The Citroen e-Berlingo car lease range is the all-electric version of the firm’s award-winning MPV.
It’s an impressive offering with zero emissions and a 50kWh lithium-ion battery that will meet most drivers’ needs with a range of 174 miles.
The battery is mated to a 100kW electric motor producing 136 hp which means the e-Berlingo delivers good, all-round performance.
This is an ideal choice for business and private users and the battery features rapid charging so will take under 30 minutes to achieve 80% of the battery’s capacity.
Otherwise, drivers are looking at 7.5 hours to recharge the battery using a wallbox, or there’s an onboard charger as an option to recharge the battery in less than five hours when using a wallbox.
