Citroen e-Berlingo Electric Van Review - a small, fully electric van
We have the new Citroen Berlingo van in stock. This fantastic small van just went fully electric and we think it's a stunning van with everything you would expect from a Berlingo with no compromises on space or comfort just much better for the planet and your business bank account.
Citroën e-Berlingo Van
The Citroën ë-Berlingo Electric is a small, fully electric van that meets the needs of a wide range of tradespeople and businesses. This electric van is full of benefits including reduced motoring costs, zero emissions as well as a competitive driving range and an impressive payload. The van can carry two or three people and comes in two sizes: M and XL. It's available in two trim levels: Enterprise Pro and Driver Pro.
Berlingo Electric - Range and Charging
The Citroën ë-Berlingo uses a 100kW electric motor which is paired to a 50kWh battery pack which is located under the load floor. This setup is the same as it's closely-related sister vans: Peugeot e-Partner, Vauxhall Combo-e and the Toyota Proace City Electric. The van has a range of 171 miles which is plenty for daily commuting and working between different jobs in and around London. A standard 7.4kW domestic wall box will charge the battery in seven and a half hours. Fast charging is also included, with a 100kW rapid charger taking the battery from 0-80% in just 30 minutes.
Performance is a strong point for the e-Berlingo. It produces 136bhp and 260Nm of torque, taking the van from 0-62mph in 11.7 seconds. This makes it more powerful than the diesel model, with instant torque from the electric motor, it's a nippy and efficient van that can carry its payload with ease. You have the choice between three driving modes to suit your journeys: Eco, Normal and Power. Eco mode restricts the power to reserve range, normal is for standard driving use and Power mode is beneficial for uphill stretches, heavy payloads or for towing purposes.
