Citroën Renews AG2R Citroën Team’s Fleet With Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles Including The All-New C5 X

As the title co-sponsor of the AG2R CITROËN TEAM, Citroën will renew the whole fleet with new vehicles including Citroën’s new flagship model, the C5 X and the new C5 Aircross. The new fleet will consist of the following vehicles:  C5 Aircross Plug-in Hybrid, C5 X Plug-in Hybrid and Spacetourer. This is the first time that Citroën will be equipping the team with the C5 X. This shift to Plug-in Hybrid vehicles in the fleet is really significant as it showcases Citroën’s innovative approach in the energy transition towards sustainable mobility.

The fleet of vehicles available to the team is crucial as they are always on the move. One of the most important prerequisites for the vehicles is the space on board to carry everything is needed, from radio equipment to spare clothing, helmets, water bottles and supplies for the riders, bicycles and spare parts such as spare wheels and all the tools needed for maintenance. On average, for each race, a car carries up to 7 bikes on the roof.

They are able to guarantee the mobility of the entire team, both during races and during training, on all types of terrains, offering all the elements that are essential to the team, including benchmark comfort, space on board, accessibility and load capacity, the most advanced technologies at the service of safety as well as efficient and environmentally friendly engines.

Citroën strongly advocates sustainable mobility and believes that it should be available to everyone. Citroën is committed to electrify all of its range by 2025 with all electric or Plug-in Hybrid vehicles. By developing different approaches to mobility, Citroën wants to give freedom of movement back to people and show that the brand truly cares for the well-being of people.
