21.1.2022Citroen e-Berlingo launches in the UK
The Citroën ë-Berlingo has officially launched in the UK. Citroën is hoping that its electric van will shake up the UK's compact electric van segment. The company says that its award-winning Berlingo Van – the UK’s best-selling compact van in 2021 – will see its appeal grow still further with the introduction of the Citroën ë-Berlingo electric van.
Available in Panel Van form, with two body lengths, and as a Crew Van, prices for the ë-Berlingo start from £25,980, after the government Plug-in Van Grant of £2,500 (excluding VAT).
From a single charge, the ë-Berlingo van has a range of up to 171 miles under WLTP testing. It also supports up to 100kW rapid charging – with a 0-80% charge taking just 30 minutes.
Given its range of up to 171 miles, the ë-Berlingo can comfortably carry cargo and up to five people when needed. Drivers also have the choice of three operating modes when at the wheel: Normal, Eco and Power – to suit a wide variety of loads and on-road conditions. To optimise range, the ë-Berlingo also features regenerative braking, with drivers able to activate a ‘B’ button via the central console to maximise energy recovery during braking.
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.
