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.'For more of the latest industry news, click here.
