The Citroën ë-Berlingo is super fun and incredibly handy.
The Ludospace is the most convenient car that you can purchase for relatively little money. Sometimes it is wrongly claimed to be a van with a back seat. That is not quite the case. The Ludospace is a self-contained model designed as both a passenger car and a commercial vehicle. One of the founders of this genre is the Citroen Berlingo.
Several generations have passed since then. In the meantime, the models have become slightly larger, more luxurious, safer and more convenient. Cleaner too, because there is now one Citroën ë-Berlingo. That’s the all-electric version. Perhaps it is the most useful car today: spacious, clean and super practical.
The big advantage is that the Citroën ë-Berlingo is a, er, Berlingo, so with a lot of space. Both the space in the trunk and on the back seat. But it doesn’t end there, because you also have access to a so-called ‘Modutop’. In this case you have hidden boxes and cupboards in the roof. In short, it is a perfect way to get rid of your sunglasses collection. For number lovers: the 26 compartments in total offer space for 92 liters of stuff.
The Citroën ë-Berlingo has two sliding doors. This means you always have easy access to the cabin. Also handy: the tailgate with moving parcel shelf moves upwards. You can choose from a normal and extra long (XL) version. The latter has a cargo space of no less than 1,672 liters. Also nice: you can take 6 extra people with you in addition to yourself. However, it is a five-seater as standard.
Citroën ë-Berlingo drivetrain
In terms of drive, the Citroën ë-Berlingo is not a surprise. Under the hood is the well-known electric motor of 136 hp and 260 Nm. The top speed is limited to 135 km / h. The range is 280 km, although Citroën indicates that that is a provisional figure. That is a thing. If that assignment turns out to be optimistic, then you pay a relatively large amount for a car that you can drive relatively little with.
To be able to make a trade-off between performance and consumption, you have access to an ë-Toggle. This allows you to switch between three driving modes: Normal (80 kW and 210 NM), Eco (60 kW and 180 Nm) and Power (100 kW and 260 Nm).
The Citroën ë-Berlingo will appear at dealers in the fourth quarter of this year. Prices are not yet known.

With a radius of 500km and 150hp and v-Max of 150, I would consider it.
But now there is too much not to …+1
This Berlingo / Partner model drives really bad. Have had to drive it a few times, but it is not fun. Not even the variant with the most horsepower.
@cossiekiller: I like it better than the previous model. This one is on the platform of the 208/308 so should be better too.
