With increased practicality, comfort and safety the New Dispatch van is set to become the ideal partner to UK professionals. The new generation of the Dispatch encompasses new design features, technologies and architecture that is fresh to the segment.
The New Dispatch is a versatile van that is designed for the everyday hero with a wide range of professionals in mind including tradespeople, construction workers, local authority employees and delivery and service professionals.
To enable easier day-to-day use and become more user-friendly, the New Dispatch introduces innovative hands-free sliding side doors.
In recent car models we have seen the usefulness of motion sensors underneath the boot compartment that automatically open the boot. This technology works in the same way as a simple wave of your foot can open the side compartment of the New Dispatch.
This means that you no longer have to place your load down and fumble around for the keys to open the door; the hands-free keyless entry removes all of the unnecessary hassle.
The New Dispatch is available in three different lengths. The core market M and XL versions at 4.95m and 5.30m respectively are joined by an all-new XS version at just 4.60m. The XS Dispatch van has been created to satisfy the city market's growing urbanisation and E-commerce boom. Despite its smaller size the XS has the same 1400kg payload as the M and XL versions, and in combi mode, can transport up to nine people.
The XS and M versions make for easy underground car park access owing to their height of just 1.90m, something that is not always true of vehicles in this segment. The New Dispatch can tow up to 2.5 tonnes and has a load volume ranging from 5.1 cubic metres to 6.6 cubic metres.
The load length of the New Dispatch can be extended by an extra 1.16m thanks to the modular design of the front passenger seat, a special bulkhead and a flat floor. This will enable the user to store long objects such as scaffolding poles or wooden panels on the inside rather than having to secure them to the vehicle externally.

The New Dispatch provides best-in-class fuel consumption and CO2 emissions from its BlueHDi 115 S&S 6-speed manual engine producing 55.4mpg and 133g/km of CO2. Running costs are controlled thanks to latest-generation 1.6-litre and 2-litre diesel engines ranging from 95hp (210Nm) with a manual gearbox to 180hp (400Nm) with an EAT6 automatic gearbox.
In a sector first, the New Dispatch is available with a head-up display. Essential driving information such as actual and recommended speed, navigation instructions, collision risk alerts and cruise control/speed limiter settings can be displayed on a transparent screen in the driver's eye line.
The New Dispatch displays other car-like technology including 180-degree Park Assist and Active Safety Brake. Other impressive technology is the CITROËN Connect Nav with a 7" touchscreen display and voice-operated 3D navigation. The touchscreen is also compatible with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink which makes staying connected even easier when you are on the move.
The new Citroën Dispatch has two auto engines available. The entry level engine comes with 94bhp 1.6 BlueHDi six-speed ETG6 auto engine that is capable of producing 54.3 miles per gallon (mpg) and CO2 emissions figures of 135g/km. There is also a 178bhp 2.0 BlueHDi six-speed ETG6 engine which can carry up to 1,400kg and offers 46.3mpg.
Like all of the other engines in the lineup, the automatic engine is Euro 6 emissions compliant. It is also available whether you need the XS, M or XL size van in either Enterprise or Enterprise Plus configuration.
Don't compromise on space for your kit just because you need to carry a few more members in your team. The Dispatch Crew van comfortably sits up to six people and still offers you a load space of 4m³, with loads up to 2.3 metres long easily accommodated and a payload up to 1,185kg.
As standard, the Dispatch Crew van receives the 7" touchscreen infotainment system with MirrorLink and Coffee Break Alert, as well as air conditioning, Bluetooth, DAB radio and central locking with deadlocks.
The new Citroën Dispatch comes with a range of six advanced BlueHDi diesel engines that provide low fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures. Each meets the latest Euro 6 standards and delivers the kind of flexible performance that makes every journey a pleasure. The BlueHDi 115 S&S produces just 133g/km of CO2, making it the best in class. Whichever engine you select, with options from 95hp to 180hp, there's an exceptional engine to suit all jobs:
