Citroën ë-Berlingo Van

Citroën ë-Berlingo Van priced from £24,910

The all-electric Citroën ë-Berlingo Van, with a driving range of up to 171 miles, will cost from £24,910, after the Government PIVG of £3,000, excluding VAT.

The Citroën ë-Berlingo Van is available in Panel Van form, with two body lengths, and as a Crew Van.

The zero-emissions Citroën ë-Berlingo Van features a 50kWh battery and a 100kW (136hp) electric motor with up to 260Nm of torque. From a single charge, the ë-Berlingo Van has a range of up to 171 miles under WLTP testing.

The ë-Berlingo Van also supports up to 100kW rapid charging – with a 0-80% charge taking just 30 minutes.

All new ë-Berlingo Vans come with a ‘Mode 3’ charging cable with ‘Type 2’ connectors for accelerated charging from wallboxes and dedicated public charging points. All versions also feature a 7.4kW single-phase on-board charger as standard.

The new ë-Berlingo Crew Van can carry cargo and up to five people when needed and is currently exempt from Congestion and Ultra-low Emissions Zone charges.

Drivers have the choice of three operating modes: Normal, Eco and Power. To optimise the range, ë-Berlingo Van also features a regenerative braking system, with drivers able to activate a ‘B’ button via the central console to maximise energy recovery during braking.

All models also come with remote temperature pre-conditioning and an AVAS (Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System), which generates a distinctive sound at low speeds that is audible outside the vehicle for pedestrian safety.

The new ë-Berlingo Van is available in sizes ‘M’ and ‘XL’, with Medium models measuring 4.4m long, and XL variants coming in at 4.75m long. All versions are 1.90m high and – thanks to a specially adapted power steering system – have an agile turning circle of just 10.8m, with the exception of the XL Crew Van, which has an increased turning circle of 11.4m.

Load volumes in Panel Van ‘M’ versions range from 3.3m3 to 3.9m3 – with the EXTENSO® seat folded, while the ‘XL’ variant offers an increased available load volume of 3.8m3 to 4.4m3. ‘M’ variants can carry loads of up to 3.09m in length and have a maximum payload of 803kg, while the longer ‘XL’ model offers a 3.44m maximum load length with the EXTENSO® seat folded down, and a maximum payload of 751kg.

The new ë-Berlingo Van is available with a choice of two trim levels, Enterprise Pro and Driver Pro. Enterprise Pro trim is available on both Panel Van versions (‘M’ or ‘XL’) and on the Crew Van variant. Driver Pro trim is offered exclusively on the ‘M’ Panel Van model.
