LONDON – May 23, 2013: Citroen has just delivered 437 C1 VTR models to G4S Utility Services, the UK’s largest supplier of data collection and meter reading services. The C1s have been acquired for a new contract with a major power supplier and will be used by its UK-wide team of data collection and meter readers.

With this latest batch of cars, G4S Utility Services has now taken delivery of over 3,000 CitroŽn C1s during the last five years. The well-equipped CitroŽn C1 VTR has proved to be particularly reliable and robust, and has delivered low operating costs in this demanding application - with low CO2 emissions of just 99g/km and good fuel economy. G4S Utility Services report that its C1s are averaging up to 53mpg - an exceptional figure for this type of low mileage, stop and start operation.

All 437 C1s, like those previously supplied to G4S Utility Services, have been acquired and operated on Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions, 33-month, with maintenance, contract hire agreements. The cars will cover up to 13,500 miles per annum.

Andrew Williams, G4S Utility Services’ Fleet Operations Manager, commented: “We have a long-standing partnership with CitroŽn and Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions. Both these companies have listened closely to our needs and have tailored their offering accordingly. The CitroŽn C1 has proved to be very well suited to our demanding operation and with excellent aftersales back up. Similarly,Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions provides accident management services, courtesy vehicles to cover routine servicing, downtime management and an end of contract profit share, which includes service and under mileage rebates as applicable.”
