Citroën UK has opened its order books for new ë-Berlingo, the all-electric version of the brand’s multi-award winning MPV. Prices and specifications are now confirmed – with new ë-Berlingo available in five-seat and seven-seat form – and with prices starting from £29,575.
The zero emissions new ë-Berlingo features a 50kWh Lithium-ion battery pack and a 100kW (134 bhp) electric motor, allowing the new model to achieve a range of up to 174 miles. Aimed at both private and fleet or business users, new ë-Berlingo supports up to 100kW rapid (DC) charging, with an 80 per cent re-charge taking less than 30 minutes, while a full charge from a 7.4 kW single-phase wallbox takes 7.5 hours thanks to the 7.4kW on-board charger. Customers with access to three-phase power can specify an optional 11kW on-board charger that will charge new ë-Berlingo in 4 hours 45 minutes, when using a wallbox that also supports this faster home-charging solution.
Citroën says that, capable of seating five, or up to seven people (XL body length only), and with a range of up to 174 miles from a single charge, new ë-Berlingo offers both private and business users a unique choice of vehicle. With zero emissions, new ë-Berlingo also keeps running costs low for fleet operators and drivers, with a Benefit-in-Kind rate of just 1 per cent, and exemption from London congestion and ultra-low emissions charges.
Drivers have a choice of three driving modes: Eco, Normal and Power, to suit a variety of driving conditions. To optimise range, new ë-Berlingo also features a regenerative braking system, with drivers able to activate a ‘B’ mode via the central console to maximise energy recovery during braking.
New ë-Berlingo is available as ‘M’ (Medium) or ‘XL’ variants with M versions measuring 4,403mm long and 1,844mm high. The XL version is 4,753mm long and 1,849mm high.
From launch in the UK, new ë-Berlingo is available with two trim choices, ‘Feel’ and ‘Flair XTR’, with Feel models available as M or XL variants, while Flair XTR is sold exclusively in M length.
