Citroën presents the fully electric Berlingo. The ë-Berlingo is the EV passenger version with a yellow license plate, which is carried alongside the electric delivery van, the ë-Berlingo Van.
The Citroën Berlingo Van was also launched as an electric ë-Berlingo Van at the beginning of this year. Now there is also a variant of the yellow license plate that is suitable for passenger transport. From the fourth quarter of this year, the ë-Berlingo will be at the Dutch dealers.
It will come as no surprise to anyone that the ë-Berlingo gets the same electric powertrain as the Van. So here too a 136 hp and 260 Nm strong electric motor that drives the front wheels. The battery pack has a capacity of 50 kWh. It gives the ë-Berlingo an electric range of 280 kilometers. The top speed is electronically controlled at 135 km / h. Incidentally, the full power of 136 hp is only available in Power mode. In driving modes Eco and Normal, the electric power is limited to 82 hp and 180 Nm and 109 hp and 210 Nm respectively. The Berlingo can charge 3-phase and can be completely filled with electricity on an 11 kW wallbox in about 5 hours. You can also hang the ë-Berlingo on a 100 kW charger. This means that the battery pack can be charged up to 80 percent of its capacity in 30 minutes.
The electric passenger version of the Berlingo differs, just like its petrol and diesel brothers, with a different nose from the gray license plate versions. The ë-Berlingo is particularly recognizable by its ë badges, blue accents and closed grille with a double chevronpattern. The ë-Berlingo is available as a 4.4 meter long M and a 4.75 meter long XL. Both variants can be ordered with five or seven seats. The luggage compartment of the ë-Berlingo M is 641 liters, the XL consumes 806 liters without flattening the seats.
Prices are not yet known. These will follow in the run-up to the market launch. The ë-Berlingo has the Peugeot e-Rifter and Opel Combo-e Life as sister models, of which the e-Partner and Combo-e are also electric van versions.
