Citroen happy with brisk sales of its low-CO2 vehicles, makes deals to sell more

Citroën is making a point of its collection of low-CO2 emitting vehicles, and how well they're selling in the UK. The news from the automaker is that, of all the vehicles sold that emit less than 120 grams of CO2 per kilometer, 15 percent bore the Citroën name. But that's not enough for the double chevrons, as Citroën announced today that it will pay the Road Fund Licence for all new sub-120 cars sold in July. There are 22 Citroën models that will qualify for the deal, including the C1, C2 and C3 superminis and some of the larger C4s. Press release details after the jump.

Citroën produces many of the most fuel efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles available, last year selling almost 15% of all low CO2 emitting cars (120g/km or less) registered in the UK.

Now, to encourage even more new car buyers choose low CO2 Citroëns, the Company has pledged to pay the Road Fund Licence on all their new car sales in this category during July. This is in addition to minimum £500 part exchange cashback offers on many models, when customers trade-in older, more polluting vehicles.

Right now Citroën has 22 models that fall into the sub 120g/km category and it's not just the Company's superminis such as the C1, C2 and C3, but even some versions of the family size C4.

And Citroën buyers going green can also have sporty looks, with all of the sports-styled C2 models (including the 65.7 mpg, 113g/km 1.4HDi Furio) benefiting from one year's free insurance for drivers as young as 19, as well as cashback deals of up to £2,405.

Another highlight in Citroën's summer calendar is a generous cashback offer that brings the entry-level C4 down to just £9,995, whilst elsewhere in the range, Citroën's award-winning C4 Picasso SX is now available with a 4 year, zero percent finance deal. The Xsara Picasso also comes with some attractive cashback deals of up to a massive £3,740 on the 110hp 1.6 HDi Desire model.

Note to Editors: All offers are applicable on vehicles ordered and registered by 31st July 2007. Free Insurance available to retail customers on the UK mainland and Channel Islands for vehicles ordered and registered by 31st July 2007, subject to terms and conditions.
