Special needs transport provider 24×7 Ltd has taken delivery of 100 Citroën Grand C4 Picasso VTR+ e-HDi 115 MPVs.

Using CAP vehicle valuations, the Stansted-based company chose the Grand C4 Picasso VTR+ model for its class-leading residual values and low running costs.

The vehicles were bought outright and supplied by Citroën London West and will operate on an intensive, high mileage schedule for 12 months.

The spacious seven-seaters offer emissions of 105g/km CO2 and a combined cycle fuel economy of 70.6mpg, matching 24×7’s environmental demands.

The vehicles will be maintained by a local Citroën Authorised Repairer, along with a number of nine-seat Citroën Dispatch Combis, Relay minibuses and the remainder of 24×7’s 600-passenger carrying vehicle fleet.

Andy Mahoney, Managing Director at 24×7, said, “Citroën Grand C4 Picasso is a perfect match for our corporate environmental aspirations, while delivering the low operating costs and excellent residual values crucial for our business. We transport some of the most vulnerable young people and their carers, where reliability and safety is paramount.”

For over a decade, 24×7 has been a major force in special needs passenger transport for young people and their carers. Drivers receive comprehensive training in defensive driving techniques, as well as taking sign language courses and awareness courses for autism, ADHD, Asperger’s syndrome and epilepsy
