The new generation Citroën Dispatch features an architecture optimised to offer more practicality, comfort and safety. It boasts the latest in driver assistance and engine technologies, making it the ideal partner for "Everyday Heroes". New Dispatch is available in three lengths and with hands-free sliding side doors as an option. Discover its great features and versatility in the video above.
The design of New Citroën Dispatch is inspired by the world of passenger cars and SUVs. Its styling is fluid and practical, with load volumes that express confidence and robustness. Its character? – is energetic and reassuring. The front end features a short, horizontal bonnet sitting above large headlamps placed high up, giving you great visibility and a commanding position of the road.
New Citroën Dispatch is available in three lengths. In addition to the core-market M (4.95 m) and XL (5.30 m) versions, this van also comes in an all-new compact and practical 4.60-m model. Like the M and XL lengths, the XS version offers a payload of 1,400 kg. Could it be that the best vans are shorter...?
At ease in any situation! With a height of just 1.90 m for the XS and M versions, New Dispatch can easily access car parks, which is not always the case for vehicles in this segment. No need to circle the block several times because a car park entrance is too low. You save time and you park closer to your customers. (XL version: 1.93 m)
Citroën comfort at your service! Whether the comfort comes from the seats, the dashboard or the smooth ride, New Citroën Dispatch helps you get the job done while enjoying features from the passenger car universe. Every trip is efficient and relaxed.
Your hands are full? No problem. With the optional hands-free function, you open and close the side doors without touching them, an exclusive feature in this segment. Simply pass your foot under the corner of the rear bumper and the vehicle unlocks and the door on the side where you are standing opens automatically.
The same action closes the door and locks the vehicle when you are leaving it. This function simplifies loading and unloading when your hands are not free!
Depending on the needs and business of each professional, New Dispatch offers two types of panelling: unfinished wood and treated wood (anti-slip, waterproof, easy to wash and protected by aluminium sills). Several combined kits are offered to protect either the floor load area alone or the side panelling over its entire height and the wheel arches as well.
There are numerous storage compartments in the New Dispatch cabin, including a lower glovebox equipped with jack and 12V sockets, a USB socket (depending on the version), a large storage compartment under the passenger seat where things like work shoes and a hard hat can be stowed, cup-holders on the dashboard, a central overhead open storage compartment, and two door pockets large enough for a 1.5-litre bottle.
New Citroën Dispatch also offers safe, easy and stress-free driving. Besides useful everyday functions like hands-free entry and start and hands-free sliding side doors, New Citroën Dispatch offers technology that make travelling easier.
A truly exclusive feature: the 7" Touchscreen displays a 180° overhead view from the reversing camera. When the vehicle gets close to an object, the system zooms in so that the remaining distance is precisely shown.
This advanced traction control system ensures optimal front wheel grip according to the type of terrain. The Grip Control system can be combined with the Worksite Pack (heavier payload, 20-mm-higher suspension, protective plate under the engine) to give New Dispatch better traction on difficult surfaces like worksites, dirt roads and trails.
This technology lets you keep your eyes on the road while viewing essential driver information (current and recommended speed, cruise control/speed limiter settings, navigation instructions and collision alert) on a transparent strip in front of the windscreen. A first for a vehicle in this segment.
Citroën Connect Nav (depending on the version) is the new 3D connected navigation system operated by voice control or the 7" Touchscreen. Citroën Connect Nav delivers connected services such as TomTom Traffic, which provides real-time traffic information, the location of service stations and car parks and their prices, and a search function for local points of interest.
You will also like the danger zones option, which indicates areas where there is a higher risk of accidents.
Listen to music on your smartphone or get directions? It's simple and intuitive with Mirror Screen (compatible telephone required)! Your compatible applications appear on the 7" Touchscreen.
Mirror Screen functions with Apple CarPlay™ and MirrorLink®.
The Active Cruise Control system adapts the van's speed to the speed of the vehicle in front of it. This automatic system can reduce the speed to 20 km/h by acting solely on the accelerator.
The Blind Spot Monitoring system warns you when there is vehicle in the blind spot angle by way of an orange warning lamp in the corner of the door mirror. Activated by four sensors fitted in the front and rear bumpers, this system operates at speeds between 12 and 140 km/h.
Something truly new, this system operates with a camera fitted at the top of the windscreen. It keeps the driver informed at all times of the speed limit. When a speed limit sign is detected, just press a button to set the recommended speed.
New Citroën Dispatch is available with diesel engines in the Euro-6 BlueHDi family. The exhaust line of this new generation of engines offered by the Brand since late 2013 drastically reduces nitrogen oxide emissions while also lowering CO2 emissions. The SCR catalyser fitted ahead of the additive particulate filter is the only post-treatment system able to reduce NOx emissions by as much as 90% while also lowering CO2 emissions by up to 4%.
The mixed-cycle consumption and CO2 emissions of the diesel engines offered with the New Citroën Dispatch (XS lengths) are as follows:
- BlueHDi 95 BVM (70 kW - 210 Nm at 1750 rpm): 5.5l/100 km and 144 g/km of CO2
- BlueHDi 115 S&S BVM6 (85 kW - 300 Nm at 1750 rpm): 5.1l/100 km and 133 g/km de CO2
- BlueHDi 120 S&S BVM6 (90 kW - 340 Nm at 2000 rpm): 5.3l/100 km and 139 g/km of CO2
