Citroën has unveiled new trim levels for its entire van range, which include the Berlingo, Dispatch and Relay, as well as their electric counterparts. 

The "Enterprise Edition" replaces the previous "Enterprise Pro" trim, and is said to be more suited to meet the needs of fleets and SME business users. 

As a result, vans purchased in the 'Enterprise Edition' spec come as standard with air conditioning and cruise control with a variable speed limiter.

The cabin features an eight-inch touchscreen supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port. 

Meanwhile, the "Driver Edition", which succeeds the “Driver Pro” trim, features additional driving aids and styling cues. 

These include rear parking sensors and a reversing camera, an automatic handbrake, and voice recognition. 

Externally, ‘Driver Edition’ vans also gain the ‘Look Pack’ featuring body-coloured front and rear bumpers, side rubbing strips and exterior door handles, as well as 17-inch wheels. 

Inside, ‘Driver Edition’ variants gain a six-way adjustable driver’s seat, lumbar support and under-seat storage, while a modular folding passenger bench can be used for taking lunch and writing on. 

In addition to the new trim levels, Citroën UK has also introduced a new online platform to allow customers to reserve its Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs), beginning with the Berlingo Van. 

It comes ahead of a full rollout for the firm’s LCV range in 2023. 

The platform is part of Citroën's ‘omnichannel’ approach, which aims to make the purchasing process as simple as possible for customers. 

Customers who reserve a vehicle online with a fully refundable £199 deposit, and will be contacted within one hour to confirm all the details. They will then have the opportunity to choose their preferred Citroën Business Centre to supply the vehicle, and will be assigned a local Business Manager to oversee  the process. 

Eurig Druce, Managing Director of Citroën UK, said: “We know that ease and efficiency are key to the success of any business and this new platform allows customers the opportunity to reserve their new vehicle in a manner and at a time that is most convenient to them.

“Berlingo Van was the UK’s best-selling compact van in 2021 with continued success in 2022, and I am delighted that this platform will make it even easier for more businesses to expand their fleets with Citroën.”

Electric versions of the Berlingo and Dispatch LCVs are powered by a 134bhp electric motor and a 50kW battery, though the Dispatch can come equipped with a larger 75Kw battery for greater range. 

The e-Relay also comes with a 75kWh battery, but with a slightly less powerful 121bhp electric motor. 

All models support rapid charging, with a charging rate ranging from 50 to 100kW depending on the model.
