Citroën has delivered an order of nine new Citroën ë-Dispatch vans through Varitech Systems Ltd on behalf of their client. The fleet of vehicles, supplied by Citroën retailer Yeomans in Exeter will be put to use for essential cleaning services across Leeds and the surrounding area. The Varitech Systems team have been able to customise new ë-Dispatch’s to cater for their customers specific needs, these include the installation of a 650 litre water tank, modular flooring on top of a tank capable of holding up to 250kg, pumps, controllers and filters, all easily accessible from the vehicle's side or rear.

 

Varitech Systems has been a long-standing customer of Yeomans Citroën, previously operating with a fleet incorporating models across Citroën’s petrol and diesel light commercial vehicle (LCV) range. Following the launch of 100% electric new ë-Dispatch, Varitech Systems is looking to make Citroën the sole supplier of vehicles for their STREAMLINE® fleet.

 

New ë-Dispatch provides Varitech Systems with a practical level of space and storage facilities. The battery has been positioned under the floor to maximise load space, providing up to 6.6m3 of load volume and a payload of up to 1,002kg. Thanks to the electric motor, drivers can now enjoy zero emissions, zero noise and vibrations, creating a more serene environment for more relaxing journeys. Available in a choice of three trim levels, ‘X’, ‘Enterprise’, and ‘Driver’ and ‘XS’, ‘M’ and ‘XL’ lengths, there is a new ë-Dispatch to suit a range of needs.

On behalf of their client, Varitech System opted for the popular ‘Enterprise’ specification in both ‘M’ and ‘XL’ lengths as well the very well-appointed ‘Driver’ specification in ‘M’ length. Both ‘Enterprise’ and ‘Driver’ models enjoy a wealth of standard equipment including air conditioning, rear parking sensors, cruise control with programmable speed limiter, an alarm, one touch electric windows, Moduwork® dual passenger bench seat with fold up outer seat with fold-down writing table and load-through bulkhead, 7” colour touchscreen with Apple Car Play™, Android Auto and electric parking brake. ‘Driver’ models then take things further with 17” ‘Curve’ alloy wheels, Citroën Connect Nav, Park Assist 180° parking camera, head-up display and adaptive cruise control amongst a host of other features.

The multi-award-winning Citroën ë-Dispatch is the first vehicle to form part of Citroën's electrification strategy to offer fully electric variants across the van range by the end of 2021, with new ë-Relay large van available to order now and new ë -Berlingo Van later this year. Available with a choice of two battery sizes, new ë-Dispatch is capable of up to 143 miles (WLTP) with the 50kWh battery, or up to 205 miles with the larger 75kWh battery (WLTP). New ë-Dispatch can be easily charged at home through a 7Kw Wallbox, or via a super-fast public charging station at speeds of up to 100kW that can recharge 80% of the battery in just 30 or 45 minutes for 50kWh and 75kWh versions respectively.

 

Scott Westerby, Fleet Director, Citroën UK, commented: "It is great to hear Varitech Systems has placed an order for nine Citroën ë-Dispatch vans on behalf of their client. Varitech Systems has been a loyal customer for Yeomans Citroën, and I am always pleased to see that our range of vehicles continues to impress fleet operators. New Citroën ë-Dispatch has received a great reception from customers and industry experts since launch, and we hope to be able to provide operators like Varitech Systems’ client with even more vehicles to help them carry out their work practically, cost effectively and emission free.”

 

Varitech Systems Ltd is a family business that has been trading from the South West of England for over 15 years, and are a frequent customer of Yeomans Citroën as they have expanded their customer base. New Citroën ë-Dispatch provides financial benefits to businesses that may need to drive in and around key cities across the UK that are introducing Ultra Low Emissions Zone charges, whilst at the same time offering considerably lower whole life costs than an equivalent internal combustion powered van.

Jason Scott, Sales & Marketing Manager at Varitech Systems Ltd, said: "When an urgent request came in from one of our national customers for multiple electric vehicles, we turned to John Hale, Local Business Manager at Yeomans Citroën for assistance. He secured vehicles from across the Citroën dealer network and made them available in time for us to complete our technical installations in the weeks we were given.

 

“Our collaboration with John at Yeomans Citroën proved beneficial as it allowed us to have visibility of our preferred range of vehicles in build, in transit, at the distribution centre and on site. The new Citroën ë-Dispatch models will allow our client to operate their fleet in an environmentally positive way, whilst the practical load capacity and range capabilities will support the necessary services required. We are looking forward to supporting our expanding customer base throughout 2021 and beyond in partnership with Yeomans Citroën Exeter.”
