New Citroen Nemo Euro 5 Launched in the UK

French automakeCitroen annunced today that is new Euro 5 compient Nemo is available on the British market. The model promises lower emission, more power delivered from the engine, improved payload capacity, greater loadspace and, most importantly, an advanced Start-Stop system.

“The new Euro 5 Nemo uses advanced technology very effectively to provide significant operational, financial, environmental and safety benefits.  It now carries more, while using less fuel and also has significantly lower CO2 emissions.  This is a van designed to suit today’s tough economic climate,” stated Robert Handyside, Citroen’s Commercial Vehicle Operations Manager, in the press release announcing the arrival of the new model.

Under the stylish new bonnet of the Nemo rage sits a more powerful, higher-torque, more fuel-efficient and lower-emissions 1.3HDi diesel engine. The “Stop & Start” technology further improves fuel efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions in congested urban areas.

Compared to the old Euro 4 1.4-liter HDI, the fresh diesel unit produces 5 more horsepower and 30 more Nm of torque from lower down in the rev-range. Citroen estimates that, at current diesel pump prices, the frugal engine could save drivers £230 fuel cost saving, over 20,000 miles (32,000 km).

What’s more, with low CO2 emissions of just 113g/km (down from the Euro 4’s 119g/km), the Euro 5 1.3HDi powered Nemo is one of the greenest models on the market. The Euro 5 1.3HDi engine is also fitted with an efficient, self-regenerating Diesel Particulate Filter System (DPFS) that brings further environmental gains.

In a Stop & Start Nemo van, as the driver brakes to a halt, the engine stops and remains in standby mode while there is pressure on the footbrake. As soon as the driver releases the footbrake the engine restarts automatically.

The entry level Nemo X costs £10,665 and is fitted with:
  • ABS
  • Driver’s airbag
  • Extenso folding passenger seat
  • Power assisted steering
  • Transponder immobiliser
  • Two individual front seats, with height adjustable seat belts

  • RDS stereo radio/MP3 player
  • Trip computer
