The Dispatch has entered the biggest-selling sector of the UK light commercial market and one that is extremely competitive with high-quality models such as the Ford Transit Custom, Renault Trafic, Vauxhall Vivaro, Volkswagen Transporter and Mercedes Vito all vying for attention.
PSA Peugeot-Citroen builds the new Dispatch,at its Sevelnord plant near Lille in northern France and the vans represent a significant step up in terms of quality, practicality and economy compared with their predecessors.
Martin Gurney, Citroens fleet and used vehicles director, is confident the new medium vans will deliver dramatic volume growth. He says Citroen hold a combined UK market share of about 17% (Peugeot 9%, Citroen 8%) but that the previous Expert and Dispatch models were only managing 8.5% between them.
“By the end of 2019 we want the [medium van] share to be in line with the 17% average,” he says, and predicts this will equate to at least 10,000 more sales a year.
The all new Citroen Dispatch, now carriers more for less! with a larger payload and two load lengths available, (2.25m or 2.58m) and two wheelbases (3m and 3.12m) with two heights (1.94m and 2.28m) your spoilt for choice with the new model Dispatch van.
