Citroen offering 10 models that emit less than 100g/km CO2

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 7, 2011

Beginning this month, car buyers will now be able to choose from among the 10 Citroën vehicle models that emit less than 100g/km CO2, as the company’s existing lineup of sub-100g/km are joined with three new C3 models with a green and clean e-HDi 90 micro-hybrid powertrain, including second-generation Stop & Start.

With these additional models, drivers can enjoy the environmental and financial benefits of having a new stylish sub-100g Citroën. One of these new e-HDi models boasts of as low as 93g/km CO2 emissions and a fuel economy of 78.5mpg.

On the other hand, the two other new models boast of CO2 emissions of as low as 98g/km and a fuel economy of 76.3mpg. The C3 HDi 70 manual VT has been rehomologated. It now has more efficient fuel consumption and lower emissions.

The CO2 output is reduced to 99g/km from 112g/km with improved fuel economy of 74.3mpg over a combined cycle, up from 65.7mpg. The family sized New C4 e-HDi 110 Airdream EGS6 VTR+ has also been rehomologated with sub-100g/km emissions, as it has a new Aerodynamic Pack and Michelin Energy Saver tires with ultra-low rolling resistance.

These efficiency-enhancing features reduce CO2 emissions from 109g/km to 98g/km, which is one of the lowest for a car model in this class. Drivers benefit from having improved fuel efficiency, especially while fuel prices are increasing, but there is free V.E.D.

Also, central London commuters could save around £2,500 annually with a congestion charge exemption. Moreover, businesses can enjoy the lowest possible B.I.K tax rates. It’s 0% for C-Zero and 13% for the nine other diesel models.

CITROËN OFFERS 10 GOOD REASONS TO GO GREENER THIS SUMMER

Starting this month, Citroën customers can drive away in one of 10 models that emit less than 100g/km CO2. From the full-electric C-Zero city car to the spacious New C4 hatchback, drivers can take advantage of both the financial and environmental benefits of owning a stylish new, sub-100g Citroën.

Joining Citroën’s existing sub-100g/km line-up are three new C3 models with a clean, green e-HDi 90 micro-hybrid powertrain, including second-generation Stop & Start. One of the new e-HDi models boasts CO2 emissions of as low as 93g/km, with two others at 98g/km. Fuel economy is an impressive 78.5mpg and 76.3mpg respectively.

The C3 HDi 70 manual VT has been rehomologated and now offers more efficient fuel consumption and lower emissions. CO2 output reduces from 112g/km to 99g/km with improved fuel economy of 74.3mpg over a combined cycle, up from 65.7mpg.

The family sized New C4 e-HDi 110 Airdream EGS6 VTR+ is also rehomologated, with sub-100g/km emissions thanks to a new Aerodynamic Pack and Michelin Energy™ Saver tyres with ultra-low rolling resistance. These efficiency boosting measures reduce CO2 emissions from 109g/km to just 98g/km - one of the lowest for a vehicle in this class.

Not only do drivers of these low-CO2 models benefit from improved efficiency to combat rising fuel prices, but there is also free V.E.D and central London commuters could save up to £2,500 a year with congestion charge exemption.* Business users can also enjoy the lowest possible B.I.K tax rates - 0% for C-Zero and just 13% for the nine other diesel powered models.

With 10 Citroën models now emitting between zero and 100g/km of CO2, new car buyers have an even greater choice of environmentally-considerate models to suit a variety of driving preferences.”
