The Citroën Berlingo and SpaceTourer internal combustion models have been killed off, and are now only available as 100%-electric models – “with immediate effect”.
The Citroën ë-Berlingo Electric and Citroën ë-SpaceTourer Electric are now the only versions of Berlingo and SpaceTourer (passenger models) available for future orders.
The same applies to the PEUGEOT Rifter and PEUGEOT Traveller, and the Vauxhall Combo Life and Vauxhall Vivaro Life.
All ë-Berlingo Electric and selected ë-SpaceTourer Electric models will qualify for the Government Plug-in Vehicle Grant (PiVG), with effect from Tuesday 11 January 2022.
The Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer, which can transport up to seven people, is still included in the range with an internal combustion engine.
The Citroën ë-Berlingo Electric is available in two lengths for up to seven people. It retains the same passenger compartment, three independent rear seats, the Modutop multi-function roof and an opening rear window.
The ë-Berlingo Electric has a 100kW electric motor with 136hp and a 50kWh lithium-ion battery pack which offers range of up to 174 miles.
It can be recharged up to 80% in 30 minutes at a public fast charging station (up to 100kW), and in 7½ hours via a 7.4kW single-phase 32A wallbox.
The Citroën ë-SpaceTourer Electric is a large MPV available in two lengths which accommodates up to nine people and has a driving range of up to 143 miles from its 50kWh battery pack.
Citroën has also reduced the manufacturer’s recommended retail prices (MRRP) of the ë-Berlingo Electric and ë-SpaceTourer Electric ranges, effective from 11 January 2022.
The pricing adjustments allow selected models to continue to attract the Plug-In Vehicle Grant that saw its criteria for eligibility changed on 15 December 2021.
‘Feel’ and ‘Flair XTR’ ë-Berlingo Electric models continue to attract the Government grant. The MRRP for the range now starts at £30,995 resulting in a price from £29,495 once the PiVG has been applied.
The Citroën ë-SpaceTourer Electric range, with seating for up to nine occupants, has received a reduction in MRRP on the recently introduced ‘Business Edition’ trim level. With pricing starting from £31,795 (£30,295 with £1,500 PiVG applied) both ‘M’ and ‘XL’ lengths will both qualify for the grant.
