Van lovers rejoice. Motorists who buy a new Citroën Relay Panel Van will soon get free fuel for a year.

Van lovers rejoice. Motorists who buy a new Citroën Relay Panel Van will soon get free fuel for a year. This 'equivalent' value offer is based on 10,000 miles annual usage. So, within twenty- eight days of purchasing the vehicle, its hard working owner receives either a fuel card or pre- loaded credit card. Very nice too. This cash saving offer goes live on September 1st 2011 and runs for the entire month. It will apply to every Relay Panel Van, plus every other new Citroën van.

The Citroën Relay Panel Van has more storage space than a monstrous cargo ship. To be precise, the largest version has a capacity of 17m3, is 6,363mm long, and 2,050mm wide. And the maximum payload? This is a back-breaking 1,820kg. Best get a few handy dock workers to help shift that lot. Oh, and tell your helpers to bring their chequebooks too. Prices for the largest model start at £24,790 plus VAT. Lots of money, but still cheaper than a container ship.

Ocean lovers with less cargo have a choice of several smaller variants, starting at £17,940 plus VAT. These have storage capacities ranging from 8m3 to 15m3. However, not everybody needs a traditional panel van, so this monstrous workhorse is also available with a: Tipper, Luton, Chassis Cab, and Crew Cab body-shell. The Citroen Relay is clearly as versatile as a cargo ship too. No wonder this beast is as popular as a free cruise on the Queen Mary 2.

Engines come in various shipshape flavours, including 2.2-litre 120hp and 3.0-litre 147hp diesel units. These are teamed with either five or six-speed manual transmission only, so no automatic options here. Performance and fuel consumption vary according to which body style is fitted, but unloaded panel versions typically average 31mpg. Still, who cares about fuel consumption? The super-spacious Citroen Relay comes with 'free fuel for a year'. Good stuff.
