Citroen has unveiled e-Berlingo, the latest version of its multi-award winning MPV that was first introduced in 1996. The new e-Berlingo features a 134bhp electric motor with up to 260Nm of torque. Connected to a 50kWh battery, the e-Berlingo can achieve up to 280km of range from a single charge under WLTP testing. The new model comes with three drive modes, Normal, Eco and Power, accessible via a special e-Toggle control.

To optimise range, the e-Berlingo features a regenerative braking system that is designed to recover energy during braking and deceleration. To enhance energy recovery, the driver simply activates the 'B' button on the central console. The battery warranty is eight years or around 161,000km.

The new e-Berlingo is distinguishable by the use of a subtle 'e' monogram on the front grille and tailgate
The new model comes three drive modes, Normal, Eco and Power, allowing the driver to choose the power output to suit their needs. Normal mode offers 105bhp and 210Nm of toruqe, ensuring the best compromise between operating range and dynamic performance.

Eco mode meanwhile offers 79bhp and 180Nm of torque, optimising energy consumption by reducing the output of the heating and air-conditioning without shutting them off completely and by limiting engine torque and power. Lastly, Power mode has 132bhp and 260Nm of torque, providing enhanced drivability and vehicle performance when carrying a heavy load.

The new e-Berlingo comes as standard with a 7.4kW single-phase on-board charger and, as an option, an 11kW three-phase charger. Supporting a variety of charging methods, the e-Berlingo can be charged using anything from a three-pin plug to 100kW rapid charging.

A full charge from a 7kW wallbox will take 7.5 hours, or 5 hours using an 11kW unit using three-phase power. Supporting up to 100kW DC fast charging, an 80% charge can be completed in just 30 minutes.

With hugely practical and versatile interior space, e-Berlingo is ideal for both families and business users
In addition, the e-Berlingo is equipped with functionality for deferred charging, for consuming electricity in off-peak hours, and for thermal pre-conditioning, like enabling motorists to set the cabin temperature when the vehicle is plugged in and thus reducing battery consumption in the first few miles of their journey. 

The new e-berlingo is available in 'Medium' or 'XL' variants, with Medium models measuring 4,400m long and XL variants at 4,750m long. All variants are 1,900mm tall and, thanks to a specially adapted power steering system, have a turning circle of just 10.8m.

The e-Berlingo has been designed with segment-leading roominess and functionality, for an easy and pleasant drive experience. Fully aligned with the Citroen Advanced Comfort programme, the new e-Berlingo places emphasis on spaciousness, modularity, comfort, and a bright and airy cabin, providing an enhanced experience for five or seven occupants.

Inside, the e-Berlingo boasts optimum storage capacity with up to 167 litres of storage space and up to 26 storage compartments within the cabin. The ingeniously designed Modutop offers 92 litres of practical storage space on its own - which is easily accessible from the seats in row two and via the boot through the opening rear window.

With an 8.0-inch infotainment screen and a 10-inch digital instrument panel, information is displayed in a clear and easy-to-read format
The e-Berlingo's 8.0-inch touchscreen includes an 'Energy' section in the menu, which provides access to energy flow information, consumption statistics and the activation of deferred charging or pre-set cabin temperature.

A 10-inch high-definition digital instrument panel is also available for optimal display quality and useful driving and navigation information. Drivers can configure the digital instrument panel display to suit their needs, highlighting the navigation system, energy-flow information or the driver-assistance systems.
