Citroën’s ë-Berlingo van has officially launched in the UK, completing the brand’s electric LCV range.
The van is priced from £25,980 and available either as a panel van or a crew van able to transport cargo and up to five people.
It uses a 50kWh battery connected to a 136hp electric motor with up to 260Nm of torque.
Its official range stands at up to 171 miles and it supports up to 100kW rapid charging, with a 0 to 80% charge taking about 30 minutes.
All versions include a 7.4kW single-phase on-board charger as standard and come with a ‘Mode 3’ charging cable with ‘Type 2’ connectors.
Drivers have the choice of three operating modes: Normal, Eco and Power.
The ë-Berlingo Van also has regenerative braking, with drivers able to activate a ‘B’ button via the central console to maximise energy recovery during braking.
Panel van versions have a choice of two different body lengths – M and XL – while the crew van is solely available as an XL.
M models measure 4.4m long and XL variants come in at 4.75m. All versions are 1.9m high and have a turning circle of 10.8m (11.4m for the XL crew van).
The M version of the panel van bring load volumes from 3.3m3 to 3.9m3 and can carry loads of up to 3.09m in length and with a maximum payload of 803kg.
XL variants offer an increased available load volume of 3.8m3 to 4.4m3, along with a 3.44m maximum load length and a maximum payload of 751kg.
