Citroen launches "Go Green & Clean Allowance" for London-based LCV drivers
The van manufacturer is implementing a "Go Green & Clean Allowance" of up to £3,500 towards a new Citroen LCV to help operators affected by the 3 January 2012 changes to the LEZ scheme.
In April, the registered keepers of the vehicles potentially affected by the extension of the LEZ scheme will receive a letter from Transport for London (TfL). This will notify them of the changes, which will prevent them from using their vehicles in the LEZ, unless they pay a charge of £100 per day.
The Citroen "Go Green & Clean Allowance" is available to any operator who can produce the above letter from TfL, referring to a vehicle that was registered before 1 January 2002 and which has a current Vehicle Excise Duty licence and an MoT.
Effective from 1 May 2011 to 31 March 2012, the Citroen scheme will provide operators with:
• £1,750 towards a new Nemo LCV
• £2,500 towards a new Berlingo LCV
• £2,500 towards a new Dispatch Combi
• £3,500 towards a new Dispatch LCV
• £3,500 towards a new Relay LCV
Scott Michael, Citroen UK’s commercial vehicle operations manager, commented: 'The new Citroen "Go Green & Clean Allowance" is yet another practical demonstration of the brand’s affordable, environmental policy. It provides a subsidy of up to £3,500 towards a new, low-emission, fuel-efficient Citroen LCV and plays an important part in supporting TfL’s London air quality improvement programme, while customers benefit from greater operational, financial and efficiency gains.'
