New Euro 5 Citroen Relay delivers high performance with low emissions
The new 3.0HDi Euro 5 180 replaces the previous Euro 4 Relay 35 HDi 160 6-speed manual models and provides a 12.5% power increase, with peak torque of 400Nm delivered at 1,400rpm, 300rpm lower than the superseded HDi 160 engine.
Fuel efficiency has also been improved. On the combined cycle, the Euro 5 Relay 35 L3H2 HDi 180 6-speed manual panel van returns 33.2mpg – a 9.2% improvement over the Euro 4 Relay HDi 160 powered panel van’s 30.4mpg. Additionally, the Euro 5 Relay 35 L3H2 HDi 180 6-speed manual panel van’s CO2 emissions are 224g/km, down 9% from the previous Euro 4 engine’s 246g/km.
Scott Michael, Citroen’s commercial vehicles operations manager, commented: 'The new low-emission and fuel-efficient Euro 5 HDi 180 powered Relay models will be welcomed by operators needing the benefits of both high payload and load hauling performance, mated with optimum levels of fuel efficiency. We are confident that when the complete Euro 5 Relay range is available later this year it will offer very high standards of fuel efficiency and low emissions, which will make it amongst the cleanest and greenest in its class.'
