Citroën to pay Road Fund Licence on all cars emitting under 120g/km CO2 in July

Citroën has pledged to pay the Road Fund Licence on all their new cars emitting 120g/km CO2 or less that are sold during July. This is great to get some news coverage, but the cost for this band of road tax is only £35 per year anyway! However Citroën says that this is in addition to minimum £500 part exchange cashback offers on many models, when customers trade-in older, more polluting vehicles.

Last year Citroën sold almost 15% of all low CO2 emitting cars (120g/km or less) registered in the UK. The company has 22 models that fall into the sub 120g/km category, such as the C1, C2 and C3, and also some versions of the family size C4.

There’s even the sports-styled C2 models (including the 65.7 mpg, 113g/km 1.4HDi Furio), which also benefits from one year’s free insurance for drivers as young as 19, as well as cashback deals of up to £2,405.

A cashback offer brings the entry-level C4 down to just £9,995, and Citroën’s C4 Picasso SX is now available with a 4 year, zero percent finance deal. The Xsara Picasso also comes with some cashback deals of up to £3,740 on the 110hp 1.6 HDi Desire model.

All offers are applicable on vehicles ordered and registered by 31st July 2007. Free Insurance is available to retail customers on the UK mainland and Channel Islands for vehicles ordered and registered by 31st July 2007, subject to terms and conditions.
