Sign up to receive news about the up and coming launch of the New Citroën ë-Berlingo Van.
New ë-Berlingo Van is powered by a 100kW (136hp) electric motor and can reach a maximum speed of 84mph (where permitted) regardless of the driving mode used. Drivers can choose between three driving modes via a specific control in the centre console:
Charge time is optimised:
New ë-Berlingo Van features delayed charging functionality that allows drivers to take advantage of off-peak electricity tariffs. New ë-Berlingo Van also offers thermal preconditioning, enabling the temperature in the cabin to be increased or decreased to an optimum 21 degrees whilst still connected to the mains, meaning that power is not drawn from the vehicles battery.
Using the My Citroën app, drivers can access many of the van's functions remotely, including managing the battery charging process, viewing the charge level, thermal preconditioning of the cabin and controlling the delayed charging. All can be configured from a smartphone or tablet, or directly using the vehicle's touchscreen, which offers connected browsing via the "Energy" menu. This operation is possible for domestic charging (mode 2) or fast charging (mode 3). Delayed charging can be modified instantaneously.
Another benefit for drivers comes in the form of a six month free membership to BP Pulse (formerly known as Polar), offering 7,000 public charge points across the UK, with certain locations offering rapid charging to accommodate the 100kW charging capability of new ë-Berlingo Van.
New ë-Berlingo Van can be identified by a monogram of the electric "ë" before the Berlingo name on the left rear door, and in its charging flap, located where the fuel-filler flap would otherwise be.
Inside, everything has been designed to make sure using ë-Berlingo Van is easy.In the central console, an ë-Toggle switch controls the gearbox – with Park, Reverse, Neutral and Drive functions – together with a selector enabling the three driving modes to be activated: Eco, Normal and Power. New ë-Berlingo Van has a 8-inch touchscreen with a specific "Energy" page in its menu, which gives access to the vehicle's electric features. This includes an energy flow animation that shows the electric powertrain operating in real time. It also shows the driving mode being used, the electric motor in operation and the charge level of the battery, plus consumption statistics. The driver can also see the delayed charging and thermal preconditioning settings.
Citroën Berlingo Van has set the standard in the small van segment for three product generations. Berlingo Van was the first van with an integrated cabin, a diesel variant, three front seats, an electric parking brake and, more recently in the latest generation, an Overload Indicator. It is the ideal partner for professionals and fleet operators, with more than 1.6 million models sold throughout the world since the first version was launched in 1996.
New Citroën ë-Berlingo Van offers all the benefits from the architecture and design of the ICE versions. The new model is just as compact and provides the same modularity, ergonomics, internal space, storage and optimised loading capacity, making it an ideal working tool.
Citroën ë-Berlingo panel vans comes in two sizes: M, measuring 4.40m long, and XL, measuring 4.75m long. New ë-Berlingo is also available as a Crew Van, offering seating for up to five, based on the XL version. New ë-Berlingo Van is 1.84m tall allowing it to enter even the most restricted underground car parks.
As the driver can fold down the passenger seat in the EXTENSO® cabin, maximum load length in ë-Berlingo Van extends up to 3.09m in the M version and 3.44m in the XL version.
With an effective width between the wheel arches of 1.23m, ë-Berlingo Van can carry two Euro pallets, one behind the other. Load volumes are the same as in the ICE versions – 3.3m3 (M without EXTENSO ® cabin), and up to 4.4m3 (XL with EXTENSO ® cabin). The payload is up to 800kg and the towing limit is up to 750kg.
New ë-Berlingo is available in a choice of two trim levels for the UK market, popular 'Enterprise' and range topping 'Driver' specification.
Best in Class – the new ë-Berlingo Van includes 16 useful driving and safety aids. To make driving easier ë-Berlingo Van offers keyless entry & start, a colour head-up display (new in this market segment), hill start assist, front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera with surround rear vision, intelligent beam headlights, an automatic electric parking brake, cruise control with programmable speed limiter and an overload indicator (also completely new in this segment). For greater safety it also offers Active Safety Brake, active lane departure warning, driver attention alert, distance alert, trailer stability control, Grip Control® with Hill Descent Assist, extended traffic sign recognition and recommendation.
