- Stars of the Citroen stand at the UK's biggest van show
- Exhibits include Berlingo, Dispatch and Relay
- New Ready to Run Relay Tipper the main highlight
As usual, the Citroen show stand is closely integrated with that of Peugeot, as both fall under the same PSA Peugeot-Citroen company control, and can be found located in Hall 5 (stand 5D40).
There are no groundbreaking exhibits from Citroen this year, but you will be able to get up close and personal with one of the newest additions to Citroen’s selection of Ready to Run conversions – a Crew Cab Tipper based on the Relay.
Citroen Ready to Run Relay Tipper conversion at the CV Show 2018
The Ready to Run Tipper conversion on display at the CV Show is based on a crew cab version of the L3-length Relay.
Built from steel and aluminium, it can carry payloads of up to 1,033kg and has a load area 2,670mm long and 2,026mm wide, while the sideboards are 400mm tall and smooth-finished to make it easy to apply company liveries.
Chapter 8 visibility markings are included as standard at the rear.
Citroen Relay, Dispatch and Berlingo at the CV Show 2018
As for regular Relay panel vans, CV Show-goers will have to be content with a single L3H2 specification example, shown in the generously equipped Enterprise specification.
Alongside this you’ll also find a pair of Dispatch medium vans: a medium-length M model in Enterprise spec (a bestselling combination), and an extra-long XL variant fitted with the Grip Control system for low-traction surfaces.
As for the Berlingo, this appears in Electric L2 spec – but is this really worth a look if this van is due for replacement very soon?
