Citroen credits strong January fleet sales to DS line-up and LCV range
The brand’s LCV fleet sales were also up, with a 10.2% rise to 1,627 registrations, taking 9.89% of the LCV market during the month.
Martin Hamill, Citroen’s fleet director, commented: ‘This strong fleet sales performance going into 2013 is great news for Citroen and builds on the brand’s success in 2012, when it again outsold the fleet market in both cars and LCVs. C
‘Citroen’s fleet car success is the DS range, which is going from strength to strength. At the same time we are also seeing tremendous sales performance from Citroen’s award-winning LCV range, which continues to appeal to all classes of business user from the sole trader to the largest fleet.’
Scott Michael, Citroen’s head of commercial vehicles & business centre programme, added: ‘An important part of Citroen Fleet’s strong start to the year is the growing success of the Citroen Business Centre network. In January alone, the 77 strong Business Centre network managed to grow its business with SMEs by an incredible 12%.’
