A Citroën Relay Ready to Run Crew Cab tipper, from the 2018 Relay Ready to Run range is among the exhibits on the Citroën stand at the CV Show, which takes place at the NEC from 24-26 April 2018.

Like all models in the Relay Ready to Run range, conversions all conform to either European Whole Vehicle or National Small Series Type Approval. All Relay Ready to Run models are included in the Citroën LCV price list and carry a three year/100,000 mile warranty covering the complete vehicle.

Ready to Run Relay Tipper

2018 Citroën Relay Ready to Run tippers are based on the Relay 35 L2 Single Cab and L3 Crew Cab models. Features include bolted construction for ease of maintenance and ready adaptation using the Citroën Ready to Run options list. Steel and aluminium components are used to ensure robust construction and optimum payload.

Load securing eyes are fitted to a perimeter rail, keeping the deck clear. The front bulkhead/gantry provides a range of load securing points, including one-tonne capacity load securing eyes in the upper sections. The structure can support loads up to 400kg.

Double-skinned aluminium side boards are fitted with integrated lever lock assemblies. The tail board is supplied with full “Chapter 8” high-visibility markings.

Ready to Run tippers are fitted with underfloor, scissor-type tipping gear incorporates overload and hose burst protection. The mechanism is designed to be maintenance free for the life of the vehicle.

Citroën Relay Ready to Run tipper offers payloads* of up to 1,222kg and a load volume of 5.8m3.
A 24-hour parts supply service is available from Citroën’s Midlands service hub.

Dispatch Van

Two variants of the Dispatch van, which was given its international launch at the CV Show two years ago, will be on display on the Citroën stand. Both models feature the popular Enterprise trim, which adds a range of equipment including air conditioning, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, automatic headlamps and windscreen wipers, as well as reversing sensors and cruise control with programmable speed limiter. A 7-inch touchscreen with MirrorLink®, incorporating Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto is also part of the package.

Dispatch is available in three lengths XS, M and XL. The first Dispatch on display will be the longest XL model equipped with PSA Group’s Grip Control® traction assist system, offering a choice of Standard, Snow, Mud, Sand and ESP Off (ESP is disengaged until 30mph is reached) modes from a dash-mounted control dial. The second Dispatch van is an example of the best-selling Dispatch M Enterprise, featuring medium length bodywork.

Berlingo Electric

The stand display is completed with Citroën’s LCV best-seller, the Berlingo. The display model is the zero emission Berlingo Electric L2 550 LX, offering an NEDC range of up to 106 miles on a full charge.

three-level load rail lashing assembly to secure a wide variety of loads. This assembly can support loads of up to 400kg. The securing eyes in the upper extremities are rated at 1,000kg.

The side and tailboards are constructed from double-skinned aluminium and the load deck from non-slip birch plywood, top-fitted to an aluminium perimeter frame for ease of replacement. The perimeter frame also houses the 800kg capacity load securing rings.
