Citroën, just like the other PSA' brands (Peugeot and Opel/Vauxhall), has introduced a passenger version of its compact van ë-Berlingo Van, the new ë-Berlingo.

It can be configured as five or seven-seater, with a length of 4.4 m or 4.75 m. The 50 kWh battery should translate into a range of up to 280 km (174 miles) of WLTP range. There is, as always, a 100 kW electric motor and DC fast charging capability at up to 100 kW (the on-board charger is either 7.4 kWh single-phase or 11 kW three-phase).

The only difference in specs that we have found is the top speed of 135 km/h (84 mph), slightly higher than in other PSA's compact electric van models: 130 km/h (81 mph).

According to French manufacturer, sales of the ë-Berlingo will start in the second half of this year. In the UK specifically, it will arrive in showrooms in Q4 2021.
