2 Sisters is one of the first UK fleets to offer Citroen DS5 Hybrid4

The 2 Sisters Food Group - which acquired Northern Foods last year - has become one of the very first UK fleets to offer its company car drivers the innovative, powerful and environmentally considerate New Citroen DS5 Hybrid4.

Craig Burdock, 2 Sisters’
Procurement Category Manager, commented, “As a business, we are very environmentally focused. And like all companies we are looking to minimise fleet costs. So we are very excited about being amongst the first to offer Citroen’s DS5 diesel hybrid to our company car drivers, both for the environmental benefits and the driver benefits too.”

Having taken the decision to add the DS5 Hybrid4 to the list for its senior managers, all 2 Sisters’ fleet drivers will now have the opportunity to choose cars from Citroen’s increasingly diverse, stylish, economical, and fuel-efficient range. The cars are operated on a four-year lease through Interactive Fleet Management, which Burdock describes as a ‘one-stop shop’ for all the company’s fleet needs.

Andy Wady, Citroen UK’s Fleet Director, remarked, “2 Sisters’ response to DS5 and our Hybrid4 technology is a great example of how the DS line is opening doors for the entire Citroen range. New DS5, particularly the hybrid versions, are recognised as offering real driver, operator and environmental benefits, and that’s allowing us to show how cost effective the Citroen fleet range is as a whole.”        

With an ‘on sale’ date of April 2, DS5 is the first production Citroen with diesel hybrid technology, offering 200 hp and CO2 emissions from just 99 g/km. The sub-100 g/km CO2 model is exempt from VED, the London congestion charge and, for business users, the BiK tax rate is just 10 per cent.
