Six New Citroën C3 models go into service with Stoke-on-Trent City Council. This is one of the first major orders for New C3 from a public sector organisation.



Stoke-on-Trent City Council has taken delivery of a fleet of six New Citroën C3 models, which is part of an order for ten New C3s in total. This is one of the first major deliveries of New C3 to a public sector organisation. The cars will be used to assist Stoke-on-Trent City Council team members working with vulnerable residents.

The fleet is finished in a wide range of colours, taking full advantage of Citroën’s bi-tone colour schemes for New C3, which provide a contrasting roof colour to compliment the chosen body colour. All models are powered by Euro-6 diesel engines, which meet the most stringent European emissions regulations yet. On-board equipment includes satellite navigation for each car.

Citroën secured the order following a competitive tender process. The New C3 met all the requirements specified by Stoke-on-Trent City Council. The exacting tender document included a range of factors from price and technical specification, to particular requirements for aftersales support and maintenance.   Each New C3 has been specified with an extended warranty, providing cover for five-years/100,000 miles – the expected service life of the cars with Stoke-on-Trent City Council. The supplying dealer is W R Davies Citroën of Stafford.

These are not the first Citroën models to be supplied to Stoke-on-Trent City Council. This order for New Citroën C3s follows two earlier fleet deliveries of Grand C4 Picassos and Relay vans.

Commenting on the order, PSA Group UK Fleet Director Martin Gurney said; “This is a significant public sector order for New Citroën C3, following so swiftly after the car’s launch at the beginning of January.  It shows that New C3 offers a competitive edge in a sector where there is tough competition. We take it as a compliment that a demanding public sector customer such as Stoke-on-Trent City Council has chosen to do business with Citroën once again.”
