Citroën Relay van updated with more efficient engines and extra kit
Citroën has updated its Relay large van for the 2022 model year, adding in new engines and enhanced standard specification.
Effective from October 2021 production, the line-up gets a pair of Euro 6.3-compliant 2.2-litre, four-cylinder turbo diesel engines, replacing the previous Euro 6.2 units and bringing CO2 emission reductions of up to 9g/km.
The BlueHDi 120 produces 120hp and 311Nm of torque. The more powerful BlueHDi 140 puts out 140hp and 340Nm of torque. And both feature Stop & Start (S&S) technology.
Standard equipment has also been updated for the Relay, which is available as a panel van, crew van or a window van and available in X, Enterprise and Driver trims, depending on model. For X panel van versions, cruise control with programmable speed limiter is now standard while a 12V socket is now fitted to the load area across all panel van models. Further enhancements to the interior include a new USB charging socket on the dashboard of Enterprise and Driver versions, both of which also gain a dashboard tablet computer holder for working on the go.
Other additions include an alarm and deadlocks on entry-level X versions in line with the rest of the Relay range, as well as a lower central glovebox and electrical connections interface box on all window van versions.
The line-up also includes the ë-Relay Electric, launched in May 2021 and positioned above the smaller ë-Dispatch medium van and the forthcoming ë-Berlingo Van in the brand’s e-LCV line-up. It’s available with two battery packs – a 37kWh version with a WLTP range of 73 miles, or a larger 70kWh unit with up to 139 miles of range. Both are capable of a 0-80% charge in one hour from a 50kW rapid charger.
The 2022 Citroën Relay LCV range is available to order now. Prices start from £26,655 (basic MRRP excl. VAT) while the ë-Relay Electric is priced at £59,750 (basic MRRP incl. PiVG excl. VAT.)
