The CITROËN Berlingo Electric combines the functionality of the award-winning Berlingo van with a fully electric drive-train. Available in both L1 standard wheel-base and L2 long-wheel base versions, its modular, folding, dual-front passenger seat, enables impressive through-load carrying capability, with payloads comparable to conventionally fuelled counterparts.
Incredibly affordable to run, the van qualifies for the Government's OLEV Plug-In Grant, has lower maintenance costs than diesel or petrol, and can qualify for congestion charge exemptions, free parking, charging and bus lane access (incentives vary from city to city). Furthermore, unlike some competitors, the battery is included in the purchase price, with no leasing agreement necessary.
While an electric van may not be practical for all operators, it does provide a viable option for many, easily covering the majority of city and extra-urban trips.
Based on the the 2nd generation Berlingo, the CITROËN Berlingo Electric is a practical, cost-effective asset for given business applications, highlighting the operator's commitment to the environment and their 'green' business credentials.
Whilst the forward-thinking drive-train may be a departure from the norm, standard features remain consistent with those expected of a more 'run-of-the-mill' van, including:

The CITROËN Berlingo Electric utilises high energy density lithium-ion batteries. This technology ensures the absence of 'memory' effect, allowing charging of the battery at any time, whatever its initial charge state.
There are 3 different battery charging methods:
