Citroën slashes Dispatch and ë-Dispatch Electric LCV prices by £1,000
Citroën has cut prices for its Dispatch and ë-Dispatch Electric LCVs by £1,000 across the line-up under a series of changes for 2022.
As part of its ‘Fair Pricing’ pledge announced a year ago, Dispatch pricing now starts from £22,995 for the entry-level X Pro Panel Van model, while ë-Dispatch Electric starts from £26,450 (incl. Plug-in Van Grant) in Enterprise Pro Panel Van trim. As before, both models are available in three lengths – XS, M and XL – and either panel van or crew van configurations.
The updates also bring a number of changes to the Dispatch engine line-up, including a new Euro 6.3 diesel engine. The BlueHDi 100 S&S six-speed manual powertrain replaces the previous version and brings improved efficiency, with CO2 emissions reduced by up to 3g/km.
The former 2.0-litre BlueHDi 120 diesel has also been replaced with a BlueHDi 145 engine, which is available with a six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The line-up also brings a new 1.5-litre BlueHDi 120 S&S 6-speed manual powertrain that replaces the previous BlueHDi 120 and delivers a 15g/km reduction in CO2. As part of the changes the BlueHDi 150 has also been removed from the range.
The powertrain for the Citroën ë-Dispatch Electric models remains the same and comprises either a 50kWh or a 75kWh battery pack, combined with a 136hp electric motor, giving WLTP-rated ranges of 143 and 205 miles respectively.
