Morelli Group takes on Citroen vans in new fleet deal

Date: Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Automotive supplier Morelli Group has taken on 15 new Dispatch L2H1 HDi 125hp 6-speed manual Enterprise vans as part of a new fleet deal.

The Enfield-based company will locate the new vehicles throughout its UK mainland depot network, where they will be used to deliver automotive refinishing products.

The Dispatch vans are a combination of new vehicles to meet customer demand and replacement vehicles for life-expired vans that were acquired in a major expansion three years ago.

Some of the new vehicles were delivered to the recently refurbished Coventry branch, which was re-opened to relieve pressure on Morelli’s existing branches in the region.

Supplied by Citroën Coventry, the latest Dispatch vans have been acquired on ALD Automotive three year/135,000 mile contract hire agreements.

The majority of the Morelli Group fleet are DS and Citroën models, totalling 48 vans and 27 cars.

Robert Cohen, Morelli Group financial director, said: “We like the way Citroën offers its vans with defined trim levels, rather than a large number of options, which makes ordering vehicles easier.

“Citroën’s LCVs are ideal for our intensive, high-mileage operation, providing excellent driver comfort and safety, along with reliability and low cost of operation.”

The 1200kg payload Dispatch L2H1 Enterprise models are powered by an HDi 125 engine, which has fuel economy of 44.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 168g/km.

Standard specification includes air conditioning, rear-parking sensors, a Connecting Box (including Bluetooth hands free and a USB socket), electrically folding heated door mirrors and a full steel bulkhead. In addition, the Dispatch also comes with Teletrac satellite navigation and Trackstar stolen vehicle tracking.
