Citroën SME car and LCV sales success

Citroën's Business Centre network has reported its car and LCV sales to small and medium size companies (SMEs) have risen significantly over the past year.

Last year, record numbers of SMEs turned to Citroën for their vehicle needs through its nationwide business centre network, seeing a 40% increase in B2B sales during 2011.

In the past 12 months, Citroën Business Centres have increased their car sales to the SME sector by an impressive 71.4%.

The Citroën Business Centres network also increased its light commercial vehicle (LCV) sales to the SME sector by an impressive 23.3%, significantly out-performing the total LCV market trend.

Martin Hamill, Citroën's head of commercial vehicles and business sector, said: "Owners of smaller businesses already have enough concerns without having to spend vast amounts of time focusing on and deciphering their business transport requirements.

“Yet the vehicles they operate often play a crucial part in their commercial success and require careful selection.

"The specially trained staff in Citroën's Business Centres understand the demanding nature of SME's transport requirements.

“They can advise SMEs on the most suitable vehicles and specifications for their businesses. They know about any relevant local or national regulations and restrictions, and give insights to the accounting benefits of the various funding and maintenance packages available."
