The car’s cabin is designed for two or three passengers. Available in 4.4 meters (M) and 4.75 meters (XL) body lengths and a height of 1.84 meters. The XL version has a version with an extended cab.

The volume of the loading space varies from 3.3 to 4.4 cubic meters. meters. The lifting capacity is 800 kg and the towed trailer is limited to 750 kg.

The battery van is driven by an electric motor with an output of 100 kW (136 hp) and 260 Nm. The car is capable of accelerating to a maximum of 130 km / h.

The power and torque switch is limited by the drive mode switch with three positions:

Eco — 60 kW and 190 Nm available;
Normal — 80 kW and 180 Nm;
Power — 100 kW and 260 Nm (no limit).

The traction battery with a capacity of 50 kWh provides a range of up to 275 km (WLTP). There are several ways to charge the battery.

The easiest option is to connect the machine to a household outlet, but then it will take about 15 hours to replenish the energy (at a current of 16 A).

The Wallbox wall device will cope much faster: a single-phase 7.4 kW unit will charge the battery up to 100% in 7.5 hours, a three-phase 11 kW unit in 5 hours.

From the outside, Berlingo’s electric car looks the same as the classic versions of the van.

The novelty can only be recognized by the “ë” symbol, which is affixed in front of the model name on the left rear door and on the cover hiding the charger connector (located on the left side in the place of the fuel filler flap).

In the Citroen e-Berlingo salon, we note the presence of a special ë-Toggle toggle switch for controlling the transmission. It has five positions: Park, Rear, Neutral, Drive and Break. Nearby is a selector for selecting the driving mode.
