Citroën ë-Berlingo Van Electric

Citroën ë-Berlingo Van Electric

The new all-electric Citroën ë-Berlingo Van has been launched in the UK, with a range of up to 171 miles, and priced from £25,980 (after the Government Plug-in Van Grant of £2,500, excluding VAT). 

The new Citroën ë-Berlingo Van Electric is available in Panel Van form, with two body lengths – ‘M’ and ‘XL’ – and as a Crew Van.

Medium models are 4.4m long, and XL variants are 4.75m long. All versions are 1.90m high and – thanks to a specially adapted power steering system – have a turning circle of just 10.8m (with the exception of the XL Crew Van, which has a 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 Citroën ë-Berlingo Van Electric has 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.

The new ë-Berlingo Crew Van also has a range of up to 171 miles (WLTP), and can carry cargo and up to five people. 

The Citroën ë-Berlingo Van Electric is currently exempt from Congestion and Ultra-low Emissions Zone charges.

All new ë-Berlingo Van Electric models 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.

There are three operating modes: Normal, Eco and Power, and a ‘B’ button to maximise energy recovery during braking.

The ë-Berlingo Van Electric is available with a choice of two trims 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.
