Citroen stole the show at the 2021 What Van? Awards by scooping up three awards.
The new Citroen e-Dispatch was named ‘Electric Van of the Year’ and overall ‘Van of the Year’, whilst the Berlingo took home the ‘Compact Van of the Year’ title.
Judges were impressed by the e-Dispatch’s all-electric range of up to 205 miles and praised Citroen’s electric model for its wide choice of payloads and load volumes, highlighting its adaptability to meet a variety of business needs.
James Dallas, Editor at What Van?, commented: “The new Citroen e-Dispatch inherits the refinement and load-carrying capability of its proven Diesel siblings that captured What Van?’s LCV of the Year Award in 2017 and retained the Medium Van prize the following year. The electric version is even better to drive and rapid charging, plus a range of more than 200 miles with the larger of two batteries available, should be enough to banish range anxiety and convince growing numbers of operators that switching to the e-Dispatch is the right choice environmentally, economically and operationally.”
The Berlingo was crowned Van of the Year at last year’s show, but it still added to its trophy cabinet this year by winning the Compact Van of the Year title.
Recognised for its range of engine options as well as its practical design and loading capacity, judges were impressed with the Berlingo once again, which has been a popular choice for many businesses since it hit the market.
Eurig Druce, Citroen UK’s Managing Director, commented: “The What Van? Van of the Year Award is a great honour for new Citroen e-Dispatch. Our first new-generation electric van is a huge milestone in our ambition to provide a fully electric LCV range by the end of 2021, and it is great to see customers and industry experts recognising the hard work that is going into the development of our models. We would like to thank What Van? for their continued support of our ever-improving range.”
