The innovative Berlingo Electric makes its UK debut on the Citroën stand at the CV Show. The new Berlingo Electric, which goes on sale later this year, builds on Citroën’s UK market experience with electric LCVs, gained with the first generation Berlingo Electrique van, launched in 1998 and on sale until 2005.

The new Berlingo Electric incorporates the latest electric vehicle technology. Its advanced; permanent magnet synchronous 49kW electric motor and 22.5kWh lithium ion battery pack gives the Berlingo Electric a range, of up to 106 miles (170Km).  Top speed is 68.75mph (110km/h).

Using a domestic socket, the vehicle can be fully charged in around 12 hours; alternatively, it can be charged to 80% of capacity in only 35 minutes using a specific 380V three-phase terminal in quick-charge mode. Thanks to the Berlingo being designed to be an electric vehicle from the outset, its load compartment space is not reduced by battery intrusion. The Berlingo Electric’s electric motor is positioned under the bonnet and the lithium-ion battery pack is located underneath the load deck.

The Berlingo Electric has a total lithium ion battery capacity of 22.5kWh – made up of 80 x 3.75V cells, each with a capacity of 75ah. Its permanent magnet synchronous electric motor, which produces 49kW (66hp), with a peak torque of 200Nm, developed between 0 – 1,500rpm, drives the front wheels through a speed reducer and a single-ratio gearbox.  In energy recovery phases (deceleration & braking) the electric motor acts as a generator.
