AL-KO Kober has worked in partnership with Manchester-based commercial vehicle bodybuilders Alloy Bodies to create the HiLo, an all-new, low-floor ‘aero Luton’ conversion based on the Citroen Relay ‘back-to-back’ cab.
The Citroen Relay HiLo is the latest addition to the Alloy Bodies range.
By adopting a low-floor AL-KO Kober chassis conversion to create a Luton-style commercial vehicle, the HiLo offers a 1,335kg payload and increases volume by approximately 1.5 cubic metres,.
Anthony Clayton, business development manager at Alloy Bodies, said: “Our first partnership with AL-KO Kober was in 2009 when a commercial vehicle OEM asked us to create a concept using its AL-KO converted chassis.
"Unfortunately, the concept was eventually shelved by the OEM as it was deemed that demand wasn’t significant enough at that time.
“However, when a UK-based Citroen dealer and customer approached Alloy Bodies and asked that a solution be developed for the ‘back-to-back’ Relay cab, we knew that AL-KO had the best and only solution for the project in the UK.”
The HiLo conversion on the AL-KO Kober chassis has enhanced sales for the company and now accounts for about 25% of all conversions for Alloy Bodies.
