Order books now open for Citroën ë-Berlingo electric MPV
Citroën has revealed pricing and specs for its ë-Berlingo electric MPV, which is now available to order.
Priced from £29,575 (incl. Plug-in Car Grant) and aimed at both business and private users, it’s offered in both five- and seven-seat configurations, bringing a range of up to 174 miles.
This uses a 136hp electric motor connected up to a 50kWh battery pack. The ë-Berlingo also gets three drive modes to prioritise power or range as needed and a ‘B’ mode regenerative braking system, activated via the central console to maximise energy recovery during braking.
The ë-Berlingo comes as standard with a 7.4kW single-phase on-board charger and an optional 11kW three-phase charger. A full charge from a 7.4kW wallbox takes 7.5 hours while the 11kW charger can charge the ë-Berlingo in four hours 45 minutes using a bespoke wallbox. It also supports up to 100kW DC fast charging, giving an 80% charge in less than 30 minutes. Battery warranty stands at eight years or 100,000 miles.
It’s offered in two lengths – M and XL. M versions come with five seats, while the XL version features two additional folding seats in a third row.
Boot space ranges from 775 litres to 3,500 litres in M models – with the ability to carry items up to 2.7m in length – while the XL model increases this to 1,050 and 4,000 litres respectively and with a 3.05m maximum load length. All versions also feature sliding side doors.
Two trims are available: Feel and Flair XTR, with Feel models available as M or XL variants, while Flair XTR is sold exclusively in M length.
Standard equipment on Feel models includes 16-inch steel wheels, LED daytime running lights, automatic headlights, electric door mirrors and automatic windscreen wipers, and rear parking sensors. The interior gets a capacitive eight-inch touchscreen, featuring both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The safety pack brings driver assistance features such as active lane keeping assist, active safety brake, cruise control and speed limiter, speed limit recognition and recommendation, and driver attention alert.
The Flair XTR builds on this with 17-inch alloy wheels, XTR badging, black roof bars and door mirrors and orange fog light surrounds, a head-up display and a 180-degree colour reversing camera. It also adds in a 10-inch fully digital driver display, Citroën Connect Nav with real-time traffic updates and connected services and emergency and assistance features.
