Citroen LCVs have just scored a hat trick at the UK Business Van of the Year Awards 2015, presented by Business Vans, in association with Low Cost Vans. Announced at a ceremony in London earlier this week, Citroën LCVs were honoured with: Van of the Year – Berlingo HDi 75, Best Heavy Van – New Relay 35 L3H2 HDi 130 6-speed and Best Small Trades Van – Berlingo HDi 75.
Ralph Morton, Business Vans’ Editorial Director, remarked; “Citroën is to be congratulated for its major success in the Business Van of the Year Awards 2015, presented by Business Vans. Winning three of these prestigious awards reflects the exceptional range of benefits that the Berlingo and New Relay offer van operators. The Business Van Awards are recognised industry-wide, thanks to the strict operational and financial criteria laid down by the judging panel, which this year included directors and senior managers from three major leasing companies; the FTA; Glass’s BCA and our sponsors Low Cost Vans.”
The judges commented that the Berlingo HDi 75 won the “Best Small Trades Van’ Award, as it suits all trades wanting a compact van and has excellent built-for-business specification. This Berlingo model offers operators low contract hire costs, excellent fuel economy, in-service reliability and low emissions. It also has strong driver appeal with high levels of standard equipment”.
