Citroen’s e-Berlingo is the all-electric version of the brand’s multi-award winning MPV. It features a 50kWh Lithium-ion battery pack and a 100kW (136hp) electric motor, which Citroen claims allows new model to achieve a range of up to 174 miles. Designed for both private and fleet or business users, the e-Berlingo supports up to 100kW rapid (DC) charging, with an 80% re-charge taking less than 30 minutes. Customers with access to three-phase power can specify an optional 11kW on-board charger.

Capable of seating five, or up to seven people (XL body length only), the e-Berlingo has Benefit-in-Kind rate of just 1% and exemption from London congestion and ultra-low emissions charges. Drivers have a choice of three driving modes: Eco, Normal and Power. A regenerative braking system optimises range with drivers able to activate a ‘B’ mode via the central console to maximise energy recovery during braking.

The e-Berlingo is available as ‘M’ (Medium) or ‘XL’ variants and both have a turning circle of just 10.8m. M versions come with five seats, while the XL version features two additional folding seats in a third row, bringing the total occupant capacity up to seven. Boot space in M versions ranges from 775-litres to 3,500-litres with all passenger seats folded forward, while the XL model increases available boot space to between 1,050-litres and 4,000-litres. For improved storage flexibility, all M versions come with a two-height parcel shelf, while the XL version features a retractable parcel shelf. In total there are 26 different storage compartments inside new e-Berlingo, which combine to add an extra 167-litres of useable space in the cabin.
