The Citroen Berlingo/Opel Combo Cargo/ Peugeot Partner vans, the joint collaboration from Groupe PSA, has been voted the Continental Tyres Irish Van of the Year 2020.
Voted by a jury of Ireland’s most experienced commercial vehicle journalists, including the Galway Advertiser motoring correspondent Padraic Deane, the annual Irish Van of the Year award acknowledges productivity, safety, comfort and fuel efficiency in the latest van technology.
The Citroen Berlingo/Opel Combo Cargo/Peugeot Partner came out on top in a field of six contenders for this year’s title. Reflecting the growing popularity of electricity as a fuel source, the competition included the electric powered Mercedes Benz e-Vito.
In the Continental Tyres Irish Car of the Year 2020 competition, for the first time, an electric car took the coveted title, the Kia e-Soul.
Presenting the award to the three Irish Van of the Year winners, Tom Dennigan of award sponsors, Continental Tyres, said: “The Citroën Berlingo/Opel Combo Cargo/Peugeot Partner is a worthy winner of the Irish Van of the Year title. What a great accolade to have for each van as we head into the busy January sales period.”
