81.93mpg CITROËN NEMO
For the third year in succession, the Citroën Nemo is the ‘UK’s Most Economical Van’ in the independent ALD Automotive/TOTAL ECO 10 MPG Marathon, organised by Fleet World magazine. This year a Citroën Nemo 1.4HDi van returned exceptional fuel economy of 81.93mpg and beat its official combined cycle fuel consumption figure of 64.2mpg by no less than 27.62%.
Driven by John Kendall, with co-driver Dr. Paul Nieuwenhuis, the Citroën Nemo beat all other LCVs that took part in the demanding 399.4 mile event. Thus, for the third year in succession, the Citroën Nemo takes the title of the ‘UK’s Most Economical Van’ in the arduous test posed by the ALD Automotive/TOTAL ECO 10 MPG Marathon.
According to John Kendall: “The Nemo returned 81.93mpg over a tough, Midlands-based route. We had to maintain a respectably high 30mph average speed to avoid penalties, as well as successfully ensuring that the Nemo delivered its optimum fuel economy. This year’s event certainly showed that the Citroën Nemo van is very fuel efficient on all types of roads and in all driving conditions.”
Robert Handyside, Citroën UK’s Commercial Vehicle Operations Manager, said; “For the third year in succession Citroën has shown that the company’s advanced technology delivers real-world operator benefits in terms of exceptional 81.93mpg fuel economy. The Nemo van’s outstanding fuel consumption figures are particularly relevant when fuel prices are at such high levels.”
The Nemo compact, high-cube van range starts from just £9,165 + VAT, and offers an unrivalled combination of low operating costs, high (610kg) payload, a practical and spacious 2.5cu.m load compartment – and as the ALD Automotive/TOTAL ECO 10 MPG Marathonproves, outstanding economy comes as standard.
