Figures released by the SMMT show that CItroen’s strong start to 2014 has continued, with growth through the first three quarters of the year.
To date, Citroen has increased its LCV sales by 16.8% in 2014, compared with the same period last year.
Citroen’s LCV performance has been boosted by the launch of the New Relay range and the continuing strong performance of the Berlingo.
LCV registrations of 4,472 saw the company move up to fourth place in the up to 3.5 tonne gvw sector.
All four Citroen LCV model ranges performed well, both in September and through the first three quarters of the year.

Jeremy Smith, Citroen’s Head of Commercial Vehicles & Business Sector Operations, commented: “Citroen is delighted to have delivered such a strong LCV sales performance through the first nine months of 2014. We have achieved this with a well-proven and respected range of vehicles. In spite of a large number of new LCV launches by our competitors, we continue to achieve strong sales growth by concentrating on sectors where quality, reliability, network service and low cost of operation are key customer requirements.”
