PRICE cuts of £1,000 are being made by Citroen across its range of Dispatch and e-Dispatch vans as the French company updates its LCV line up.

Dispatch pricing now starts from £22,995 for the entry-level X Pro Panel Van model, while the e-Dispatch Electric starts from £26,450 after the Government low emission grant.

The Dispatch and e-Dispatch Electric are both available in three lengths: XS, M and XL.

XS variants measure 4.6 metres long, while M models increase the vehicle length to 4.9m and XL extends to 5.3m long.

Load capacity for XS variants is 4.6 cubic metres, while M models can carry up to 5.3 cubic metres, and XL variants 6.1 cubic metresin Panel Van configuration.

Load volumes are identical for Dispatch and e-Dispatch Electric models, while maximum payloads are up to 1,446kg for Dispatch, and up to 1,004kg for the e-Dispatch Electric.

Both can be specified in either Panel Van or Crew Van configuration, with Crew Van models featuring a second row of seats, bringing the maximum occupancy to six.

A major change for the Dispatch is the introduction of new Euro 6.3-compliant diesel engines which sees the range updated with a new BlueHDi 100 S&S 6-speed manual powertrain that enjoys improved efficiency versus the outgoing unit, with CO2emissions reduced by up to three g/km.

Elsewhere in the range, the previous 2.0-litre BlueHDi 120 Diesel is replaced with a BlueHDi 145 engine, which is available with a six-speed manual gearbox or an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Driver Pro variants also receive a new 1.5-litre BlueHDi 120 S&S 6-speed manual powertrain, with the previous BlueHDi 120 now deleted.

This new engine brings with it a 15g/km reduction in CO2when compared with the outgoing unit. As part of the changes the BlueHDi 150 has also been removed from the range.

The e-Dispatch is powered either by a 50kWh or a 75kWh battery pack, combined with a 136hp electric motor. Fully charged, e-Dispatch Electric models with 50kWh batteries can cover up to 143 miles with 75kWh models increasing the vehicle range up to 205 under WLTP testing.
