ABS brakes, radio/CD palyer and driver’s airbag as standard.
Meanwhile the new tail-lift Relay model will be of interest to fleets wishing to comply with increasingly stringent health and safety rules at work, as the addition of a tail-lift eliminates the need for lifting and carrying.
The tail-lift is supplied by Tipmaster and will carry a total of 33kg. When not in use, it swivels and folds away, thus not taking up valuable cargo space. The platform is 1,346mm long and 775mm wide.
The tail-lift conversion is £1,900 ex-VAT.
