New Euro 5 Citroen Nemo – cleaner, greener and carries more
At the heart of the new Nemo range is a more powerful, higher-torque, more fuel-efficient and lower-emission 1.3HDi diesel engine. All new Nemo diesel vans also benefit from Stop & Start technology, further improving fuel efficiency and cutting CO2 emissions in urban driving.
As a result, the Nemo's Combined cycle fuel consumption is up 4.4% to 65.7mpg while CO2 emissions are down from 119g/km to 113g/km.
The Euro 5 1.3HDi engine is also fitted with an efficient, self-regenerating Diesel Particulate Filter System (DPFS) to bring further environmental gains.
Compared to the Nemo's previous Euro 4 1.4HDi engine, the new Euro 5 1.3HDi unit boosts power from 70 to 75PS, with a major increase in peak torque to 190Nm at 1,500rpm (previously 160Nm at 1,750rpm).
All new Nemo Euro 5 vans have additional load volume, with the 1.3HDi powered models delivering a 50kg payload increase. To reflect their new 660kg payload rating, the diesel-powered vans in the Nemo range now carry the 660 designation. The 1.4i petrol engined Nemo retains the 610 designation, as its payload is unchanged.
The new Nemo's increased load volume has been achieved thanks to the Extenso folding passenger seat now being fitted as standard. This new standard feature increases the available load volume by 0.3cu.m to 2.8cu.m and lengthens the load deck length alongside the driver by 968mm to 2491mm. There is also a new folding bulkhead available from Citroen dealers as a £189 + VAT + fitting accessory.
Robert Handyside, Citroen's commercial vehicle operations manager, said: 'The new Euro 5 Nemo uses advanced technology very effectively to provide significant operational, financial, environmental and safety benefits. It now carries more, while using less fuel and also has significantly lower CO2 emissions. This is a van designed to suit today's tough economic climate.'
