Citroen Berlingo 2019 Review Interior and First Photos
Back in 2012, two electric twin-vans were released. These were the Peugeot Partner and Citroen Berlingo equipped with a 49 kWh motor generating 67 hp and about 148 lb-ft alongside with a 23-kWh lithium-ion battery. Full battery charging takes from 8 to 15 hours. Today, the French tandem is releasing electric passenger versions only. In early 2017, Peugeot’s Partner Tepee Electric came on the market. Now, it’s turn for car. Both models keep their specifications with modest cruising range of 106 miles. So, the manufacturer is concentrating on practicality and comfort.
There are hardly any differences from the traditional auto which was restyled two years ago. The new electrocar can be identified only by a badge and absence of the exhausting pipe which was hardly noticeable even in the combustion engine version.
Inside, the van offers a lot of space, and due to the folded rear seats, the luggage section can be increased to 3,000 liters. The second-generation E-Beringo is equipped with a multimedia system with a seven-inch sensor display. This infotainment supports the MirrorLink and Apple CarPlay software. The central console may have different configurations depending on the installed gearbox. Aside from the new technologies, the car will get some new upholstery options. At the steering wheel, the driver can adjust the seat for his convenience. All of this will be offered in the Peugeot van as well.
The vehicle will be produced at the Vigo plant in Spain. There, the van will be available in early May of 2018. To September, it will come on the markets of France, United Kingdom, Italy, Belgium, Portugal and the Netherlands. As for the price, it is unknown yet. But supposedly, it should be a little bit higher then the price for the current model which starts from 30,200 euros.
