Budget Car and Van Rental UK has invested in a fleet of 100 fuel-efficient Mercedes-Benz Citans.

Supplied by Dealer S & B Commercials, all are 109 CDI models and powered by 90 hp engines that deliver up to 61.4 mpg (combined cycle), as well as low CO2 emissions of 123-130 g/km.

The long-bodied variants they also offer cargo volumes of 3.1m³, together with a practical interior concept for easy loading, and intelligent load-securing rings for tensioning straps on the load compartment floor to protect the cargo, according to the company.

“We have seen a very broad appeal for our van rental service, from small business owners requiring a temporary addition to their existing fleet, to private consumers looking for a convenient and cost-effective option for moving home,” said Alan Olivier-Smith, Head of Commercial Vehicles at Avis Budget Group. “The Mercedes-Benz Citans will cater to all of our customers’ needs, and be a very welcome addition to our range of commercial vehicles available across our UK network.”

Budget Car and Van Rental UK has over 50 years’ experience of providing rental services to value-conscious customers. It is emphasising its “National network - local relationships” offering, with the Citans now available from over 80 locations nationwide on flexible, cost-effective terms, including short- to long-term hires, and numerous options made to order for the specification, so they are fit for purpose, according to the company.
