Sometimes the aim isn't to go as fast as you possibly can, or make an extravagant entrance upon arrival. Instead, it's about enjoying the endless adventures and memories you can share with family and friends.
Ultimately, that's where the innovative Citroën ë-Berlingo comes into the picture. Offering amazing levels of modularity and practicality, this is one MPV that is guaranteed to impress on a daily basis.
A number of safety features and driver aids add to the ë-Berlingo's impressive design, and have all been implemented to ensure your journey is stress-free. Citroën's latest all-electric technology is also present, offering the most eco-friendly means of travel.
ë-Berlingo is available in two different bodystyles; the smallest is called 'M' and the larger model is called 'XL'. If you only need five seats, then the shorter wheelbase is the one for you. However, the XL is a must-have if you need seven seats on a regular basis.
Even if you don't need the extra seats in the XL, you'll benefit from a massive 4,000 litres of storage space with the rear seats folded completely flat (1,050 litres with the third row seats up). The 'M' bodystyle still gives you 3,500 litres of space to play with once the seats are folded flat (775 litres with the seats up); hardly cramped.
Access to the rear is easy thanks to the two sliding doors. Once you're inside, you will find the lush seats have benefited from the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme.
The ë-Berlingo isn't just a basic leisure vehicle, because it comes loaded with a host of innovative technologies that have been designed to make everyday life more convenient.
The 8.0-inch touchscreen that sits at the top of the centre console provides four connectivity solutions: Mirror Screen, Citroën Connect Nav, Citroën Connect Box (car breakdown assistance) and Wireless phone charging.
A number of safety features can also be found in the ë-Berlingo, which have been carefully engineered to give you peace of mind. They include:
The Citroën ë-Berlingo has a fully electric driving range of up to 174 miles according to WLTP testing. This is much higher than the average daily mileage covered by UK motorists, allowing you to top up the battery charge overnight at home.
Range can be optimised by using the 'B' mode button on the central console, which increases the amount of energy recovered by the regenerative braking system.
Performance is on par with combustion-powered rivals, and drivers will enjoy the instant acceleration provided by the 100kW (134bhp) electric motor.
Charging the ë-Berlingo is a simple and straightforward process that you can undertake at home.
The standard-fit 7.4kW on-board charger can complete a full charge in 7.5 hours, while the optional 11kW three-phase charger brings the time down to just five hours when using an appropriate Wallbox. Wallboxes can be installed at your home relatively easily in most cases.
Out and about, 100kW rapid charging capability built into the ë-Berlingo means that you can take advantage of rapid chargers at motorway service stations, fully recharging the batteries in just 30 minutes.
