Arsenal make two electric signings
On side to take delivery of the models from electric advocate and C-Zero driver Quentin Willson were Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger and first team players Thomas Vermaelen, Kieran Gibbs and Olivier Giroud.
With zero fuel consumption, zero CO2 emissions and zero engine noise, C-Zero is Citroën’s 100% electric solution to meet the demands of modern day urban driving. Compact dimensions, rapid charge capability and generous range for day-to-day car journeys, make C-Zero a perfect city companion.
Despite measuring just 3.48m (l), 1.48m (w) & 1.60m (h), C-Zero offers a spacious and comfortable cabin with four real seats and a 166-litre boot. On the road, the Citroën C-Zero has a top speed of 80mph, does 0-62mph in 15.9 seconds and has a range of up to 93 miles per charge. A tight 9m turning circle and nimble handling make it easy to navigate through urban traffic.
Vinai Venkatesham, head of Global Partnerships at Arsenal Football Club commented: ‘Arsenal is committed to being a more environmentally friendly organisation and working with our partners to improve our overall efficiency. With the introduction of electric power to our fleet of already-efficient Citroëns, journeys such as those between Emirates Stadium and our Training Ground can be fulfilled with minimal environmental impact whilst enabling tangible cost savings.’
Marc Raven, Communications director at Citroën UK, said: ‘Our C-Zero continues to prove that electric cars can deliver a practical and efficient response to daily driver requirements. By introducing two models into its fleet, Arsenal is demonstrating that electric power can fulfil a progressive business’ objectives – increasing efficiency whilst reducing environmental impact. A win-win situation for one of the UK’s most progressive football organisations.’
