The Rainbow Trust fleet was supplied by Lookers Citroen and is financed by Lex Autolease on three year contract hire agreements, with maintenance. Each vehicle is expected to cover up to 20,000 miles annually. The charity's Citroen car fleet includes nine Berlingo Multispace e-HDi 90 ETG6 XTR models, nine Berlingo Multispace HDi 90 XTR manual versions and two C4 HDi 90 VTR manual cars.
Tinted windows are provided to give the families much valued extra privacy while on the move. The five-door Berlingo Multispace e-HDi 90 ETG6 offers the lowest CO2 emissions in the Berlingo range at just 115 g/km.
"The Berlingo Multispace is the perfect vehicle for us, offering complete versatility within our budget. The sliding doors are invaluable for being able to lift children in and out, especially those with disabilities. The boot is huge and accessible and can accommodate wheelchairs, boxes of toys, suitcases and all the things that go with providing a service to families. The low whole-life costs of each will allow us to divert more of our finances to our vital children's care," said Jonathan Bennett of the Rainbow Trust.
