Forestry Commission takes first enhanced Berlingos

THE UK Forestry Commission is getting its first 35 Citroën’s 35 Berlingo 2.0HDi 600 XTR+ enhanced traction vans.

The Berlingo 2.0HDi 600 XTR+ has been developed for operators that need vans with off-road capability.

It has higher ground clearance and a sophisticated limited-slip differential.

Citroën says the vehicle gives better off-road capability without the higher capital and running costs associated with four wheel drive vehicles.

Some will replace Forestry Commission 4x4 vehicles.

Berlingo and Dispatch vans make up the bulk of the Forestry Commission’s 650-strong light van fleet.

Its latest Berlingos are being supplied by Citroën Glasgow, are part of a deal for 100 vans and will be run on five year, non-maintenance Lex Vehicle Leasing contract hire agreements.
