Van drivers should be thrilled with the prospect of the new Citroën Berlingo Electric van. With average running costs of just 2-3p per mile, it is everything you would expect from an electric van; it is economical and it is efficient, plus it has all the capacity and versatility that you would expect from a Citroën commercial vehicle. Namely, an impressive load volume which starts at 3.3m3 and extends to 3.7m3 thanks to versatile Extenso seat folding to increase space.
Drivers will also notice the ease of loading a Citroën Berlingo Electric. This is thanks to the flexible and adaptive 180-degree asymmetric rear doors and a sliding nearside side door for maximum access.
The load length starts at 1.8m and it has a versatile payload of 636kg, so it is much more than just functional, it is cavernous. Inside the cab of the Berlingo there is comfort and practicality in equal measure. Three full size seats can be found with plenty of storage and even a mobile desk thanks to a central seat that folds flat to present a writing panel.
For driver comfort, you’ll also find air conditioning, electric door mirrors and electric windows. Connectivity is provided via a Bluetooth integration and a CD/MP3 player which will help you stay entertained while you work.
There are no hidden costs or expenses with the Berlingo Electric; the battery is included in the price of the vehicle and, because there are far fewer mechanical issues, maintenance costs are invariably lower than petrol or diesel variants.
The battery that powers the electric Berlingo has two separate charging ports offered as standard. You can charge to 100% in just eight hours from a Type 2 socket - the AC ‘standard’ port - or in ten hours through a standard domestic plug socket.
A DC rapid charge point, which is also provided as standard, will get the battery to 80% in just 30 minutes. Happily, a fully charged battery will provide an impressive range of around 106 miles - perfect for city and urban deliveries.
The Citroën Berlingo Electric is practical, cost-effective and environmentally responsible: it is an energy revolution.
