Citroën vans join National Grid maintenance fleet

National Grid has taken delivery of 20 Citroën Berlingo vans for its UK maintenance fleet as part of a long-standing partnership between the two.

The fleet of Berlingo vans will be used to maintain the country’s power network

The 20 Citroën Berlingo BlueHDi 75 M Enterprise vans were chosen by National Grid for their combination of load space, equipment levels and low running costs. The vehicles come with a payload of up to 1,000kg and a load volume of 3.30m3. Load capacity is enhanced by the availability of Citroën’s Overload Indicator technology, which alerts drivers when they’re nearing or exceeding the maximum payload.

David Morss, corporate sales manager for Groupe PSA UK, commented: “We’re very happy to announce that National Grid has chosen Citroën as a fleet partner. The Berlingo Van continues to win awards for its class-leading space, practicality and low running costs, making it an ideal vehicle to help maintain the country’s electric grid.

“National Grid are a valued, long-term customer, but it’s always rewarding to supply a new batch of vans. As a high-profile business at the very heart of UK infrastructure, our vans will be very visible on UK roads.”

The vans were supplied by Robins & Day Birmingham North and handed over prior to the UK lockdown measures.
